Hmph. I never like to admit that I'm wrong. But, lest my husband think its impossible, I'm doing it in a very public way.
Matthew, you were right, Annelise is not ready to potty train yet.
There, I said it.
Yesterday was a long Monday for us. Daddy had to work a 13 hour day with lots of meetings, so mommy thought it would be a great day to potty train.
Annelise had other plans.
She started out strong, really she did. We went the naked route, no panties or socks. Just a t-shirt. She got up on the potty several times by herself, but didn't go.
"I can't do it."
Then, I found her in the living room. "What are you doing, honey?"
"Oh, I just tooted."
"Um, no actually you just pooped on the floor and you're standing in it with your bare foot."
If you could have seen the horrified look on her face...oh it was priceless.
We got her all cleaned up, disinfected the floor 10 times and began again.
Until she peed on the floor.
I decided that was enough potty training for the day. I think we'll wait until the summer time when daddy can help.
