Glory will be 2 1/2 on Christmas Day. At 2:31pm, to be exact. My goal was to have her potty trained AND off the ninya (bink) by this day. Neither of these things are going to happen and yes, it’s all my fault.
When Glory was in school, she was about to go cold turkey. They actually never allowed binks and they go diaper’less at age 2. Not a day earlier and not a day later. They’re amazing and I looked forward to them doing most of the work. But we pulled her out ON her 2nd birthday so it was no good at all
for me. She’s been saying potty for about 2 months. She tells me “poo poo, mommy!” She’s used the toilet about 10 times but only to pee and it’s always terribly exciting. I’m the lazy one. I only put her on the toilet every third day or so. Still, she’s in to it!
So it seems we’re not that far off, right? Wrong. The idea of actually starting it full time makes my stomach hurt. It’s gonna be messy and I hate messy. It’s gonna hurt her feelings when she has accidents and I hate that too. (altho I’m really gonna try hard to avoid that) But the biggest part is that once my baby isn’t in diapers, I’m gonna have a really hard time thinking of her as a baby.
I’m trying to think of all the positives… like… her cute little bum in jeans, buying Wonder Woman panties and well, that’s it. No more long drives. No more chubby diaper butt. No more baby.
So, wish me luck and tell me I’m going to survive. Tell me if you kept your child on one floor for 3 days or if you set a timer every fifteen minutes. Tell me the tricks of the trade, friends. This is my first time around with this sort of thing. A mom needs the 411~!
