Full of it

Who?  And full of what?  The potty training in 3 days lady, that is who.  Its been 8 days and we still have a child who refuses to eliminate in the toilet.  She has become like a dog and has 2 favorite spots to pee.  And she does it so fast that by the time we rush her to the potty, she is done, leaving a wet trail.  Its truly gross.  She did great yesterday, except for the naptime poop fiasco, but today made such a nasty disgusting mess and was so defiant that she is in a diaper to sleep.  Quite frankly I am tired of her at this point and she is driving Howard crazy. I am thinking of burning the dang ebook that I printed off and sending the author a picture of yet another pooped in pair of underwear.

Good to know! Don't you just LOVE potty training?? I'd do labor again if they'd magically become potty trained around age 2.

Sounds like a dud of a book. I'm sorry things have been going so badly. Hopefully she'll catch on soon.

Yes she is I told you that she was.You gave it an honest try thought and that is what counts.

Not a fan of potty training myself. My dh is better at it then me. But when my now twelve yr old had a favorite spot dh moved the potty there. It would probably be less headache for you. The only other thing I have to offer is sympathy as I am struggling with my two year old as well and have decided to wait yet another month...or so.
