I think my least favorite thing about raising young children is potty training. It's messy. There is a lot of laundry involved and I already have so much laundry I can't keep up. All children are different and so far, all four of our children have needed us to change things a bit here and there when it comes to training them to use the toilet. With Jane in the beginning, she would not go pee for me, only for Scott and Elisabeth. In some ways this was a blessing because I could just say, "she won't go for me so I guess you're(Scott) going to have to train her." and that's pretty much what happened. We decided that Scott's week off from work to help me after baby Nora was born would also be the perfect time to work with Jane on potty training. That way one of us could always be home with her during the week and we could help each other out more. And it worked! Jane is now day-time potty trained when it comes to pee, though we're still working on the poop thing. She won't go poop in the toilet. We've had other children do the same thing. Hopefully she'll come around soon.
I think she's only had one pee accident this week and that's when we were outside weeding the garden after we'd finished a long walk. I should've taken her inside after our walk to try to pee, but the thought never entered my mind. When we put her down for a nap, to bed at night, or if we have to run several errands we'll put a diaper or pull-up on her but so far this week, when we take it off, it's always dry...so we're re-using them :). That would sure be nice if I didn't have to buy diapers for her anymore. Here are a couple of pictures of Jane with her 'treats', 100% Juice Capri Sun and Carob Chips.
