I know Mary is still a little young but she understands the concept of having to go potty so I have been trying to encourage potty training.
Here is a common conversation between us:
Mary: “go pee pee.”
Me: “You gotta go pee pee?”
Mary: “Yep! Go pee pee!”
So we make a mad dash to the toilet, and then she’ll just sit there. She won’t let it go. I can tell that she is trying to hold it once she’s on the pot. This has been going on for some time now. Well…last night she is sitting..and sitting…and sitting, when suddenly, after a few short grunts, she did #2 in the potty! Matt and I went crazy! We celebrated like we had won the powerball lottery. I yelled at Matt to go get her a treat. He comes back with a fortune cookie. And no kidding, this is what it said, “on attachment: the tighter you squeeze, the less you have.” We just thought it was too funny!
