Potty Training Day 4!

Another GREAT DAY!!! :)

Venily woke up crying and came into our bedroom at 1:30am this morning saying she had to go!! Of course she was half asleep, so even when I took her into the bathroom we didn't get any where. Her diaper was wet though, so I changed her and she went back asleep and then woke up again at 7:30 WITH A DRY DIAPER!!! YAY!! Then immediately said she had to poop this morning and went on the big toilet (I don't know why, but she prefers to poop on the real toilet- fine with me, less to clean!). Then she took it upon herself this morning to go sit on her potty when she had to go and went!! We then went to yoga and my mom's and I asked her a couple of times while we were out if she had to go and she said no. We got home and she was DRY again!!! Then took it upon herself to pee and poop in her potty while I was making lunch, just like it was no big deal! She just says "YAY!!! POOP!!!" and only asked for a cookie once today after she went- so pretty soon, no more bribing! She is DOING SO WELL!!!!

Woke up from her nap dry! Then pooped in her potty (with out me saying anything!)! We played outside and came back in later and the whole time... NO ACCIDENTS!!!! She knows when she has to go, runs to her potty sometimes saying "Hurry... hurry!" and then just goes!!

I am SHOCKED at how easy she is making this for me!! I was absolutely dreading it, I bought carpet cleaner and a carpet scrubber, was prepared to wash a million loads of laundry and was afraid she'd go all over our couches and stuff, etc. But she has only had 2 or 3 minor accidents this entire time and they all ended up making it to the potty anyways!!!! I am using 1-2 diapers a day instead of like 8-9, no changing diapers, my garbage doesn't make me GAG every time I open it.... I am LOVING it!! Of course the real test will be how she does out of the house with no diaper on, but I think she is going to do pretty well!

I may actually have a few months of NO diapers before we start this process all over again! :)


  1. I can't believe she is doing so well, and she is not even 2 yet!! Do you want to come potty train my triplets?? I am TOTALLY not looking forward to it!

  2. HAHA! Sorry, but no thanks! One is all I can handle!! :)
