Over five years of kids in diapers in our house, and we’re finally done. Santa left some potty related items under the Christmas tree and we thought the holidays would be a great time to get her interested. Dan is home from work for two weeks, we’re stuck mostly indoors because of chilly weather and a plethora of toys, so selfishly WE decided it was the right time.
She took well to it. Not right away, but after some persistent persuasion she complied. A few “Frozen” jelly beans may have helped a bit. After day three, we could put her on the potty and ask her to go and she would try. She’s still working on going poop on the potty, but she’s got the peepee down! We can take her to the gym or anywhere out and about, and she’s good to go for the most part.
After years of kiddos in cloth diapers it feels strange to not be using cloth, and to leave the house without diapers! It seems like my sweet baby girl is growing up so fast, and has turned into a big girl overnight. I’m so proud of her for mastering this milestone! She’s one amazing girl!
