Kiddos are like that.
Just when you think you know what to expect and how it's all gonna unfold they go ahead and surprise you!
Anyone remember this series of posts with the boy child? It took a little over a week, and he picks things up quickly.
I was hoping folks wouldn't judge me that we waited so long till potty training her (and thankfully nobody has!)
1-She was adamant about wearing diapers. Every time I would ask my darling little control-freak if she'd like to put (on or even look) at her big-girl underwear she'd holler at me, NO! DIAPER! MY DIAPER! So that was that for a long while. I didn't want to push it. At least we know who's running the show.
2-Her speech is still quite delayed, and her vocabulary is quite limited for her age. I wondered if she had it in her to tell me when she needed to go.
3-My own fear of failure. I'm fragile like that.
4-That whole realignment of the astrological signs! That's seems to have messed just about everything up!
5-I don't really have a fifth reason, but 5 sounded more legitimate than 4 reasons so I
I pulled her from preschool for 2 days giving me a 5 day window.
This sweet child who has always taken a little (or a lot) extra effort and training?
One of my easiest kiddos to potty train? (Second only to Sunny who took all of 10 minutes to potty train and jaded me for the next 15 years. Anyone wanna guess who took the longest at almost a year? I haven't been the same since.)
I mean I had been dreading doing this for over a year!
I assumed it was going to be another battle of the wills!
1 1/2 days, 1 accident, 1 bag on m&m's later, and poof... it was done!
I'm still shocked!
