Ahhh, potty training.
Where do I even begin with this subject?
I read somewhere that girls potty train early so even before Roo turned two I bought her her first potty. A hard plastic pink thing from IKEA that didn't cost more than $4.And when we got home and she immediately sat on it (with clothes), I literally jumped up and down while clapping my hands.
I must have scared her because she didn't sit on it again for months.
On her second birthday, she got a really pretty potty with a soft, squishy seat and again, she was curious but nothing concrete. Sometimes she would sit on it but sometimes she would cry if I dared asked if she wanted to sit on it.
After more reading, I heard about bribing your kiddo to sit on the potty and bought M&Ms to encourage her.
I gave one to her once, now all day long she's running to the potty shouting "M&Ms!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Not that she's done anything on that potty but look totally cute naked and scarfed down way too many M&Ms.
I'm just going to give her time, but like I've said before, she'll go when she's ready.
