It’s been a while since I’ve given a potty training update, so I wanted to fill you in on where we are after 3 months of potty training! Well, I’m pleased to say it was a breeze. She did absolutely fabulous and I’m really impressed with how well she rocked that potty.
Yes, the first week was ROUGH. But that’s totally expected. Jessi was 23 months old when we started full on potty training, and she was completely ready. Check out more on the first week: Day One, Day Two & Day Three.
Accidents happened a lot over that first month. A lot. And they would be in the strangest places. TWICE she peed straight into the floor air vents. TWICE. I was dreading the day we had to turn on the a/c, afraid the house would be filled with a lovely scent (thankfully that didn’t happen). She figured out that if she would pee while in timeout, it would rescue her from timeout. Or so she thought. Little did she know it meant she had to sit in her own pee until it was time to get up And I can’t even count the number of times she went in her high chair. One day she sat on one of my favorite pillows and made that the potty. Needless to say that went straight into the trash.
Unfortunately she still hasn’t learned that the potty is yucky and it’s not a place to play. I caught her here just a few days ago. Just playing in the water. Y-U-C-K.
Once we got over the hump of random accidents, it was pretty smooth sailing! She rarely has accidents any more, and her naptime diapers are typically dry. We’ve been staying in diapers while in bed because we aren’t quite ready to worry about nighttime training.
Overall, potty training was pretty easy and fun with Jessi! I’m so proud of her and how well she’s done! Potty trained before she turned two was my goal and she did it!!!
