What time, you ask?
Potty training time.
(If these kinds of posts weird you out, feel free to check back later. But I gotta keep it real, folks.)
For the past few months, my 20 month old daughter has been alerting us to her, ahem, movements, showing major interest in all things potty-related, and likes to be alone, to, ahem ahem, do her business.
These are signs of readiness, right?
BELIEVE ME. I am SO NOT READY to do this. For some reason, the thought of potty training scares me into almost denial. (Surely it'd be okay for her to wear diapers to high school, right? You mean Luv's doesn't make size 22??) Maybe it is the thought of hours spent crouched in the bathroom with my toddler while having to nurse my newborn on the side of the tub. Maybe it is the absolute craziness that will ensue when I'm out running errands with said toddler and newborn, and the toddler needs to use the bathroom 50 times. What do I do with my newborn baby? Where do I put her? Will we make it there in time? What do I DOOOOOO!?!?!??!
So, I need your help. What worked for you in this arena? Potty chair or top-o-potty seat? (See, I don't even know what they're CALLED!). Stickers, candy, potty dance for reward? What do I do when we aren't at home? Pull-ups at night, panties during the day? Let her run naked for a week?
OH, the options!
My stomach hurts.
Okay. Seriously. Help a Mama out.
I'm going back into denial until the holidays are over. And then...
...then it's time.
