Potty training….still potty training.
Not only does this process, on my third time around, make me question my parental abilities, it makes me wonder who’s really in charge here.
I was told that girls would be easier, and so far that has proven to be an all out lie.
I’m supposed to be a pro at this by now. I know all the tricks. I know all the pitfalls. I know what to avoid.
You may remember back in September I even wrote an article for Circle of Moms with potty training tips. My very last tip, which I chose to ignore, was knowing when to quit. Well, I think after the new rhyme my daughter has been singing the last couple days, I’m ready to give it up for a while.
I don’t poop on the potty…I poop on my body!
I’m not a quitter, I’m really not, but I just don’t think she’s ready.
Just before I decided to call it quits, I did one final Google search. Maybe “the Google” found something new since I looked last, some technique I haven’t tried.
I scrolled down the results and on the last page I saw it.
No, really, Holy Crap. It’s the title of a post I wrote about some crazy potty training products (real & fictitious thank God). But there it was, Holy Crap, at the bottom of the first page of my search on Potty Training.
So now I know, not only is there no new information out there, but also probably not what most people are hoping to find when they search potty training.
My apologies to anyone looking for a real resource. All you’ll find here is another failed parenting attempt and a sweet, stinky baby singing songs about shitting her pants.
Feel free to leave me a comment with tips, although I probably won’t use it any time soon because I really quit for a bit. Are you in potty training hell too? Misery loves company, feel free to share your horror stories, you’re among friends!
