Potty training Davis has been a challenge, as I'm sure it is with just about any child. But now there is no training, there is just potty. We have come to a complete stand still in the potty training world, and I'm sure now that he'll be 6 before he decides it's his time again. When we moved to Houston, we were sure not to pack his little potty and have it ready to go. We set it in his bathroom, and went along as we had been. Davis was always extremely excited when he went, and would have to run across the room to show either myself or Michael his achievement. He was sitting no problem, going no problem, and even telling me when he had to go. Well, I guess I put a damper in things, and still not quite sure what happened over here. I bought Pull-Ups. Are Pull-Ups the dreaded Pull-Ups? Should you not buy these dang things? Because now I believe they are the devil. As soon as Davis saw a 'cars' figure on them, he got so excited, so of course I did, too. I was thinking, yes, we are going to conquer this potty training battle, and show it who's boss! Yes, I even explained they were 'big boy diapers' and he still had to tell me when he had to go. Nope, no go. As soon as he put those awful things one, we are back to the very beginning. And unlike what Fraulein Maria thinks, now the beginning is not a very good place to start.
I read recently there are lice cleaners. These people come over to your house, clean your child's head, clothes, toys, etc. and you don't have to worry about a thing. Now this has my wheels turning. Is there a potty training, trainer? Can Super Nanny come over for dinner and slide in tips for potty training?
Getting this child to even sit on the dang potty now is a stretch. He screams like he's being beaten. I even try and bribe with a treat, and that still doesn't work. Oh, me oh, my. What was even better was recently getting potty training advice from a young 20 something that doesn't even have kids. Wait. What the?!? Are you kidding me right now? No, no my child. Go back to the loud bars, and I'll go back to the loud toddler.
So, I'm pleading for help. Maybe begging for it. Groveling! Serenity, now! Surely this is a normal thing in little boys. Davis is as stubborn as they get, thanks to yours truly, so I hate to say I expect it. If anyone, (and yes, I'm being totally serious) has ANY advice for me, I would LOVE IT. The starting over again part, isn't working to well for me.
FYI, we move again to our house next month. Has anyone had experience with this setting children back?
Thanks, everyone! Have a wonderful day!
