We are still working on Annalise being potty-trained. I had given up for awhile simply because it wasn't working for her (or anyone else in the house) and because I am not the least bit worried over other kids her age and younger being potty-trained before she is. I will not compare my child to other people's children and do not like her being compared either!
Today we got up and started with underpants right away. Pull-ups do not work, look ridiculous and do not make potty-training any easier. Cotton underpants look so much more cute. So far it is almost 11:30 am and we've had two pee-pee accidents as well as two successes. I'm rewarding her with fruit snacks candy since that is something I wouldn't normally have for the kids to eat on any occasion. It's a little challenging trying to potty-train her the right way where she has my full attention to help with the whole process, helping her on and off the toilet seat, wiping, and washing our hands after poop or peeing. This is mainly because Hudson is around getting into things and still wanting to nurse alot. I was nursing Hudson earlier when Annalise told me she had to potty. I told her to go upstairs and try to sit on the toilet herself. She went upstairs and a few minutes later I see a whole roll of toilet paper being thrown and unraveled down the stairs. We clean that up as well as the pee-pee on the floor, all while trying to keep Hudson out of the accident. I am helping Annalise get dressed in her room when I hear Hudson reaching inside and splashing toilet water in the toilet. I gather him up and bring him to the sink right away to wash hands and then change his shirt since his sleeves were in the toilet water. I wonder if I will have another load of laundry to do after just one day.
