And that basically sums it up. I don’t know WHAT I thought it would be, but it isn’t. I thought as a mother I would KNOW what to do. And EVERY Mom does it differently…which was a huge bummer because I want to know EXACTLY what to do. There are no set rules and really no way to know how your child is going to react in this situation.YET you still meet Moms that tell you their way is the only way. We tried that way and it caused a CRAZY amount of fear in Gooner towards the potty. Great. So much fear, that we had to abandon that potty for the time being and get a new one. And wait a few more weeks.
And I know that everyone tells you to just DO what you KNOW to do because YOU know YOUR kid best. Ha, YAH, but I don’t know about THIS! Is your kid ready, is she not? Boy, it about made me crazy. So here we are in Texas, buying big girl panties, without ANY potty chair and making it work. My Mom’s advice has been the best so far. She told me what she did. Told me what I could do. And then she let me do it. And shoot we put those panties on and she seemed to know what was going on. (I’m open for tips! and advice!)
To change the subject completely; we have Internet again! For two days we had no blogs, facebook, email… And I don’t pay to have that stuff on my phone… Anyway, there’s a lot to catch up on! And I missed you guys!
