Day 2 of the potty (I'm sure this is all very thrilling for my readers! Sorry, it's just a REALLY BIG event over here that I want to make sure and document, so I can realize how badly I screwed up the first time when I go to potty train Mary Ellen in a few years :).)
Anyways, Hattie went potty 3 times and also had 3 accidents today; all 3 accidents occurred while I was talking on the phone. I was encouraged by her accidents, though, because she only went a little bit before stopping herself and saying, "Oh no! I got tee-tee on the floor!" So I think she's getting it......
It's hard, though, and I'm exhausted. I already want to take a day off from the potty. By 10 a.m. I am so ready to just put a diaper on her and forget it, but I'm trying to stay patient. My question to the potty training veterans is: Is it okay to take a day off, or will that confuse her and ultimately cause her to back track?
I guess my Hattie Ruth is feeling like a big girl now or something, though, because she has started calling me "Mom" instead of "Mommy" or "Mama" this week. She's started saying things like, "Thanks, Mom!" or "What is this, Mom?" Two going on fifteen....it scares me!!!! I just don't know where she picks it up?!?!
