Today is Amber's first day wearing big girl panties. She has been doing so well I just decided it was time to make the switch. It has been a work in progress getting her to today. The first time I tried putting her in panties I thought we would try cold turkey potty training. Just put her in panties and see if she could figure it out. After two day and hours of sitting on the potty we were 0/15 so we (J*) decided to give it a few weeks and try again. Then Amber started telling me when she was going pee pee or right after she had. So I knew that now she at least was aware that she was going. Then one day she came back from her friends Sydney's** house and she had gone on her potty. Nothing like a little competition and bribery. She was so excited she had done it and had gotten a sucker that she came home and tried once or twice without success. A few days later she started asking to go again and was actually going. That was about two weeks ago. She has had a couple of not so good days but for the most part has gone pee pee all day. What really made up my mind about putting on the panties was her going poop on the potty the last two days. So whoot whoot for Amber and being a big girl.
Here are recent pictures of my cute girls.
*J decided that I needed a break after I took out my frustrations on the wall. No worries—I didn't put a hole in it or anything. And believe me, he isn't going to ever let me live it down. I should have kept my mouth shut.
**Thanks Caralee I am glad you let her try:)
