Adventures in Potty Training

Reese is still having trouble going "#2" on the potty. She HATES it! Sunday was her last time going and I promised her a cupcake if she went...she finally did at bathtime...and we still gave her the cupcake. A promise is a promise. Today - Friday - she finally went again...in her undies. We had lunch at CFA and ran in to some other friends there too. So all four of our kids were in the play area. Reese was the only one in the play structure and I just had a feeling she was doing something she wasn't supposed to be doing. I called up to her and told her she better no go potty in her Princess panties. She came down a few minutes later and I could smell her...#2 in her panties. How gross! That is not a fun cleanup! And those panties got thrown away!!! I don't know how to get her comfortable enough to go on the potty. At home I never let her be alone because I need to see when she gets "that look". Since she was alone and it was quiet she took that opportunity to go. What to do, what to do?

Besides #2, Reese is doing great with going tee-tee in the potty! Most of the time she doesn't even ask for M&Ms afterwards (we made the switch now that she is doing so well). I am so proud of her! And am so glad to have a break from diapers for a couple of months!!

OH we went through this too and it was SO frustrating for me. All I can say is keep encouraging her because eventually she WILL go in the potty when she's ready.
