See that girl? Yeah - the one obviously about to get into trouble, and the one saying "oops!" She has become our crazy, fun loving, and spirited child. She's into everything, has an ear-piercing scream, and knows what she wants and most often times, how to get it. Usually I am fascinated by her determination and love her crazy ways. But, when it comes to potty training - I just might want to laugh and give up.
Today she has decided her Elmo panties are for peeing in. She sits on the toilet for about 5 minutes reciting her alphabet, counting, and singing some made up songs of hers. It's a joyous time in that bathroom of hers! But, when she's done singing she gets up, declares "I all done," pulls up her panties and runs full speed ahead - down the stairs, into the kitchen or dining room. Then, 2 seconds later runs to me and says, "uh-oh mamma, I go potty my panties." I reply, "Seriously, Maejae!" She laughs, I grit my teeth, and the battle to potty train continues . . .
