Potty training! Need I say more?

We have been attempting potty training, need I say less? I am sure most have you have either gone through this or know someone who has. In my case I know very few people who have as most of my friends kids are my daughters age.  At first I had no idea where to start, so I did what I do when I am clueless. I research, I've been reading article after article trying to find the best method or at least one that most people find successful. I have read about potty wrist watches, potty books, songs, just letting them be free and so much more. After all of this research my head is spinning and I had to take a Tylenol (lol). Needless to say, we are amateurs and need help...

Over the past month or so we have had some silly moment.

Chloe got stuck in a toilet

And even though we try a few times a day I rarely get her interested for more than a few minutes or actually using the toilet.  At this point in my life I feel like a diaper changing machine. Our trash cans are overflowing and I am always re-ordering more diapers it seems. Sometimes the kids like to play jokes on me and I'll have to change 4 diapers in a row (with just 2 kids). Needless to say, I am so completely over having two babies in diapers. My Chloe bug just turned 2 years old and it's time to get her out of them and into big girl undies.

So if ANYONE out there has some ideas or could tell me what worked best for them I would greatly appreciate it!

  1. Haha this made me laugh out loud literally. I am in the same boat. I have a 2 year old and a 4 month old - I am soooo over diapers. We've introduced the potty, we have the one that goes on the toilet and the little chair one.

    I have zero advice - I just wanted you to know that you're not alone. Oliver my oldest is interested until something else comes to mind then he's off again. I have heard great things about just letting them go in under wear and taking them to the potty every 15 minutes or so. We have been doing that. It works alright but he has yet to go. He has special bathroom toys and books he's only allowed to play with/look at while he's on the potty. IF he would just GO - I want to throw a party and do the potty dance. Then maybe he would see how cool it is.

    Whoa - so I have written a book - but yeah, good luck! lol.

    Your little girl is adorable by the way!!

    1. Thanks girl! Its so nice to hear I am not the only one going through this. I have heard about the "just let them be free" and would love to try that when I am out of school and can constantly be on her heels so she doesnt pee or poo on our furniture.
