So I’ve been considering potty training the girls for a while now. They’re always taking off their diapers and playing with the contents, so I figured why not give it a shot?
Well around 10 am today Mr. Thing and I stripped the girls down and let them run around the living room and kitchen in the nude. We brought the potty over to the living room, a couple of books they enjoy reading, and we watched them like a hawk; at least we attempted to.
I fed them their lunch and gave them a sippy of water around 11:00 in hopes of getting their bowels moving. We tried to get them to sit on the seat when we asked them to but no luck. The girls fussed and wriggled to get off of the seat. They would only sit on the potty when they wanted to. And you know what, every time they wanted to be on the seat they never did anything. Thing 1 actually peed right next to the seat and when I grabbed her to put her on the seat she stopped. I explained to her that “pee pee” goes in the “potty,” but no luck. Mr. Thing started to zone out and the girls started to get fussy. So we put them down for a nap, full clothed, and decided to try again when they woke up.
Two hours later:
