Long story short, we have been potty training. Not claiming victory by any means. Emily is in panties all day and a pull up at night. Two mornings she woke up dry....because she woke up at 1 am telling me she needed to pee and another time because she peed 25 times before bed.
Here's my issue. The lightbulb went off in her head. "If I tell Mommy that I have to pee, I can get out of my bed." 5 times in a half hour. Right after I put her to bed. First two nights I put her on the potty the first 2 or 3 times. Little turkey peed just a bit each time. Last time she just sat there while I banged my head on the wall. Finally I ended up threatening taking away her friend that she was sleeping with. I feel like such a craptacular mommy. This goes on with naps too.
Tonight I did take the friend away. I eventually gave it back when I went to check on her to make sure she was covered up.
I have no idea what the h*ll I am doing. Seriously. How do you handle this situation? I don't want her to be resigned to peeing in her pull up or worse- her panties at naptime- but I don't know what to do. I don't want her thinking she can cry wolf all the time. I feel like such a loser. Argh!!!
