But i have also been trying to potty train this kid. She is 3 1/2 now. And i think she should be able to handle this. She starts Montessori on Sept 2nd, and she "has" to be potty trained, or atleast mostly trained.
Catie will remove her diaper and pee on my carpet, she will remove a dirty diaper and ground it into my carpet, and she will pee on things like pillows and teddy bears. So, i am thinking it is potty training time.
GRRRRR. This kid... i have tried pull ups. I have tried panties with all different characters on them. I have tried yorks peppermint patties (her favorite), i have tried fruit snacks, i have tried bribing her with computer time, i have tried telling her she can call Daddy at work on the phone. Nothing works. We hang out in the bathroom for 30 minutes at a time, only for her to get up and go into the living room and pee in front of the television.
I have TWO weeks to get this kid potty trained, or atleast where she can ACT potty trained for 3 hours out of the day. I am soooo frustrated, i don't know what else to do. We have physically showed her how to use the potty, myself, my husband, even the neighbors 4 year old daughter. She knows all the words, she uses them, and she can physically go through the motions. But she has never actually GONE in the potty.
HELP!!!! I have a 75 dollar retainer that we will lose if she isnt trained in 2 weeks. Anyone else have any ideas? It is obvious i don't want to spank, i don't want this to be a megative experience. But we live in an apartment with new carpet, and i have a 1500.00 couch i have now had to scrub BMs out of. ANY help would GREATLY be apprectiated.
I am exhausted, and being pregnant, my patience is already shot with walking her in there every 20 minutes only to sit on the floor for 30 minutes, only to spend the following 10 minutes scrubbing furniture and carpets.
