Erica - So sorry to hear about your Grandma. (((HUGS)))
Alyssa - Selin started showing interest in sitting on the potty right before her 2nd birthday but she didn't always "go". Then DH went out of the country and she totally regressed, then showed interest a month or so later. When I was home with her last summer we did the "no diaper/run naked" thing and that got her off to a good start. Almost six months later we are finally 100% diaper free during the day and she's only in a pull up at sleeptimes, though I'd like to get her out of a pull up for naps in case she does start preschool this fall.
I agree with Mari not to try to PT if there's a big event coming up. For example your trip in March, you might want to wait until you're back, or try now but don't stress if he regresses during the trip. Every child is ready in their own time and learns differently. We keep our bathroom door open for the most part at home (when it's just the 3 of us home of course!) so I think that really helped Selin get comfortable with sitting on the potty. GL!
We are still dealing with accidents from Jonah. He's 4 1/2 !!! It is so frustrating. Every time we visit PA or someone visits us he regresses. He was having no accidents at all, and then we returned to Florida in the second week of January, and suddenly he is having accidents almost daily...pee and poop. For the last three days, he has been completely clean and dry, and then today, poop accident again. I try really, really hard to not be angry since I know that this is a maturity issue not an issue of disobedience, but it is HARD to stay calm when he was doing so great, and he is so big. Anyway...that's my PT rant.
Erica - So sorry to hear youre still dealing with PT issues but it is helpful to know for stage rest of us. How long until your kids were nap and night trained? I can live with needing pull-ups for nighttime but I have to get Selin nap trained by August in time for preschool. Even if she goes on the potty right before nap she still wakes up with a wet pull-up.
Alyssa - LOL about the tub poop incident! When we were in Turkey in 2011 I was taking a bath with Selin at a relatives house and didn't have my glasses on and saw a dark object floating at the other end of the tub. Yep, it was poop! Luckily I had a bowl in the tub and was able to fish it out but it totally grossed me out!
Alyssa and Christine- LOL about the pooping in the tub!!!
Right now Julia is crawling, and since it's a very hot summer she's mostly just in diapers, wich means her knees, had and feet get extremely dirty, you should see her bath water!!!!
