Potty Training Diaries… DAY 2

I wasn’t kidding when I said day 2 would be harder than day 1!

It was my first full day to get E used to the potty and what a day it was. She still cried every time she had to sit on the potty. I felt so guilty because I didn’t want her to feel sad but at the same time I knew that I had to continue with it. 

I reminded her every 20 minutes about the potty again. She stayed in underwear pretty much most of the day. The first accident was at 11am. I left my husband in charge – this was clearly my first mistake! – and she had an accident on the floor. He said that she did half a wee on the floor and half on the sofa, so he still left her stick a star on the reward chart?!?! This is why men are not in charge of children. 

Second accident was on the sofa. I waited a whole hour with E, playing dolls, knowing she would need to go to the toilet soon. The second I was distracted, she came in the living room and had an accident on the sofa – sigh – 

Despite my constant reminders and sitting her down on the potty, she had another accident 2 hours later. 

It had been a very long day but there were a few lessons I had learnt. I noticed that she went for a wee every 2 hours after her morning wee. She definitely hates the potty so I may have to try the toilet instead and we actually managed to go out yesterday for 2 hours without any accidents! 

I wanted to give up so many times in the day. It was upsetting me and E and making both of us angry and agitated. I just have to remember that I need to stay positive, calm and encourage her, rather than get annoyed! 

Here’s to hoping we have a better day tomorrow!
