i am throwing in the towel (again).5 pairs of beloved elmo undies in less than 3 hours, is that some kind of record? we were pumped when the day started. ivy slept in so it gave vz and i some one-on-one time to talk about the potty and watch our newest netflix blockbuster hit "elmo's potty time." i thought she was ready, she knows just what to do. if you ask her and she tells you about keeping elmo dry, going shi-shi and poop in the potty, saying "mommy potty" and run into the bathroom, and so on. but when it comes to actually doing it, it's another story. it does not even phase her to pee herself and she does not even stop or think about telling me. multiple times she went and sat on the potty for long periods of time to try to go, we talked, we sang, once pooped (which she has no problem doing on the potty) and then no more then 5 minutes after she got off the potty she went pee in the living room (three times). sigh. and i was really diligent this time around and asked her often, i have explained things and have been really calm and cool about it. i thought i was doing so well. so i guess we put them away again for another week and see what happens next time. am i giving up too easy? i know it takes time, but this just seems like it is pointless right now and i am sick of clean up. should i keep on it? velz has always been on her own time table with things like this (think no crawing and late talking) so i wonder if she is just not ready.
anyways, off to the beach so she can pee all over whatever she wants and i don't have to worry about it. and i really am sorry, i don't mean to rub in the fact that it has been beautiful around here the last week.
