Proud

This week’s word has to be proud doesn’t it? What else? I would have never thought I would have got so excited over my child’s excrement in my life but you do eh?

You may have read Monday’s postΒ where I alluded to us having a good first day with the gremlin on the potty on Sunday. I thought we had taken a back step on Monday at nursery; she had accidents and didn’t use their potty at all. However, as soon as I got her home, with a gentle bit of reminding she was back on it and had no issues at all. I guess that sensation of having a piddle needs to get stamped in their little minds a bit.

Tuesday was a much better day. I picked her up to good news; no accidents and no problems. No poops though!!

Wednesday came along; our day together. We stayed in all morning and were fine. I then had to make the decision of going out in nappies or pants. Hubby thought I was taking a massive risk in pants. We had no pull ups either. I thought sod it! Let’s do it. Armed with fresh clothes, we headed into Solihull. I knew my girly needed a drink and she necked her little cup of decaf tea in the car on the way over. Slight panic but I knew we had some time. After about an hour, I was waiting for my turn in the post office, armed with some opened envelopes that I’d not paid for(!) and the gremlin announced she needed to go. At first I thought she was telling me she had wet herself but no! With the lovely permission of a member of staff to just go and come back and pay for my stolen goods; we headed into BHS and the disabled loo. Cue mild panic as there is obviously no potty in sight!! The gremlin was awesome and just used the toilet. We got home without a peep.

That evening came and she upped her game even more. Going into the toilet, not once but twice, she managed to go for a number 2! Cue party time. I had been promising the gremlin she could go to Toys R Us and choose a toy if she succeeded with the poops and she wanted to go at that moment, at 6.30pm. Luckily, she could be pacified to go on Saturday with hubby. Her memory!

I am so unbelievably proud of her. She had refused to use the potty for months but yet had the strongest bladder control, so I knew she would nail it when the time was right. I just didn’t think she ever would do it!

She is thrilled and so are we!! Let’s hope it continues.

    Oh the memories this brought back! It’s the worst aspect of parenting IMHO, my son was a nightmare and I remember lying on the bathroom floor in tears as he seemed determined not to get it! Well done you for handling it so much better than I did πŸ˜‰

    I think they just have to decide that they are ready. Frustrating if it doesn’t happen on our timetable. Keeping my fingers crossed for you

    Hi Sarah, you are right to be proud, your little girl has done well. My son was a little slow in learning to use the potty, but as a wise person once asked me ”how many adults do I know who wear nappies?”. All children will learn to use the potty or toilet when they are good and ready to, and it sounds as if yours is finally there.

    Lol a good job it wasn’t midnight when she wanted to go to the shop. My little one year old has seen her potty but I’m not letting her start using it just yet. #WotW

    It’s funny how, now as parents, we get so very excited over our children’s bodily functions – and the lack of them sometimes! We’ve all been there. I took a photo of my boy’s first potty wee and emailed it to Hubby whilst he was at work, that’s how excited I was! lol !
    I hope it all goes as well next week
