Potty Training!

13 pairs of toddler panties size 2T (Minnie Mouse, Tangled and Yo Gabba Gabba), 4 potty books borrowed from the library, a pack of Target brand pull-ups, and glittery sticker incentives. All of this can only mean one thing....it's time to potty train!!!

I have been putting this off for long enough. Makenzie was ready for this about two months ago but I wasn't, and really still am not, but here we go anyway. To prepare for the real potty day we've been reading the potty books, we bought the panties together at Target, we've been talking a lot about going potty on the toilet and we've been taking Makenzie's Violet puppy to the potty.

Makenzie still goes potty on the toilet before her bath, just as she's been doing since she was 9 months old.

So this Friday begins our adventures in Potty Training. I read "The Potty Boot Camp" by Suzanne Riffel but wasn't a big fan of the "potty drills" that she uses when they have an accident so I think we're just gonna take a combo of several methods and try it out. We'll be focusing on potty training for three days straight, nothing else. We'll see how it goes! Pray for us!


  1. I am so curious to hear about your experience! She looks adorable on her potty. =)

  2. I admit, I have not been on this web page in a long time... however it was another joy to see It is such an important topic and ignored by so many, even professionals. I thank you to help making people more aware of possible issues. семинары в Украине
