Tales from the Toilet: Potty Training Day 4

I really don’t know how much longer I am going to be doing these daily posts.  One of my friends has already referred to my blog as “your potty blog” so that might be a sign that I may have to tone it down a bit. : )

Anyway…today’s word is Frustration.  My girl she is a stubborn one and one that has no problem poopin’ on Dora (or whatever else character she has on her underwear).  She did that not once, not twice, but, yeah, three time’s (a lady — not really).

We did leave the house today and had no accidents while running a couple errands.  So there’s that.  Perhaps C will be one of those kids that has no problem when she is at school (in the way of accidents, etc.) but at home will be another story.  Or she could be like Miss M, who I swear only pees twice a day.  Bladder of steel, that girl.

It has been a long day and I’m tired.  But I have not given up.  I can be just as stubborn as my little friend C can be.  I have been given good advice from a couple good, trustworthy friends and I intend to use those tactics tomorrow.  No more iPad on the potty.  No more asking “do you have to go potty?”

Frustrated but resolute.


  1. I can’t imagine how frustrating this must be, so if it helps you to write about it, I say go for it. No one is required to read about it if they don’t want to 🙂

    Not having any children, I have no personal advice… my mom always say that you can tell when children are ready to be potty trained when they start waking up dry in the morning. I remember when my cousin was training her daughter (only because my mom had surgery and my cousin kept me company at the hospital…) Anyway, she would take her daughter to the bathroom… if she didn’t go, she took her back every 10 minutes until she went (of course, you’ve got to have a lot of “free” time to be able to do this, I suppose) and I have no idea how long she waited for the next potty break if her daughter did indeed go.

    I’m sorry you’re having so a rough go of it and that it works out soon!
