I don’t know what I am doing.
There I said it.
Potty training has been hands down the hardest thing I have done in parenting.
Not sleep training, not solid foods, not even childbirth was this hard. I kid you not.
At least then I got drugs to help me through. ( Yikes- little bit extreme)
I don’t know if Ethan is simply not ready or what the deal is.
Over Christmas we visited California and he was doing so well.
He was making huge strides and lots of progress and we could see the light at the end of the diaper tunnel!
Then we got home and it was like he had forgotten completely how to use the toilet.
He screams when we put him on there and will flat out refuse to go.
Yesterday he held his pee for 7 hours! S E V E N
F I N A L L Y he peed, just a small amount, but he did it.
I was so proud, we put a sticker on the chart and he got to pick out a candy!
Screams, refusal to pee and 2 accidents in 15 minutes.
As I put him down for his nap today, I took a deep breath and had to remind myself that he won’t be going off to college still using a pacifier ( another post) and he will be potty trained eventually.
I need to remember to breathe, ask for help, and buy my mother a plane ticket to come and do this for me.
Any tips … tricks … super nannies?
