Is My House Too Cold??

The past few days Emma has been wearing her winter hat and gloves in the house. She keeps talking about wearing them in the snow. Surely it's not that cold in our house! But then again, I am pregnant. :) Oh and check out her new fall outfit. I bought her some jeans and fall shirts back in the summer and I finally got around to washing them all over the weekend. I figured within another month she might need some long sleeves so we are ready!

She kept saying "mommy it is so bright!" talking about the camera flash.

As for the whole potty thing today has been not good. This girl can hold her pee pee for hours and I mean hours. Sometimes she will say she has to go and does and sometimes she will say she has to go, sit on the potty, hop down, and then go pee pee on the floor. That's the most frustrating thing b/c she knows good and well when she has to go. I just don't understand. Then she will laugh. AAAAAHHHH! Yes, it drives me bonkers. She is playing games with me I believe and raising my blood pressure. So far we are on day 5 of panties and I'm just not sure what to do. I don't want to go back to pull ups but how do I truly know if she's ready? Sometimes she loves to go and others she just refuses. Any advice? Just knowing she understands when she has to go makes me think I should keep pushing the potty but I'm sick and tired of smelling urine. This has got to be the hardest part of parenting so far. Anyone want to volunteer to come train her for me? I'll pay you. Seriously. :)

Hi..I was reading your last post with regards to potty training. I would say if she is going potty some what in the big girl potty then I wouldn't switch back to pull ups. It is confusion and then it seems you have to start back over with training.

I've have 4 children and I just potty trained my 3rd. I bought them some underwear and for the first few days we LITERALLY went to the restroom every 30 minutes. Boy did we wear out the carpet BUT after a few days it was an hour in between visits..and then it came to be where they would tell me and go on their own (with me standing to the side).

Every child is different as some switch over earlier in age and others later.

~You could also try a treat reward for her going w/out accidents or sticker on the wall board.

I hope this might give you a little comfort!!
