Okay so my daughter turned 2 last Sunday and we've been working on potty training since around 18 months. She goes on it...when she feels like it and has pooped on it several times. Right now it's sitting in our living room, just like any other toy.
On Saturday night she was naked from the waist down and when prompted, sat on it and peed. We were super excited, danced, and ate a piece of chocolate (the natural reward for peeing on the potty lol). She loves to carry it to the big potty and say "bye bye peepee".
Sunday she wore a diaper because it was just a fluke. Sunday night she was naked from the waist down again and declared at dinner that she had peed in her chair (she hadn't). She my husband grabbed her and we ran to the potty, where she peed like a champ. More chocolate, dancing, bye bye peepee and the like.
This morning it's Veteran's Day (thank you, wonderful husband of mine for you 25 yrs in the Navy, btw) so I'm home from work (bank is closed) and I kept Caitlyn home with me.
When she got up I took her diaper off and decided to let her go bottomless just to see what happens. The first time she peed was aftr breakfast when we were playing legos. The second time she peed, Mickey was on and I was in the kitchen washing dishes. She didn't even tell me, just went and went back to playing. When I came in to check on her I saw it in the potty and we danced and did the whole routine.
THE THIRD TIME SHE PEED I ABOUT DIED. She just got up and went. Looked at me with that devilish look on her face and said "peepee Momma" and I was like HELL YEAH PEEPEE MOMMA!!
So now I'm pumped. She's done this with no prompting from me and is doing GREAT. What I'm worried about is tomorrow, when I have to send her to daycare as usual. She's naked right now, but ...naked doesn't fly at daycare. How on earth can I keep this going? Should I put pants on her later so that she can tell me? Or should we adopt dresses and real underwear fora couple of days to get the swing of things??
I didn't expect this to happen so fast!
