Sorry, no other way to say it.
Well, there are a few others, but this is a family-friendly blog :)
Maeve, my sweets, woke up this morning, on a mission. She wanted to wear her "Little Mermaid" panties. I was thinking, "THANK YOU JESUS! TODAY IS THE DAY!! SHE'S SICK OF DIAPERS!"
For those of you not residing in antartica (aka Michigan), its freezing. Like can't feel your toes, whipping winds, cold to your bones freezing. The only good that could come of this weather, is being stuck in the house for a few days, thus creating a perfect enviornment for potty training. Or so I thought?
Maeve does awesome with peeing. She's a champ. She has dribbles here and there, but for the most part, when she's wearing her undies, she makes it to the potty. She was doing great all morning, running to and from the bathroom, so proud to show me her "pee pees."
It was after lunch, that I noticed she had been MIA for too long. I went back in her bedroom and she was lying down on all her stuffed animals. This is a FACT: Whenever you walk into a room, and your child says "I not do anything," they did something.
I faintly smelled poop. And saw that she was fully clothed. No big deal. This chick poops her pants all the time. And then I peeled her pants off.
She had taken OFF her panties, put ON leggings, and pooped. Yes, she pooped directly INTO the pants.
I tried to clean her up without gagging. I failed. She felt awful. She actually said to me, "Mama you won't laugh, okay?"
After cleaning her, the pants, the bath & shower, & the few unfortunate stuffed animals that got uhh... pooed on, I put her down for a nap.
I then spent my entire 30 minutes (yeah that's all I got today) crying because my child could quite possibly be in depends at the age of 13.
In all reality (and I'm hoping depends at 13 is not my reality) WHAT DO I DO??? This kid WILL NOT poop on the toilet. And 50% of the time she isn't even wanting to pee on the potty. She is 3 years old, she's in size FIVE diapers, its time for this to be done!
Any....annnnnnnnnnny advice would be grand.
