....Moving three times in 6 years, to two different countries, three different places where we didn't know anyone....away from everyone and everything I knew. I've endured my husband going through medical school and now the start of residency, both keeping him away from us most hours of the day. I've even moved to a new country with a two week old, but potty training....
is by FAR the worst thing so far. Seriously.
I hate everything about it.
I know not everyone goes through it as long and hard as this, actually most don't.
But I'm the lucky one that has a daughter who could not be bothered to do it.
One day it'll be all pee and even a poop in the potty, the next day...ALL in the underwear/diaper.
I can't seem to get ahead with it. She still screams if I try to do the 'set her on the potty every 20 minutes' thing, saying she's scared.
Then I feel awful, that I'm torturing her some how.
And then there's the fact that she's over three years old. Now I know you are not supposed to compare your child to others, and most days I don't. But I can't help but think that she's going to be that kid going to kindergarten in diapers.
What's hard is she's such a clever kid. And I know that she gets the potty training thing, she just doesn't care.
I've tried everything.
I guess all I can do is keep with it and pray one day it clicks.
I have to give myself grace in this situation and Aubrey too. We just moved and Daddy is at work a lot. I know that's a lot for a three year old to handle and I would not have started the potty training if she had not initiated it. But she did, handed me underwear on day and asked to wear them, and off we went.....that was a month ago and there has been progress, just very little.
All I ask is that you please, please not tell me your child was potty trained in a week, even a day(heard that before) because I might just scream.
