Potty training....

So I think the time has come. And I have no idea what I am doing.....

Sophie knows what the potty is for, but as of yet hasn't used it, she got it out this morning saying 'doo' (poo). So off came her nappy again - she sits on the potty, then gets up and wanders off. Shes been doing this for days now. I'm not sure it has anything to do with her wanting to use the potty, more her current dislike of wearing clothes (who needs clothes!). Shes currently taking off her t-shirt too.

She has on a few occasions had a wee or poo without the nappy on (never on the potty or toilet though) and has got so upset and worked up over it. I'm really not sure she is ready, but when shes asking for the potty, I can hardly say no - luckily I have a carpet cleaner!

For the first time in a long time I feel like I did when she first came home - totally out of my depth - I'd not even thought too much about potty training, maybe that's because of my total denial that I no longer have a baby, but a toddler! And once shes out of nappies, there will be no denying that she really is growing up - I don't think I'm ready for that.

So I am currently sat watching my baby toddler wandering round the lounge in nothing but a pair of socks wishing that time would slow down, while trying to figure out if she really is ready for the potty!


  1. She'll let you know when she's ready x

  2. She will let you know when she is ready. I am in the same predicament with Cameron at the moment, he just wont use the potty. Need to really make a start on it soon, seen as he is 3 next month.
