We started Day 1 as a normal day! I took Jocelyn to gymnastics as we always do! But this time, when it was over, we went to Target. We had been telling Jocelyn all week this day was coming. She was very excited. Even though we had gotten undies from Grandma Davis and Grandma E already we had her pick out one more pair on that day to make it offical! She picked Minnie Mouse ones (at first she wanted the Mickey ones but they were the boy ones! Had to approach that subject gently!) I also had her pick out her favorite candy! Which of course was chocolate (we did reeses pb cups and hersery kisses! We also picked up juice boxes and a few other snack cookies! It was such a fun trip that was specifically just for her! She loved it!
Then home we went to potty train!
At first she didn't want to put her big girl undies on! It took a few minutes of convincing! But she finally did! I then set the timer on my phone for 10 minutes and off we went to play! When the 10 minutes were up we came back to the potty to try and "go"! But she didn't have to! So back we went to playing. She had 3 accidents at the beginning. I noticed we were missing it by about 3 minutes. So I pushed my timer to 13 minutes! FINALLY! She "went" in the potty!! After that she never had another accident all day!! I was so proud of her! She went #2 as well! I was shocked at how well it was going!
By the end of the day she didn't even want candy when she "went"! Ha! All candied out I guess!
By Day 4 Jocelyn told me, "Mommy I go by myself! You stay here!" When she had to go potty! Oh ok then! Day 2 she had a dry diaper after her 2.5 hr nap! Then Day 3 mommy was so tired I forgot to even put a diaper on her after our crazy morning! But she still didn't have any accident at naptime after 2.5hrs!
Day 5 was back to daycare where Lori would pick up from there! Jocelyn didn't have any accidents in her new enviornment and went potty with no problems at Lori's too! BUT she did make sure I brought candy to Lori's since she said she wasn't sure Lori had any! Cracks me up!
Dare I say Potty Training was WAYY better than I thought it was going to be!! But from what I hear my boy will be much harder to train! Thankfully I have 2 years before I have to tackle this all again!!
Ok off to make sure I know where every bathroom is in all the stores we frequent!
