The time has come...

...for the the fun part of being a parent "Potty Training", as one would call it.

They started Amy's potty training last week Wednesday. I had to go out and get extra panties to put into her school bag. We have had many accidents, but it is only the beginning, poor thing, must be very daunting on her...and this does take time, we don't want to scare her away from the whole idea on day 1. Amy's teacher, Vanessa suggested we get her a seat that fits into the toilet, as that would be easier for training with, as when you go out in public or to friends they don't always have a potty. It also creates more work for us, first the potty then onto the big toilet, so we are going the toilet route from the start.

As for the progress over the week:

  • Had a lot of wet panties and pants.
  • The one day she decided not to wee at all and just keep it in.
  • She is also starting to tell us when she wants to wee or poo-poo, but when we put her on the toilet, nothing happens, otherwise she has done it already.

So all in all, I think we are doing pretty well for a start to this, she stills sleeps with nappies, as that will take a while before we can master that one...

Yesterday, being 1st March "Voting Day", my brother, Chris and his wife, Mary-Anne invited us to go to Ushaka Marine World with them for the day. Murray did not come, as he had a bad tummy bug of late. Got to see the dolphin and seal show, which Amy thoroughly enjoyed. We have decided the next time we go, we will take the kids to the water rides etc, as we saw some parents with young kids swimming around there.

I have decided to take on Rhonna Farrer's 21 Day Challenge...

"It is your habit. You are responsible for changing it. You must work...to get better. Do not get frustrated, it takes a lot of time.
