Potty training. Funtimes.

Well this has been such an eye opening experience for me. Potty training has been probably the hardest thing in the world to try and do for my 18 month child. Or is he 19 months? He is a year old. Let’s leave it at that. I have had no coffee yet.

The doctor told me she wants him potty trained now. And God knows I have been trying. But he just doesn’t want to do it. I feel like I am in a time limit and I hate that. I feel like I have to have him potty trained by his next appointment or else doom will fall upon me. But these are things you can not rush right? Right! If the boy isn’t ready he isn’t ready. That is what I feel and I wonder if I am wrong. Once again it becomes a well this child is and your’s isn’t what is your problem mom? I don’t know.

I didn’t know I had one. And is it my fault, horrible mom skills, or make my son less than if he isn’t potty trained at 19 months?
I don’t know but he will do it when he is ready. And I can only encourage him and help.
He did sit on it on his own. I am trying to still get him used to this evil contraption. So, for the sake of science, I put the potty just in the living room as a chair. And today he finally sat on it! For a minute only. But, a minute is a milestone here and I’ll take it.
