Potty Training Meltdown....

Ok....So this post is late at getting up....Thanks to the wonderful Internet providers in Pullman, I swear the Internet goes down a few times a week....Good thing I have been tasked by Nana to find some newer or different service.....so anyway on to Thursday....

So Miss Lila has finally begun to sleep through the night again....she will cry out around 2.30 am but not to eat....she just needs a 2 sec back rub and she drifts off again....then she is up again at 5.oo am for some eating....and then back down again until 8ish...so nice for me to have some sane time in the morning to work out and drink some coffee and catch up on some gossip......

The girls wanted to start potty training again....they were doing great all morning....sitting on the potty and earning colored circle stickers for their potty charts and 1 M & M....(They get a cooler sticker and 6 M&M's. 1 of each color when the go)....All was good until Lovely Kiara started to do the potty dance....I am like "You got to go, lets go!".....She was like "NO I don't have to go".....and I said "Well you are doing the potty dance..."....So I picked her up and we headed into the bathroom....Total big mistake on my part.....she started screaming and kicking...."NOOO Mommy, NOOOOO!"....Holy cow....it sounded like bloody murder....."I want my Pull up"......"Kiara, you have to go potty, just try"....."NOOO Mommy...NO"...."I don't want to sit on the potty"....Still screaming "Put MY Pull Up ON!, NOW MOMMY".....UGH.....I was like "you do it, you know how, I have seen you".....still screaming "NOOOO YOU DO IT".....This went on for I don't know a good 10-15 min.....I did finally end up helping her put her pull up on.....she quit potty training for the day and said she would try again tomorrow (I am thinking she is not ready yet).....we shall see....I swear I am going to have 3 year old kids in Pull-ups....Kiara is definitely my really strong headed and screaming one....drives me so crazy....to the point I have to walk away.....Mikiah on the other hand did pretty well.....trying many many times....I will let you know how tomorrow goes....

Oh, I still have some of those moments Kaelee! If we're doing something fun, Darby will be doing a pee dance and having to physically hold in her pee before she will go. And I know lots of 3 year olds still in Pull-ups! Hope today, Friday, went better!
