Ella has been consistently using the potty for the last several weeks. I usually have to remind her to go potty, but she always sits on the toilet and tinkles when I change her pull-up or diaper. She usually prefers to use the big toilet, instead of her toilet seat. She is fascinated with the potty and although I certainly don’t want to discourage her, at times I have to distract her to get her to leave the bathroom.
For the last two days, she has taken all her clothes off several times and run around the house buck naked. This morning while I was getting Aleck ready for preschool, Ella was running around naked and it dawned on me that she was unusually quiet. I took off running, in fear of a potty catastrophe. She was strolling out of the bathroom with a grin on her face from ear to ear. Sure enough, she had made it to the bathroom to have a BM on her potty. We spent the rest of the day in big girl panties. She had a few little accidents, but took off running to the bathroom when she realized she was tinkling.
We spent some time in the afternoon celebrating her huge accomplishments over a nice cup of tea. Girl bonding time…..gotta love it.
