Miss L is on the brink of an important milestone. Soon she will be out of diapers and into cartoon-covered underwear. I’ve been looking forward to this day forever, but why does it have to be so HARD?!
All the signs are there. She tells us when she needs to go (and then promptly does–in her diaper). She hates, hates, hates having a wet diaper. She can pull her pants up and down (which she does even when she doesn’t have to go potty). She likes to sit on the potty. She likes to watch me sit on the potty and is very curious about the whole process.
But. She just won’t go. I mean, the girl can seriously hold her fluids. It doesn’t matter how many juice boxes I give her, or how many pretzels, she just won’t pee. We spent five hours sitting on the potty every five minutes. Nothing. By that time, it was time for her nap so we put her in a diaper. She promptly peed like a racehorse.
I think that once she pees in the potty for the first time, everything will click (RIGHT?!) and after that it will be easy-peasy. So how the heck do I get her to pee?
