Arden vs. The Potty--Round 1
Round one goes to Arden. She is a stubborn girl and has completely refused to have anything to do with the potty. Occasionally, she will sit on it for a millisecond and then jump off, proudly proclaiming, "I did it! I did it!" Um, not exactly.
Arden's current strategy of potty training avoidance involves shifting the blame.
Me:Arden, are you stinky?
Arden (wide-eyed innocence): No, sissy.
Me: Sissy is not stinky. She goes on the potty.
Me: Daddy is at work. It's not Daddy.
Arden: Cow poop.
Efforts to shame her into going on the potty have failed as well.
Me: Arden, big girls go on the potty.
Me: Sissy goes on the potty.
Me: Yes, Daddy goes on the potty.
Me: Yes, Mommy goes on the potty.
Me: Yes, Nana goes on the potty.
Me: Yes, Grandad goes on the potty.
Me: Yes, Grandma goes on the potty.
Me: Yes, she does.
Arden: No! No No Maw-Maw potty.
Round one may go to Arden, but we're not out of the fight yet. I do have a bad feeling I may be buying one of those musical potties soon though.
