Sera did great with potty training over the weekend. I know it seems like we've been working on it forever. We have.
I started potty training in June when we were home. Sera was doing great, but then we left town for a month and potties weren't always very accessible.
The two weeks in between coming home and starting pre-school, I didn't focus on it too much. The potty was there. Sometimes she went, sometimes she didn't. I honestly thought that pre-school would kick it in for her when she saw the other kids going on the big girl potty.
She went potty once at pre-school, and refused every time afterwards.
Last weekend, we went pull-ups free except for sleeping. All panties, all the time, and Sera did great. We had a few accidents on Saturday, but none on Sunday.
We headed off to pre-school where we let her teacher know that if Sera went potty, she could have Dopey when we went home.
I stopped at the desk to pay while Jim headed down to her room. When I got there, her teacher told me that she had just gone potty. Jim had taken her when he got there because she had refused again all day. Since they change her every single time, she's been going through 4-5 pull-ups a day at pre-school. I really want her potty-trained!
She and Jim came out of the bathroom, and we all cheered and high-fived. She was so proud. Mrs. Naomi let her pick a sticker, and when we got home, she got Dopey. She was very excited.
Tuesday morning, she chose Bashful.
When I picked her up in the afternoon, she'd gone on the potty four times and tried two more times. Yay!!!!
Today, she chose Happy.
Now, I have two questions.
When should I switch her to panties for school? I guess I'll ask them because they'll be the ones dealing with accidents.
And...will I still be rewarding her for going potty when she goes to college?
