Potty Training

Today was the first day of potty training. First thing this morning I put her on the potty for twenty minutes and low and behold, she peed in the potty. We sang and danced & got ready to eat breakfast. About an hour after breakfast, I tried to get her to sit on the potty and she had very little interest. I took the potty in her room with her and turned the television on and she sat for about twenty minutes and got up without having done anything. About 30 minutes later she come running up to me babbling & I could smelled she was dirty. The way I figure it is every 1 hour and 1/2 I'll put her on the potty for at least 20 minutes.

I can hear her playing with the letter p in her babbling. I'm going to look up the sign language for potty. I have it on a paper somewhere. She's not really using many signs other than eat anymore. I know that's my fault by I love to listen to her babble and when we concentrate on signing she doesn't talk as much. She's been doing really good with the picture phonics though. I'm waiting for my battery's for my camera to charge up before I make a magnet with a picture of her on the potty. The other day she grabbed my hand and took me to the fridge, where all our magnets are located and pointed to cup. I opened the fridge and got a drink out and let her shut the door. She stood there looking for a second and pointed the Scottie lee's photo & send Daddy. I praised her on identify daddy, gave her the cup, & she ran off giggling.

WE'VE HAD ANOTHER SUCCESS! About four o'clock. She was with the memaw & papaw most of the afternoon. They tried around 1 o'clock and there was no luck. When she came home she at a snack & I sat her on the potty again. After about 5 mintues, she tinkled & hopped off the chair. We put another sticker on the chart.
