“Poopy,” comes the muttered comment while Sunshine plays, or maybe it’s yelled from her bedroom, or just asked quietly while she’s walking through the living room. I pounce, saying, “Potty? You need to go potty?” and usher her off to the bathroom to peel off her diaper and plunk her onto her potty. Sometimes my question is met with protests that she really didn’t mean “poopy” when she said “poopy,” but usually when she sits, she goes.
Still in Diapers
We’re still keeping Sunshine in diapers, but for the most part she’s potty trained at home and at Grandma’s. Grandma also has a potty and at Grandma’s, Sunshine can sometimes watch her older cousins use the potty—more incentive to use it herself. And just as Sunshine seemed to pop out teeth without any problems, she’s also seemed to pick up potty training fairly quickly.
