We have been struggling with the whole #2 potty training thing....But we have decided to push along anyways in getting rid of the diapers, since she does so good with the whole #1 thing. She has actually been waking up in the morning dry, which as anyone knows is a huge progress.
Ella and I made a 'Potty Board'. You've probably heard of this tactic. It is a calendar of sorts that Ella and I decorated and hung in the bathroom. Every time she does pee pee's in the toilet, she gets to pick a sticker. And when she does poopies, she gets a big Tinkerbell sticker. Plus, when she does poopies she calls my mom and my mom will give her a little surprise next time we see her (which we usually see her daily and its something small from the dollar store). She is really responding well to the whole sticker thing. As a matter of fact, she has been going into the bathroom to do pee pee's without even telling us!
She still doesn't like to do #2's.....I think it is one of those childhood fear things about losing something of herself or the way it makes her feel, but we have gotten rid of the diapers (hopefully once and for all, unless we have another baby that is).
This morning, she woke up, peeked into my room and said, "Good morning Mama!", then she went directly to the bathroom. Its such a wonderful noise to hear her go to the bathroom and flush the toilet all by herself. Sounds silly, I know. But there are alot of silly accomplishments we get excited about when we are Mommy's.
