Potty Training Day 2

So we ended the day yesterday with one more accident and two more successes!

Day 2 has been very interesting! When Ella woke up, I'm pretty sure she had a dry diaper, which is great! However, when I tried to take off her PJ's and diaper, she got mad at me and laid back down, pushing me away :) Then she said "Mama Pee Pee!" So I said "Hurry let's take your clothes off!" But I was too late, her diaper was nice and warm. HA!

So we went on with our morning, eating breakfast, playing, etc. The hours past; 9:30, 10:00, 10:15... No pee pee or poopy! She has sat on the potty MANY times, but no go? She is holding it in! So I go for a different approach "Ella you have done so well by not having any accidents, her is a gummy for trying!" 10:25 Ok seriously, she has had drinks and food, why isn't she going? 10:30 "Ella if you go pee pee on the potty, I will give you a sucker!" She runs straight to the potty... SCORE! Yeah, not quite. She ends up getting so mad at me because she wants that sucker. After a small tantrum, she has a little leak. She caught herself and went to the potty! It took another 3 or 4 minutes to actually potty, but she did it! And it was a lot! Let me tell you, she really enjoyed that sucker.

So now it's nap time and I tried to re-enforce that when we get up from nap time, we will go pee pee in the potty! It has been a long day and a half, but that is to be expected. More pee pee talk to come...
