This is a Princess on a potty.
I bet you can't tell she's on the potty. That's because Princesses are very discreet when going potty...or not going as the case may be!
Really, this blog is a cry for help or words of potty training wisdom because I'm in over my head! This little Princess loves to sit on the potty--no really she does! She will sit on the potty all day! Every morning I've been getting her up and sitting her on the potty--I mean REALLY sitting her on the potty. She sat on the potty for over 2 hours each day this week after waking up from a 12 hour sleep with a dry diaper (I don't even know how this is humanly possible--after a 12 hour sleep I can't even look at a potty without wanting to go--but maybe that's just me).
Anyways, dear reader, you may ask, "Does she use the potty?"
She doesn't....Princess A is content to sit on the potty for hours without going, will ask for a diaper (or will be put in one just because we have to go out of the house), will help me fasten it (this is really what pushes me over the edge), goes in it and then hands it back and sits on the potty.
And no amount of Barbie skates and treasure boxes filled with Princess Paraphernalia or skittles will tempt her to go in the right place...
Now, I know it's possible for her to go because she was going everyday when she about 2 years old and then wanted to stop one day so I let her thinking--she'll really want to use the potty by the time she turns about 3...ha!
We'll continue to try each day until we break her resolve and until then--many tales to follow!
