Princess in Potty Training Chapter 5: A Princess and Her Pee Are Not Easily Parted

Well, I'm happy to report that we are in full potty training mode over here and A is doing a bit better than I had expected, that said, we have a longggg way to go! Things I've learned this week while in training:

*Even if you lead a Princess to Potty every 15 minutes faithfully all day and limit beverage intake they will still pee on your floor a few times just for good measure.

*Toddlers figure out that if they just go a little bit on the potty you'll believe they went and then they'll pee on the floor 5 seconds later...

*A will sit on the potty 500 hundred times a day and all for 1 skittle--it's kind of amazing the power of the candy bribe.

*Contrary to popular opinion, girls CAN pee up...I learned this one the hard way.

I sincerely believe that potty training is like boot camp for Mommy(s)--I'll keep you posted to let ya'll know if I survive!
