Pottypalooza Day Three: Wrap-Up

It's been a long day and a really long weekend.

I'm starting to think that the people who go on and on about the 3-day plan are full of poo poo. We've not lost hope and we know that eventually she's going to "get it", but for us it wasn't in the three days. She didn't figure it out the pee cues.

However, we did use less panties today than we did either
of the previous two days. I think the full count was up to 5 for the day. So is that a success? Compared to 18 on Day 1, I'd say so... or maybe it's just a success that Mommy was trained better? Is it just semantics?

The only thing Baby really learned this weekend was that if she said "poo poo", then we'd run to the bathroom and she'd get one-on-one total attention. That's not entirely true - she learned that if she was sitting on the potty at the right time she'd also get stickers.

Yay! First poo poo success!

Tomorrow we're sending her to daycare with several extra pairs of clothes, 8 extra pairs of panties and 6 of the huge plastic panties to go over them. We've spoken to our daycare lady and they're game-on to continue the madness.

The Hater's closing thoughts: "Hell hath no fury like 3-day potty training."

He's just excited that Baby is going to daycare tomorrow when he gets to stay home and enjoy MLK day. I asked him if he wouldn't rather continue our forward momentum and keep her by himself for an unplanned Pottypalooza Day Four! He didn't think that was nearly as funny as I did.
