I am Failing at Potty Training!

I am trying to potty train Katie. It isn't going so well!
I thought she was ready when she wanted to walk around the house with her pants down to her ankles. I was wrong, she just thinks it is funny to do, even in public places.

I have tried bribing with M&M's and she wants them, but won't even sit in the potty for them. Here is her little tantrum, which I find super funny, about wanting the candy, but not wanting to sit. At least she is polite saying "NO THANK YOU!"




This is the "STOP TAKING MY PICTURE" look! **haha**

Try potty training rewards It worked great for our son. He loved pushing the audio button hearing he is a Big
Boy and opening a door to find chocolate surprise. He really became involved. He was peeing and pooping in his potty within a week. Have a look and see if this would work for you. www.pottytrainingrewards.com

We're having a hard time w/PT here too. For some reason Cooper thinks 4 am is the best time for #2.

Oh boy....I sure don't miss those days lol. But isn't it fun when we can get a chuckle from our childrens misery...it kinda makes up for when they turn 13! I love the "no thank you" too cute...she is so polite when she's pissed! That will have me giggling all day!
Thanks for the b-day wishes...and yes cheerleader uniforms have changed...but this was the 70's in a Mormon community...and with fathers who INSISTED our knees shouldn't even show lol

We are right there with you. I have tried everything with Ethan. M&M's and stickers. Nothing is working. Hang in there. You are not alone.

oh my! I'm sorry I have to laugh at that last picture. It's hilarious!

You've potty trained 3 other kiddos, maybe she just wants to prove she's the "baby" :)
