What An Adventure!

Following was our little journey to potty training which was filled with twists and turns, tears and laughter, rewards and toilet paper.

Update on Potty Trained Status

Mini Me truly is potty-trained. 

She is...
dry during naps
dry all day
dry in public
dry all through the night.
Mini Me is very good at telling us when she has to go potty. She likes to feel independent so I let her potty by herself. Her naughtiness in the bathroom is pretty non-existent. I keep an ear to her to make sure she is not playing with the soap or water.

EVERY TIME before we leave the house, I have both kids pee in the potty. When we are out, before heading back in the car, if we are somewhere with a clean restroom, I make the kids go. 

I have found that if I am diligent with taking her to the restroom in public, she is fine. 
The only times she has accidents is when an adult messes up by not planning for potty breaks. Or, if an adult says, "Do you need to go potty?" instead of "Let's go potty" when away from home. There are times she says she doesn't have to go, but I make her go anyway. She always delivers!

When we are on long road trips, I put both kids in pull-ups. This way, if we are nowhere near a stopping place when they say they have to pee, they can just pee in the pull-up. 

Motor Mouth, Mini Me's big brother is almost 6. He is still not dry at night. Sometimes, not even at nap time. I think I might start blogging on Motor Mouth's Adventures in Nighttime Dryness.

This is the end of my entries on Adventures in Potty Training Mini Me. She's done!!
