My Kid Potty Trained Herself...What Did Yours Do?

So, Bree is potty training herself. I'm kind of glad that I'm not having to force it on her anything, but it's also kind of sad. I think I'm going to miss changing diapers once she gets the hang of things. Although she doesn't tell me every time she was to "pee pee", she is going by herself, on average, 3 times a day. I guess that's pretty good. I did, however, get a little discouraged this morning when she proceeded to take a poop in the living room floor. Either she waited too late to go, and couldn't do anything about it...or she just didn't care. I'm not sure which, but I scooped her up and ran her toward the potty so that she could finish the rest of her business. She sure has grown up fast though, and even though I love the little girl she is becoming...I miss the little baby she was. I don't know very many babies that can successfully climb up onto the potty like Bree can. If that's not sign that she is growing up, I don't know what is!

That is too funny.

You are BEYOND lucky. Potty training our oldest was like trying to perform open heart surgery on a jackhammer. Then again, he is a boy.

It's always a little sad though when you can really tell they are growing up.

I hear that boys are harder to potty train? I don't know, I've only had Bree, but she has always wanted to do stuff on her own...and act older. She is always watching what I am doing, an then copying it all.

I had said from the start that the way I was going to potty train her was by letting her go to the bathroom with me. Apparently that worked.

I personally think that God knows that I could possibly snap at any moment, so He's making things easier on me :)

You're so lucky! I remember when my parents tried to potty train my younger sister... not pretty.
