I HATE POTTY TRAINING!
There. I said it. I hate potty training! I see no reason the kid can't wear diapers forever. He's perfectly happy in them. I can live with changing him....ok maybe there's a purpose for potty training.
But it's frustrating. We can't go anywhere because we sit on the potty every 20-30 minutes. And he sits there for 5-10 minutes. I read a story (and another and another and another). I feed Squirt his bottle while sitting on the big toilet.
We've had no more than 2 episodes of success in a day (yesterday). The most frustrating thing is when we just got off the toilet and he goes to the living room or kitchen (wherever) and pees on the floor. Why couldn't he have done that a minute beforehand?
I honestly don't know that he understands. He can't answer questions (well) so when I ask him, "where do you need to put your pee-pee and poopie?" many times he says, "ummmm...." He isn't as upset as you would think when he has an accident.
The most frustrating thing is hearing how easy potty training is for others. How long does potty training take? Am I jumping the gun with my frustrations? I know we're only on Day 4 but I don't know how long it's supposed to take. A friend of ours from church said she did it in a week with her kids (and they were just over 2).
My worst fear is that I'm forcing him to do this when he's not ready. He doesn't communicate well enough for me to know one way or another. He does well sitting on the potty most of the time but sometimes he wants up after 2 minutes or so.
Am I the only one who has no idea what she's doing? Am I the only mom who gets frustrated and confused?
