Potty Training Sucks!

I am getting so close to being diaper free I can' see the light at the end of the tunnel. Or can I?
I have successfully potty trained 3 daughters, you would think #4 would be a breeze. Not so much.

She just turned three and seems to be ready to go. She sits on the little potty when I go. She goes through the motions and even asks to wear underwear to be like her big sisters. She refuses to wear pull ups but she will wear diapers. She loves wearing underware. The  only problem with that is that she pees in it and doesn't care!

Underware has always been my last attempt to get the other three to go. Typically the child is mortified when they pee on themselves and the floor. Nope, not my girl! I am really at a loss right now. She is my exception to the rules. I have no idea where to go from here.




  1. LOL! I relate!

    I recently potty trained my third child. And I've come to the conclusion..that no two are the same....They do this just to get us bent out of

    I say as long as you get the job done before kindergarten=you're in biz!

  2. Beats me what the secret is. It's been way too long for me to remember. I hope she gets it together shortly so you can be diaper free.

    Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

  3. I have a friend that tried everything and the only thing her son is responding to is being allowed to run around the house's working for him. If only there were one sure-fire way (we're probably starting on my second son soon and I'm not looking forward to it!).

  4. She definitely looks like she has a mind of her own....but dont worry....I have never seen a bride walk down the aisle wearing diapers....this too shall pass....I survived 5 potty trainings myself... :)

  5. My third son was difficult to train too. What finally worked for him was a reward sticker chart. When he went to the bathroom a certain number of times in a row with no accidents, he would earn a small prize, like something from the dollar store.
