Potty Training, Day 5

     On Monday we started the daunting task of potty-training our independent 2 year old... By Tuesday evening, I was *this close* to shoving diapers back on her... Our method (this time around) is a fairly simple one- Amber wears nothing but real underwear and sits on the potty every twenty minutes.  We are attempting this for two weeks.  Needless to say, the first two days had crushed our confidence and sanity.
   Wednesday she finally peed in her potty chair (she was sitting on it during breakfast & had her underwear on, but hey-its a start)...not once, but twice! Yay!  After this, we've been letting her run around "commando" so we can "catch" when she starts to pee...
   Day 4 didn't go so well....more pee ended up on the floor than in the potty chair....
   Day 5 (today-Friday) she woke up dry (no changing bed sheets!) & by 6pm has successfully gone on the potty chair 3 times today (2 of those times were half&half-half in, half out)!  After her nap, I rushed her to the potty, but it was too late...and she only had one more accident today!
   After all these little victories, my hope has been renewed, and we shall see how well she is doing by next week!
