Translated to: she just doesn't want to do it... PERIOD! I've tried the same techniques I used with her older sister but they aren't working. My oldest two girls are like night and day- complete opposites. Everything I learned from parenting my oldest girl, I had to re-learn, or rather I was taught by my 2nd daughter. She had a different way of doing things... different wants and needs, and she does things in her own time.
So the other day I attempted (yet again) to use the 'put 'em in big kid underwear' technique. I put a vinyl cover over the undies of course in case of accidents. What I wasn't ready for however, was that Curls would hold her pee... and hold it... and hold it. For 8 hours she held her pee, while I was pushing her to drink water and juice thinking I could get her to use the potty. But alas, she held it, every time I put her on the potty she just sat there... and sat there... and sat there! Until we were both exhausted and stressed and I finally gave in and put her back in a diaper. And then what did poor Curls do? She fell asleep before even eating her dinner and slept thru the whole night. :(
I guess we'll try again another day, or next week or even next month. I don't necessarily want a 3 year old still in diapers, but kids don't always do things the way we plan them. Better get to the store and pick up some more diapers, she's almost up to a size 5... oh, woe is me!
