Uh, no thank you, mommy
I look down to see Nadia visibly straining.

Me: "Nadia, are you doing poo-poo?"

Nadia: *thinking face* "Yes, Mommy"

Me: "Let's go do it in the potty! Come on!"

Nadia: *holding her hand out in a "talk to the hand" gesture* "No thank you, Mommy."

I wouldn't mind if they weren't so hot and steamy...

*sigh*

I remember when I would babysit my niece and nephews and see them visibly straining ugh

I'd run, pick them up by the arms, drag them onto the toilet, and tear off their diaper thingies over the toilet.

I hate it when I try to do that and get the rim of the toilet in the process!

ICK!

My cat, Houdini, didn't make it all the way into the litter box this morning, so there was some lovely surprises on the box edge and the floor.

She really does have amazing manners for a two-year-old. *smile*

Audrey is much the same - you can sit her on the potty for half an hour and nothing.

Get her dressed, and two minutes later pooey nappy!

Grrrr!

Yeah, I don't have the patience to push the training right now.

Besides, with the gentle reminders and no pressure, Maya self-trained by 2 1/2. Nadia is only 2 years and 2 months...I'm hoping the same thing will happen with her.

We do the one jelly bean for pee and two for poop reward system. Worked like a charm with Maya!

Right now we have a card with windows she opens if she does anything on the potty...she's got 5 open so far.

Like the jelly bean idea though...
