Josi turns 3 in 2 weeks and she isn't potty trained. Fine. She's so stubborn that I figured I might as well wait until she's ready. Ready or not, I was planning on potty training her in August, AFTER my two separate 2 week road trips. That way I don't have to stop every few minutes during my long drives.
But she woke up acting like she was ready. Grrr what was I thinking?! So I committed! She peed on the toilet a few times. Peed on the ground a few times. Super frustrating. I did the old "hose her off outside" that worked so well with Owen. And right when I was about to lose hope, I said a prayer. And then my hope was restored when she RAN up from downstairs two times in a row to pee in the toilet. I felt like it was a real answer to my prayer. I felt like I could do it.
But then I had to put her down for a nap. And go get my hair done. So I put her in a pull-up. She took a good nap and saturated that sucker. When she woke up she bawled because she didn't want underwear. She wanted another pull-up. So I had to fight her on it. And then she had two more accidents. No successful pees in the toilet before bed. So I just put her in a real diaper and put her to bed. No more pull-ups for naps. It's underwear or diapers.
But can I do this??!!! I want to quit and try again in August. But I know she can do it. And I hate to give up once I start something. Especially something like potty training. It took Kate and Owen each two days to potty train so I'm hoping for the same with joslyn. What do I do?!!
In the meanwhile, I went and got a haircut and highlights. The last time I got highlights done was when Joslyn was born and I had to go to my 10 year reunion! My hair was so long and dark that I felt it made me look really drab. Anyway, I just needed new life.
The funny thing is, she totally cut my hair Samantha via 1999/2000. Even when she was styling it, she pulled out the flat iron, found it had been unplugged, and then pulled out the curling iron and curled my ends under! Heavens. I think I like the highlights. I think I look better than I did before, but dang, I wish she would've cut it like I asked her to. I'm going to wash it and see how it dries tomorrow before I decide if I need to fix it or not. I just don't like the bottom layer cut so bluntly.
That's it. Here's to sticking to it tomorrow. It's hard because I don't necessarily even want her potty trained, unless she's going to be awesome at it like my first two were. Here's hoping.
