Let me first start out by saying that this story isn't going to earn me any mother of the year awards. BUT, it will make you laugh!
I am not sure how to potty train Isabelle. I mean we have tried EVERYTHING. She cares nothing about going potty on the toilet and she can't be bribed. Candy, stickers, ice cream, all of it has failed to produce a child who wants to go in the toilet. Trying to tell her about all the big girls she knows that go in the potty also has not worked. She doesn't care that Abby, Caitlin, Grandma, Aunt Buh-Buh, Lauren and her mom all go in the toilet.
So I am just doing what I know to do. I sit with her, in the bathroom, whenever she says she has to go and wait for as long as she will. This has never resulted in success, but I figure if she wants to sit on the potty I am all for it.
But you see I have another child who demands my attention. What do you do with a one year old while you are sitting in the bathroom with your two year old for upwards of 45 minutes? Well, today the answer was, leave the bathroom to take care of her.
That's right, I left Isabelle alone in the bathroom sitting on her potty while I tended to Molly's diaper. This was the result.
