Day 44: Oct. 18, 2013
I have to figure out why my daughter refuses to pee. The past few days, she's been a mule in this category of life. She won't pee even though she bounces around holding her crotch. Then she'll wet her pants a little and is happy to remain soiled for eternity.
When my son was six months old, and she was two and a half, I pushed the potty training. I didn't let it happen organically, which is probably why she is the way she is. And I can go weeks with out a stern word then I just pop. GO PEE! FOR GOODNESS SAKES!
And she has red dots on her butt from wearing wet underwear most of the time. The problem is that I know what I have to do, and I'm just not sure I can. I have to keep my mouth shut. If I notice wet pants, we'll change them pleasantly and move on. This will pass. She will catch up to my two and a half year old son who is 100% potty trained without me ever saying one word about it.
At least its Friday and the two of them are playing "ship" in her room together.
Coffee: Making some right now! Found one of my favorite mugs, so that's good.
