Potty Training Journey : Numero Dos

It’s a milestone that I look forward to and at the same time, it stresses me out. Potty training.  My son is almost five years old so, of course, I’ve been down this road before. The problem is, I don’t remember a whole lot about it. Did I just block it out? Maybe. LOL!

Well, now it’s time to head down this road again. My daughter turned two over the summer and we’ve been taking steps towards potty training her. My sweet girl has her own ideas about potty training – and everything else. I mean, this is the girl who sports sunglasses to her art class.

We started the potty training journey at home and then his day care took it from there. I didn’t have to worry about running around during the day for errands and drop off/pick up with him. With our daughter, now that I’m at home, we seem to always be on the go. I’m not looking forward to not getting to the potty in time while we’re out and having the whole back seat soaked. We have a travel potty in the car to help with this, but still.

I decided to give Pull Up’s a try. My thought is that we can still carry on with potty training without having the anxiety about possible accidents. Here’s how we’re setting the stage for potty training success around here!

Her big brother likes Jake, so she likes him too. The next pack she’ll be rocking will be Doc McStuffins! icon wink Potty Training Journey : Numero Dos

  • Our plan of action so far has been to keep the potty handy. Wherever we are in the house, it goes where we go. Gotta keep it near because you never really know when the feeling will strike.
  • We have a Huggies potty training DVD that my daughter has watched a few times. She likes to remind me “I’m a big kid now!”
  • I want to make it fun so sometimes we sing songs while she’s going.
  • We celebrate big time she she actually makes it to the potty in time.
  • We also have a potty book that I’ve read to her a few times. Sometimes she looks at it or other books while she’s on the potty.

I am looking forward to getting through this stage. It’s still kind of sad though because she’s our last baby. When each stage ends with her, it’s bittersweet. I’ll be happy to not carry a diaper bag though. I hardly EVER carry a purse. So yeah, that will be a perk of potty training success!

We’re enrolled in the Big Kid Academy to help in our journey. The Big Kid Academy offers personalized potty training advice based on what stage we’re in on your potty training journey. There are also tips and advice from the experts (other parents and medical professionals). The “My Pull-Ups®” page is gets my daughter involved with potty training activities. It’s a great resource.

I’m So Guilty…

Tweet The wheels started turning. My husband and I were watching a movie/browsing the web and he mentioned an article he’d seen about the habits of wealthy people. The article talked about how they don’t watch much TV and they NEVER watch reality shows. That’s pretty much where I zoned out. I told him to…

Foodie or Nah?

Tweet Never would I go as far as calling myself a foodie. I do like food though. There are a million restaurants in Los Angeles that I want to try. I think if I had a bit more time on my hands, I’d be a food snob. I’m kind of fascinated by yummy and creative…

Blogging + Brunching

Tweet There’s something to be said for being a part of this blog life. It’s unlike anything else. It’s like a club of sorts. You can look up members of this club wherever you may travel. No matter where you go, you probably know a blogger there. So why not set up some bloggy dates?…

Things I want to Learn

Tweet Do you have a list? I have a list of 40 things I want to do before I turn the big FOUR OH. I’ve been slowly checking things off the list. I still have lots to do though. Oh well, I still have a couple years to pull this off! Mostly  my list is…

Happy New Year – to ME!

Tweet Today, I’m feeling reflective. I’m taking stock of my life and where things are headed. Today is my birthday, my Happy New Year! So instead of being all introspective come January 1st, I decided to start early. This last year has been quite a crazy one for me. The biggest thing had to be…

What I’m Feeling Friday… Vans

Tweet I’ve noticed a disturbing trend. When I post something I like on this site, I end up buying it. That’s the exact opposite of my whole “minimalism, get rid of stuff” mantra. My solution is I’m going through my closet to actually let go of some items. I have already gone through the kids…

Full Circle Moment : On the way to my dreams

Tweet This weekend, I met up with a friend. We worked at the Style Network together. We used to always talk about what we really wanted to do. I’d encourage her to go for her dreams and she’d do the same for me. It was in talking to her and other people in the office…

No Pics Leaked Here

Tweet For the last few weeks, I’ve been reading and hearing all about nude pictures leaking of lots of celebrities. Seems like everyone has jumped on the sexting train. Not I. No pics leaked here. I could just be a granny about it all but I think about where that picture would go as it…

You’ve Been Blogging Too Long When…

Tweet This whole thing started for me around 2008. That’s when I started blogging and it became my vice. I was hooked. I started with a beauty and fashion blog. I tried my hand at a celeb site too. Once I became a mama, that all changed. I wanted to connect with other moms. My…
