I did it! This is my second morning waking up "dry" overnight! I wow'ed my parents by how fast I learned to use the toilet. As promised, they're buying me a ticket to see the castle [Disneyland] for all my hard work. Woo hoo!!!

Here I am with my potty training chart marking the last "day left" to the castle!

Almost there!

I impressed my parents by using the facilities this entire week for #1, and as of yesterday, even #2! We haven't started to tackle the night time yet, but I am incredibly proud of me!

Night waking and bedtime battles

I used to sleep like a charm, 12 hours straight without a peep, but recently I've been waking up in the middle of the night screaming, "Save me!!". My parents come see me and I grasp their hand and don't want them to leave until I fall back asleep. I started asking them if Bad Man was coming, and they have to reassure me I'm safe. I told them I didn't like the room dark, so they put a night light in my room. I never want to go to sleep either. I try to do everything in my power to stall bedtime; and I'd rather have quiet time than take a nap. My parents wonder if I am losing the nap, but then I often wind up passing out in the late afternoon if I don't, so they concluded that I'd rather fight sleep than miss all the fun. Or, all this toilet learning is putting my sleep out of wack.

I had my first "dry" day today! After making my parents sit in the bathroom with me for two hours before actually doing the deed, Mommy got frustrated and decided to just put me in training pants and let me sink or swim. Well, two accidents were all I needed! Later that evening, I asked Mommy to go pee while we had friends over for dinner. Mommy rolled her eyes because she thought I just wanted to hide away from our guests and watch DVDs in the bathroom. But when I urinated seconds after I sat down, Mommy was totally floored! She was so excited for me! And the next day I stayed completely dry, saving all the stars on my Dora pullups! [Stars fade when pullups are wet.] Mommy says that the more stars I save, the more wishes I can make on the stars, and the more wishes I make for going to the castle [Disneyland], the more likely it will come true!

A for effort

My parents are really trying to push my toilet learning these days. I rarely "performed" when they tried several months ago so they stopped, thinking I wasn't ready. But at school I like to sit on it of my own accord, so they decided that I was ready to try again. Although they thought I seemed disinterested for a long time, perhaps they didn't entice me with the right incentives! They have now up the ante and are bribing me with M&Ms (which I discovered on Halloween), ice cream, yummy smoothy juices, all-you-can-watch DVDs, Cinderella, You-Tube videos (specifically "Yellow Submarine"), and a trip to a castle [Disneyland] if I sit and learn to use this thing! So now I can't wait to sit on it! Only thing is, I haven't connected the action to the equipment yet, and still nothing happens as I sit for a long time. But instead of getting up and coming back, I WILL NOT get up until it happens! I want to go to the castle!!! So I've made my parents stay with me in the bathroom for up to two hours before the deed is done. This is after they try to pump me up with liquids. My parents can't believe how much bladder control I have.

Bleah, but don't ask me about #2!
