"Potty training is NOT for the faint of heart"-Angie Jorgensen
If they ever do shut down Guantanamo, I have an alternative form of torture. Take suspects and stick them in a room full of potty training toddlers. I believe it is cruel and unusual punishment :) The constant whining, tantrums and crying is enough to get anyone begging for mercy.
All jokes aside. Day two was NOT so much fun. I encountered a little boy who no longer thought it was cool and fun to go to the potty. And boy did I see his defiant side. I don't know which was worse, addressing the constant accidents or addressing the constant resistance. There were many dark moments where I contemplated throwing in the towel. After spending a moment praying, I recalled the success from the day before and was encouraged to keep going. I also remembered even though this is hard, it is a great opportunity to work on character and heart issues (both his and mine!).
On a positive note (the one and only) he succeeded in going #2 in the potty. I remember that was a BIG deal when we trained Jacob. He just wouldn't do it. So I was glad that Austin was already comfortable relieving himself.
Well...here's hoping day 3 is much, much, much better!
