Today, in an impulsive move on my part, I changed Ada from her diaper to panties.
It is the understatement of the century to say that I am ready for her to be potty trained. So...she put the panties on. And very soon after, I hear a panicked voice and turn to see tee-tee trickling down her leg onto the floor.
I was not discouraged.
I simply picked her up and rinsed her off in the tub. I changed her panties, and I cleaned up the floor. And we discussed that next time she should tell me if she needs to go to the bathroom. She said okay, and we got on with the morning.
I continued to ask her if she needed to use the bathroom every ten minutes or so, and she continued to say no. Then, in a moment when I was upstairs "seeing about John," I heard the same panicked voice, and sure enough, another accident. Again, I picked her up, rinsed her off, and put clean panties on.
At this point, Ada told me that she wants to wear a diaper because panties are "too hard." I told her, no, you can do it, and we went over a list of all of her little friends who wear panties instead of diapers. She didn't care.
My question...am I going about this the right way? I just don't know what else to do. She really needs to use the potty. I am sick of changing her diaper. It's time, ya'll, it's time, to cross over to "big girl" land. Any advice? Please share.
