Potty training success

It's official. Little Miss Anna is potty trained!

Do you remember all the dilemmas I had trying to get her trained. I even tried using the Baby Signs® Potty Training Complete Starter Kit, but my inconsistency and her stubbornness hindered the success. It's funny because she still loves the book reading the book and doing the potty training sign language and she still loves watching the DVD.

Every once in awhile she has an accident during the day (more at daycare than here) or pees on herself during the night, but she tells me when she needs to go (often with a lot of false alarms) and even tells her siblings. Every time I put a disposable training pant on her at nap or bedtime she wakes up dry, but if I don't she wets herself. So I guess that would make us about 99 percent successful.

Well, it's more like that makes her 99 percent successful because we wouldn't have the training success if she didn't get it into her mind that she was going to start using the potty.

Good luck to everyone who is still in the training process or those who haven't reached it yet. And, if you're already pass it: Isn't it great not to have to spend money on training pants and diapers? That's a big relief!
