Potty War III

Mom is conducting another campaign to get Alice potty trained. She’s been resistant, although I think Mom has worn her down to making mostly pro forma objections to the potty. Alice has been using the potty, if she is on it. Like Charles, she doesn’t seem to have any forewarning, which is odd because she frequently manages to use the potty right after sitting.

As part of this campaign, Mom is letting Alice wear underwear. Alice originally objected very strongly to this, laying naked upstairs screaming that she wanted a “die-pee!”. But now Alice likes her underwear. The only problem is that, presumably because of how diapers work, she expects to open a brand new pair of underwear everytime after she uses the potty. She sometimes claims to need to go to the potty so that she can get a new pair. Other times she’ll claim that she peed in her underwear to get changed.

It should be a fun week for Alice. No more Erica, back to daycare, and potty training.

Alice had two accident in about 45 minutes yesterday, along with peeing on the potty in between the two accidents. That’s some bladder she’s got. The worst part is that Poly treats Alice messes like a spilled drink, which is not only a bit off-putting but leaves lots of Poly paw prints to be be cleaned up.

Sounds like an interesting time at your house.

I found out today that Poly likes the other variety of Alice waste product. I had just brought Alice home from daycare, asking her if she needed to use the potty. “No, I OK” was the reply. So I left her to go make some lemonade. In the middle of that I hear some scuffling in the other room. When I investigate, Alice has pooped her pants, taken them off with the expected result, and Poly is chowing down. I had to lock Poly in the bathroom to even get started on the cleanup.
