Potty Training Update

It has been one week since I started potty training! Feels like.. 3 or 4. It has been so hard! The first few days were the hardest. Then, at the suggestion of my sister Patti, I decided to train one at a time. Brandon constantly had accidents and never ran to the potty. I will train Brandon once Faith is trained and I don't have to worry about a toddler peeing all over the house while I am working with the other toddler in the bathroom!
I think Faith has been doing very well. I only put diapers on her during sleep time and any time we leave the house. Of course she has had some accidents, but she says "oh no!" and runs to the potty. Many times, she goes before having an accident:) Of course I have her sit on the potty every 45 min or so, but she also tells me when she has to go sometimes too. There have been times when she was into playing and then she has an accident. The most frustrating thing is when she goes potty and finishes, then goes again and again on the floor. I think she doesn't finish completely and then goes again just minutes later. I am not totally neglecting Brandon. If he wants to hang out in the bathroom with us, I have him take off his diaper and sit on the little potty. 2 days ago we did this and when he stood up, there was poopy and pee pee!! YAY! I was so excited. It has been hard on me though.. it takes longer to do any task. We ate dinner 40 minutes late last night because I had to tend to Faith so much! It will all be worth it soon. I can't wait to see where we are next week!

Good job, it will probably be less stressful now. Keep up the good work and let me know how it is going. Good luck, twins are hard, but you are doing FANTASTIC Peg!!! I love you. And Yeah, come with me to Vegas, I'll put you in my suit case. LOL!!!

Faith will be potty trained quickly! I think she gets it! And Brandon will not be far behind. Did you read my email about not trying to make too many changes while the twins are pre-school age? :-)
