I know most parents are thrilled when their children start potty training but I don’t think I’m ready. Jasmine had her own little routine. I have no idea when she’s wet until I check her. Poop however is a different story. Before she makes a stinky as we call it, she wags her little fingers under her nose and sometimes she’ll even say stinky a long with that stinky wagging motion lol. The other night I was giving her a bath and she call me, then makes the stinky signal. I snatch her out of the tub and sit her on the toilet. It took her a minute but she made her stinky and I was proud of her. I wiped her toush and let her flush by herself . She was proud of herself. While sitting there lotioning her after her bath, I realized I wasn’t ready for her to be full blown potty trained. I mean I hate changing stinky diapers but, I’m so not ready for her to be that independant.
Is that selfish? I’m I weird? Lol. I just keep thinking about how fast she’s growing up. She’ll be 1yr and 5 months on Wednesday and I guess now is as good a time as any to start but I don’t know if I’m ready for that step. She already is done with bottles and has been a few months. She helps me dress her in the morning. She knows how to put her pants on. She talks(way too much most days lol) and walks and runs. She sleeps in her big girl bed every night. Oh and let me add that she lovesss being in the bathroom to talk to me when I’m doing my business. She still has that bink, but I’m REALLY not ready for that fight. I just give it to her now when she’s tired. So I guess I should just get ready and let her get on with the business of uh. . . Her business. I’ll do it. No one said I had to like it 😦
