Potty Training- Again!

We briefly tried potty training last summer and it didn't go so well. Since then, they have been wearing pull ups and we have been asking if they need to go on the potty. They will always go after a bath, and recently, as soon as S gets out of the tub she shrieks, "I have to go pee-pee!!" It's like she held it and just cannot hold it any longer!

Since I have 4 weeks off over this holiday, I decided I would try the bare bottom style. I know that they are ready, and just are being lazy about having a pull up on. Yesterday was Day 1. It went well. We only went bare bottom for a few hours in the morning. There were no accidents and both went peepee in the potty. M was holding it more, but she at least went.

Today we did bare bottoms all day (except for nap). S did so great! 1 minor accident, but 98% of the time she went in the potty. She even ran to the potty a couple times on her own, without telling me! I thought that was a huge step.

M was having more trouble. I really think this is a control issue with her. She is totally capable of it, I know. I wasn't even going to push it with her, but she wanted to be naked like her sister. Today, she had a few accidents. One time I asked her if she needed to go and she said no. Not 10 seconds later, I notice she is peeing. Of course, I do not make a big deal out of it, but it is frustrating.

No potty training tomorrow, we are going to the zoo!
