Momentous changes around here – with the except of naps and overnights, diapers are now a thing of the past around here. Elsa’s been an official potty training (or as they say in Montessori, “toileting”) graduate for about 10 days now.
Elsa is thrilled to finally get to wear her “big girl underpants”. And this weekend, she pretty much just wanted to wear her panties, and nothing else. This was fine around the house of course, but meant a big power struggle when I insisted she get dressed to go out.
And power struggles have been practically an hourly occurrence lately.
Her expression in this shot is perfect – for that last week she has been in turns cranky, petulant, contrary, bratty, whiny, willful, and just plain obnoxious. everything I say is met with “no!” or “i don’t want it!” It hasn’t been fun.
I’m chalking it up to exhaustion – can’t be hard to make this transition.
And, hey, parents who have BTDT, is it weird that she has had not one single accident? I thought that kids kind of always have some, right? Maybe that’s what’s sucking up all her energy… pursuit of toileting perfection.
