We've had Emma's potty sitting out for several months now, and we got her some big girl panties that she is free to wear whenever she wants. I don't make a big deal out of it, because I don't want to stress myself, and her, out over this issue. Plus everyone says, "Wait until they're ready. One day it just clicks and then it'll only take a day or two." So, what I'm wondering is, when is that blasted day going to arrive? Other than one chance accident almost a year ago, she has never peed in the potty. She loves to sit on it immediately after she pees in her diaper, which is obviously futile. Almost every morning she wakes up with a completely dry diaper, but when I ask her if she wants to sit on the potty, she says no. When I ask her during the day, "Do you need to pee in the potty?", she'll say, "Not yet!" Today, after returning from running errands, I asked her if she wanted to go. She said "I go in four minutes." So, fourish minutes later I asked again. Her response? "I go on Saturday." Hmmm...I guess we'll see.

Love the pictures. Why do you ask her when she wakes up dry? Just set her on the potty and you set yourself on the big potty and say something like "It's time to go potty." But there is that Rothermich procrastinating gene so maybe that would be too simple.

Ha Ha! Bree doesn't pee in the potty yet either.

When do we get to see some belly pics?
