I Hate Potty Training!

I must admit that potty training is my least favorite thing to do as a mom. I feel like I clean up messes all day. I seriously hate it and feel like it will never end. Bailey has made a lot of progress, but still will not poop in the potty. The other day, I was cleaning up the bathroom while she was playing. I went in to check on her and she had wiped her poop all over the carpet and walls. At that point, I just wanted to cry. I try to be patient and positive, but it gets a little frustrating. This isn't the first time she's done something like this. Fun times!

Although there are lots of unpleasant experiences with this, some are kind of funny too. The other day, she finally went poop on the potty, and was pretty excited about it. She said in a very excited voice, "Mom, look! It's a mommy poop, and a daddy one. Oh, and there's a baby one! And there's Maddie and Carlie '' (Marcus's sisters). I thought it was pretty funny. She has quite the imagination.

oh my! Poop on the walls! I would have cried too! Good luck with the potty training. As much as I can't wait for Cooper to wipe his own little butt, I am not looking forward to poop on my walls....

Ok, I do not envy you right now! That is so disgusting! I remember my mom telling me stories like that & I thought it was so funny. I'm sure my day will come... :) Good luck!!!

I admire your patience! It makes me a tad nervous though. That's so funny that she names her poops, you'll have to remind her of that when she is older:)

Maybe one day she will name her poop after one of my kids! One can only hope (:
She remains the FUNNIEST, CUTEST child I have ever met!

...AND that's why we are waiting for Hayden to give us a few more clues that he is ready to potty train.

I love that she named her poopies. She must have been so proud!

Bailey is so funny. Dallin used to smear poop on his walls and dresser when he was potty training. It's the worst thing I have ever had to clean up.
