NikkiZ starts back to daycare on Monday. She’ll be going Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays as it turns out the daycare couldn’t work with my proposed Tues, Wed, Thurs schedule. This is a different branch of the school she was in before, but the same basic place. However, she’ll be in the Early Preschool class and evidently – PullUps are required. WHAT? EEK.
Potty Training is one of those things I’d rather not deal with. I have never really minded the whole changing diapers thing, so potty training is something that adds to my stress. We’ve been working on and off and on with her for awhile – but we still can’t get her to pee in the potty. She’ll wear panties or pullups and immediately after she pees she’ll say, “I need to go potty.” But – when we sit her on the potty to try – it’s only happened once or twice. I just kinda assumed she wasn’t ready yet, so I haven’t been pushing it.
But now? She’d better be ready.
They’ll work with her and essentially try to potty train her while she’s there – but I’ll have to continue the efforts at home. And in reality? She’d be old enough to move up to the UNDERWEAR ONLY class in about a month. Obviously, she probably won’t be ready for that, but when she goes back after my maternity leave? She’ll have to be ready. So, I’ll be dealing with a newborn and potty training a toddler at the SAME TIME.
Now – I’m not looking for potty training tips or advice – I’ve heard it all before. I promise. What I am looking for your intoxication recommendations. Should I stay drunk the whole time on beer? Or should I try hard liquor?
