Park Perfect

Nora loves going to the park for many reasons, the slides, wiggley bridges, open running spaces, a place to meet new friends and if Grandma takes her then it can't get any better. Today she had that blissful time away from parents with Grandma. There is though one of those favorite 'reasons' of Nora's that brings great concern to my husband and I. From all the excitement of the park Nora tends to like to find a secluded spot in the maze of bright colored jungle gym and do her duty. This always leads to frustration on our part and a park visit cut short which doesn't make Nora happy. We ventured today and let her go to the park in underwear attempting to help her on the pathway of potty training. There were no accidents. Success. Now we just need her to not hold it in while she's on the potty! Arghhh. I'm hoping this is short lived.

It sounds like you need to take her to the park more often. Perhaps she'll end up going on the tiolet there. It will come! She'll get the idea of it...eventually.

That is so funny! Of course, while you're in the process of potty training, it's not quite so funny. Whenever I potty trained my kids, I made them run around naked for two days! (we stayed home on those days, obviously)...anyway, both times, it worked like a charm! Good luck!

Yeah! That is always a big first step! Can I just say taht I truly feel for anyone going through potty training. I look at all mothers who have gone thru this in a whole new light. Good luck!
Your new little neice is beautiful!
