Stark. Raving. Mad.

In case I haven't mentioned it before, parenthood is the most challenging and humiliating experience. Ever.  But, it can also be the most rewarding, too.  I have to remind myself of that some days.

Cally in her new unders.

Our current frustrating experience is potty training child number three.  Just when we think we're making progress, we go back to the beginning.  In the first week, she was doing just about everything on the toilet.  That was about two months ago.  I foolishly thought then, that we'd have this one trained lickety split because it was going so well in only one week.  Certainly better than my other two.

We tried getting her undies to jumpstart her enthusiasm again, but they were only very exciting for the first two days.  She doesn't even care if she gets to wear them or not.  In fact, yesterday, she actually wanted to wear her undies, so I kept on vigilant watch for wees (and poos).  She went upstairs insisting on dressing herself and I kept asking her about using the toilet.  Next thing I know, she comes downstairs fully clothed, announcing matter-of-factly that she'd weed.  In her undies.  On the floor of Buddy's bedroom.  Nice.

I try hard not to have an over reaction.  I don't want her to be embarrassed or anything.  But it's not that.  I've realized with this child that it's not actually about having accidents.  With her, I really feel like she could do this if she decided she wanted to.  She's that smart.  It's almost like she gets a kick out of not going because she knows it's making us crazy.

I'm in some serious trouble.
