My niece is nearing the finish line of potty training, but it hasn’t been a smooth ride. As many of you know potty training brings many messes and frustrations. Sometimes you wonder if they really understand what they’re supposed to do.
Olivia had already learned to pee on the potty, but No. 2 was taking a bit longer. One day she was in her playroom enjoying some time with her toys when she realized there was a mess in her pants. She knew that meant trouble and had to do something about it. Instead of heading to the bathroom, she took off the foul-smelling clothing and hid them, as only a two year old can. Her parents found the stained apparel and quickly grasped the fact that their daughter understood what she was supposed to do. She simply chose not to do it.
