The Princess and the Potty

So Alyssa is starting pre-school in August and in order for her to be able to attend she must be potty trained.  Last Thursday we started the "potty training".  The first time I was able to get her to pee on the potty, she freaked out.  She jumped off the potty and peed all over the bathroom.  Lovely!  Accident after accident by day three, both she and I were tired of all the pee.  Alyssa was very sweet I kept explaining that we go pee-pee on the potty and asked her if she understood and she would reply, " I understand, I sorry Mama.".  Bless her heart.  So on Saturday, day three, Aly woke up dry in her pull-up and I thought "Here's my chance, we'll get her to pee on the potty and today will be better".  I put her on the potty three separate times before breakfast...nothing.  I sat her down to eat breakfast and two seconds later she peed all over the chair.  I asked her where we go potty and she replied "On the ground".  After that I decided that we're taking two weeks off and starting fresh, hopefully it will sink in where she's supposed to go potty.

Sorry it's so tough. These things just take time, and for them to be ready. We took about a six month break with Allison, she just wasn't ready the first time. The chair in that picture is so darling! Where could I find that?

The only thing that worked with Dallin was keeping him naked from the waist down while we were home...good luck!
