Our littlest went through a potty training spell a couple months ago. Naive me thought we were on the verge break through.
After about a week she decided she was really over it and using diapers was MUCH easier...for her anyway.
Today I decided to break out the Dora panties since she took off her own diaper, pulled out a wipe and wiped herself this morning. She announces when she needs changing and keeps removing her diaper. She proved before she has the ability to control herself. So here we go.
Anneliese LOVES Dora. So I told her, "We don't pee pee on Dora Sis. We potty in the potty." I must have told her 20 times. Within about 15 minutes of putting her Dora panties on she asked to potty. I scooped her up, took her to the bathroom, and she successfully "pottied in the potty."
About 10 minutes passes and I hear a shout from upstairs. Anneliese is yelling in a happy sing songy voice, "Mommmmyyyyy, I peeeeeeeed onnn DOOOOORA!!! I peeeed on DOOORA DOOORA DOOORA de duauahhdnndnaaaa!!!!"
Translated, "Dora Dora Dora the Explorer!"
Something was lost in translation.
