Adventures in Potty Learning

So, we’ve begun the whole potty learning thing.   I’m not sure which I dread more, cleaning diapers until Annie is 3 or cleaning poop off the floor.  So far we’ve been just keeping her naked from the waist down, and have been encouraging her to sit on the potty.   In three days (today is day four) she has gotten to the point that she is pretty much going in the potty for all elimination.   So yesterday I thought I would put her in underwear and see what happened.   What happened was a lot of pee on my floor and one poop in the underwear.  She can’t differentiate between the underwear and a diaper.   So we have some work to do to help her understand that she needs to GET naked to sit on the potty.   I’m a little nervous about going to the beach without being completely potty trained, but Danny seems to think the change of scenery will be just what she needs.    She’s such a smart little girl that I have no doubt that she will pick it up quickly.   We’ll just have to do some extra laundry!
