So... she woke up at 7 this morning, and got into bed with me, and we laid there cuddling a few minutes. Then she said, "mommy, I up." and started to climb off the bed (yes, climb. I have a high bed). So then we get up and we go into the potty. She grabs at her cloth (she wore the cloth to bed last night b/c of a rash ) and said, "mommy, I off." so I took it off, she sat on her little potty, and did a big tinkle! All by herself. No prompting. No pushing. She WANTED to go on the potty!!!! woohoooooo! Then at 8:15, we got in the shower, so I took off her diaper and she was still dry, so I said, "do you need to potty, big girl?" she sat down and tinkled again!! yay! I hope that's a good sign that she's ready to start. I'll go up and her some pull ups soon... I hope I can find pull ups on sale somewhere.
Wow, what a big girl. Go, Maddie! Did your other daughters potty train early too? That'd be great if you can have her trained by the time the baby comes so you can save on diapers. And Pull ups are on sale at CVS next week for $8.99.

Maybe I'll wait till Sunday and use my 2.00/pull ups coupon and my 2.00 EBs to get them mega cheap.
Rina trained early. Fairly early anyway. She trained REALLY fast after I brought Kaity home. We'd been working with her, but she wasn't super good at it (she would pee pee though). Then when I brought the baby home, she made her own observation, "baby wears diapers. I'm not baby. I'm big girl." She trained when the baby was still a tiny baby. She was about 22 months. I honestly don't remember when Kaitlinn trained. Is that horrible? I know she wasn't major trouble and she was in Pre K when she was BARELY 4, but I remember some nasty poopie pants (when she was 2 1/2 or 3) in undies a few times. Rina has never had an accident...
That's the good thing about girls-- they have that whole independence thing going on. I love it when little kids decide that they're not babies anymore. My nephew, Kane, was so cute when he was little. I would ask him, "Are you a baby or a big boy?" And he would indignantly shout, "Big boy!" But then he developed his sense of humor and he'd answer, " Baby!" with a big smile. He was so funny. One time when he was about two, he climbed into the pet carrier and pulled the door closed. Then he started yelling, "Let me out! Let me out! I'm in jail!"
People did always tell me that was early for a boy, and people always said that boys are harder, but he was really easy if you ask me. Hopefully you'll have the same luck with Luke (and I will with my Luke, too! ).
At 4 months our son was pooping and sometimes peeing on the potty after each meal...then as he started eating real food it was less predictable. I had hoped to really start training him during the time off I had earlier this summer, but he was so interested in wanting to play outside. He's adjusting to the girls going back to school now/schedule changing a little, so I am going to try and do it again after Labor Day. I'm pretty sure he could...it's a matter of wanting to...he stays dry often overnight and during his naps!
I kind of dabbled in EC, and she did great until my husband took her one time. He let her fall and pinch her little hand, and then she wanted NOTHING to do with the potty for ages and ages...[/b]
He wasn't really signaling to go...he would make a poo face and so my husband took him in the bathroom as a joke...and he went...so we just kept doing it until it became too unpredictable/he didn't seem to enjoy it. We didn't want to scare him off and have big problems later!!!
