There are exciting times in our house at present with little Princess 2-nearly-3 deciding she'll lower herself to toilet train. She's so stubborn and independent that the day she decided to try, she pretty much got it.
Here's the frustration... in the 'pretty much'.
Yes, i know I'm lucky (she's number 3 kiddo and by far the best at this... although a little older than the others were). Pretty much is very good. One accident per day is brilliant. But that one accident feels like a disaster. She gets all 'I can't do it' and I'm trying to be positive (while cleaning up... hard).
It's like learning to write.
Getting close is wonderful. Great feedback, maybe even some contest success, and stories I know are doing lots of the right things.
But still, there's that #$%@ on the floor and it's not quite there.
Like Princess 2 will hopefully get there one day so will I. And it's the same with learning anything. There are setbacks, it can seem impossible.
What about you? Toilet training? Learning something but not *quite* nailed it?
