I have a 5 1/2 year old. And I still change diapers.
My daughter is beautiful. And she reads pre-primers. She writes, she spells. She’s absolutely brilliant, and creative. And a social butterfly.
But she has sensory issues. Which delays potty training.
So you need to understand that Rob and I have changed diapers for 81 months. At 5 diapers a day, on average, that’s 405 diapers!
Beanie has been doing well with potty training at school. But, at home, it hadn’t been happening. Finally, I suggested that, maybe, it’s the inconvenience of having to go upstairs to the unheated bathroom.
So, Rob picked up a Port-a-Potty for the basement. It’s been nothing but success since then! My Jelly Bean has been earning LOTS of handfuls of marshmallows! She’ll even get up from video-gaming, to use the potty.
And the Port-a-Potty will get her ready for using the potty in our motor home, and on Moonraker (we’re redoing that bathroom though–it has issues).
Definitely a big day in our family!
