So, this again is mainly for my records so that when I come back to this time with future kids I can look back and say, "oh, it happened with her and we got over it." At least, that's what I'm hoping I'll be able to say.
Pear was potty trained and doing great. Sure, I needed to remind her every once in a while or we'd have an accident but for the most part, she would come and tell me when she had to go potty.
About three weeks ago, we went to the park with our good friends/cousins Brook and Joseph. They have three little girls and the youngest two are about the same ages as Pear and Jovie. Brook and I were talking about our girls and potty training. I was bragging about how well Pear was doing with the matter and wouldn't you know, she had an accident at the park not even thirty minutes after the said discussion! Ever since then, she seems to have completely lost interest in going on the potty. If I tell her "let's go potty first" or "come on, you need to go potty" sure, she'll go on the potty. But that is ONLY if I remind her or make her. If I forget to remind her for more than an hour and a half, you'll be sure to find a puddle.
As much as I feel like putting her in diapers, I'm not going to. What good would that do? But here is where I'm stumped- what should I do? I guess I could go on watching her like a hawk and just putting her on the potty like clockwork but should I have to? I know she can do it. She knows when she has to go. She knows how to hold it until she gets to the potty. She did it for a couple of months!
Ugh. The ups and downs of potty training. In my case, there are a whole lot more downs than ups.
