A Note about Potty Training

It is hard work when the toddler doesn't want to do it! I worked at it for about 6 days and then back to diapers we went. Desmond was holding it in as long as he could so then things started to get really messy. He just wasn't motivated in the least to tell me when it was time to go. He knows when he needs to go and he can definitely communicate with me, but he's in a willful stage where "No!" seems to come out more than anything else. We'll give it a rest for now and try again later when I have fresh energy and new ideas for motivating him. It's not worth it to me to be locked in a battle of wills over poop right now.
