My 3 year old, Audrey has always been so sweet, kind to others, cuddly, and really…just an all around lovable girl. But, then something happened. Her little sister was born. Audrey was still perfectly sweet…until I was out of the room.
On top of that, our potty-training success was thrown right out the window. She had to go back to wearing diapers every day….and let me tell you (though, I’m sure many of you know), changing the diapers of a 3 year old is pretty crappy (literally). So, not just one babe in diapers anymore…two…and lots of messes all over the house. I can’t stress enough how overwhelmed I was feeling. And, then…it got worse. Audrey started hurting Isabelle (the babe). Just minutes after I would leave the room I would have to rush back in to see why Isabelle was screaming her head off. Audrey would usually confess that she “sat on her head”. Oh, that’s good. One time I walked in on her pushing Isabelle over repeatedly…every time Isabelle would stand back up. It broke my heart. I cried, for real. Several times. Ugh.
So, that’s what I have for you (if you’re in a similar situation)….the recommendation is to get Potty Power – For Boys & Girls! I owe my sanity to this video.Need more potty training help?? Check out these past posts:Sparking Interest in Potty Training
