Seriously, how are you supposed to potty train a kid when it's something you've never trained anyone to do before, and you yourself learned like 27 years ago?!
I know everyone has hints, and suggestions, but since no 2 kids are alike none of the hints and suggestions are always going to work.
Ryleigh no longer likes having a wet diaper, and will take hers off if it is wet. But she does not want big girl underwear on. She has no problems peeing or pooping in the potty when we stick her on it, but she won't tell us she needs to go until after the fact. No amount of M&M's or stickers have seemed to help.
I'm pretty sure my kid will still be in diapers at her high school graduation. (Okay, not really. I just like to exaggerate :-)
