Video of the Day: Sh*t Preschoolers Say

I’ve seen my fair share of “Sh*t _______ Say” videos, but this one really made me LOL. Maybe it’s because my kids have said everything in the video at one point or another.  Wait, I’m playing Angry Birds…I have to go potty…I can do it myself…I can’t do it.  Too funny

Behold…Sh*t Preschoolers Say.  And after watching, make sure to ‘fess up and share some of the sh*t your preschooler says.  My 2-year old regularly tells me she doesn’t want to be a good girl.  Oy!

Poll: Is Potty Training In One Day Really Worth It Or a Total Rip-Off?

My daughter turned 2 in July and not long after her birthday, I started introducing the idea of the using the potty. Four months later and she still hasn’t mastered the art of going to the bathroom. She will use the potty if I ask her if she has to go, but very rarely will she say “Mommy, I have to go to the bathroom.”

I know she isn’t going to get it overnight, but I am getting a little worried she’s A-ok living in diapers. I feel like I’ve tried everything–a “princess” potty that makes noise, Dora the Explorer pull-ups, just about every type of reward if she goes all by herself–but nothing is getting the job done. I talked to my pediatrician–and doctor mom, my mom, that is–about it and both of them say not to rush it. She is still on schedule and now that she understands the whole bathroom concept, it will click when her body is ready.

Problem is, I’m ready. As is my budget. I’ve been buying diapers for over 2 years now and I am so over it. My daughter is so close to putting the whole process together, I can just taste using that money for food or bills or anything besides diapers, which is literally just throwing my money in the trash.

So I was doing some research yesterday and I came across this Potty Training In One Day program that, you guessed it, promises to have your toddler using the bathroom solo in just one day. The wesbite it totally gimmicky which makes me skeptical that it actually works, but it’s been endorsed by Parents magazine and Dr. Phil.

Have any of you moms heard of it? Does it really work? If it wasn’t $50, I’d try it in heartbeat, but before I drop that kind of cash I need some real mom testimonials. So if you’ve used it or know a mom that’s used it, share your thoughts in the comments.

Or if you have some other tried and true potty training techniques, please share! I am desperate!
