Potty Training Gabbie

We started potty training Gabbie when she turned two. It was an ON-OFF kind of thing, so it really requires a lot of patience and understanding on our part as parents. At first, we had to explain every time why she needs to go to the CR when she wants to wiwi or poopoo. I showed her how "ewww" her wiwi and poopoo look like, and explained to her that she should not wiwi in the house (meaning sala), on the floor and on the bed. "CR lang", in her own words. I bring her to the CR every two hours to create a routine. But we still had a lot of accidents all over the house. 

And then there was a time when I thought she was OK already. She would announce "Wiwi!" when she felt the need. But the next few weeks she was back to doing her thing anywhere again, without telling and without warning. And then we went back to explaining and such.

Now we're back on the right track. I hope this will be for good. She only wears diaper during bedtime and when we will be out for more than a couple of hours.
