On Sunday I
So, lately Natalee has decided that she wants to go "Pay-ye" (potty). We got her a little potty chair and she almost always goes when she asks. However, she has learned "Hands" recently. After going potty she washes her hands. Now, she wants to go potty and wash her hands about 4 times in a row. After the second or third round, I tell her "You already went, all done!" and she freaks out. She will lay in front of the bathroom door screaming "I Pay-ye, I Pay-ye..." I'm not sure what to do. I want her to use the potty, but its also not a game and its not just for fun. Any thoughts, suggestions, input? Please? Pretty please? Did we start her too early? (Although, she started on her own... we didn't even suggest it to her and she started asking).
One one more mom thing: How the hell do you deal with the whining? Oh, it's like nails on a chalkboard... why must she communicate only in that whiny tone? It's really not necessary and actually works against her. And on that note, when do they start to reason with you? (I'm thinking its around 24 or 25, unfortunately).
