So Let me start by saying... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! i did not know potty training would be this emotoinally draining! Some may have noticed i have not been very active on my blog or even facebook or twitter. WHY? i have been POTTY TRAINING! and well after so long all i can say is it is NOT working! I already get comments when people look at lulu ,who actually looks bigger than her age, they would say something like " yeeeeee lisaa pampers??""lisa ma nadafteeha?" which basically means " OMG your daughter still wears diapers you are such a lazy mom!
Well i took tips from mothers and believe it or not 2 mothers who SHOCKED ME recommend using a MATCH. how? they would light the match and then BURN THIER KIDS (_/_) if they pooped or peed on the floor!! I CANT BELIEVE ANY MOM WOULD DO THAT and actually RECOMMENDS IT!?? its child abuse! they SWEAR it works! but i am sure it also causes major psychological DAMAGE for the poor kid!
Then there are those mothers who show off and start saying " OH your daughter is not potty trained i potty trained my daughter at 12 months or 18 months". And for some reason it makes me feel like i am doing something wrong and that they are better mothers. But the truth is, every kid is different. Some walk before others, some talk before others, some teeth at 3 months other teeth at 10 months.
All is within the Norm. So its not like in the future if i apply for a job i will " Potty trained my child at 12 months" as point that makes me more qualified. It reminds of the whole breast feeding lectures i heard if i ever gave lulu formula. YES i know breastfeeding is the BEST for your baby. And Breast is Best ofcourse ! and i did for one year but every once in a while i would give lulu formula and i dont think its " POISON" as some would say. I was hardly breastfeed and so many of working parents were not able to breastfeed for long & some actually dont get enough milk. wa hayn zay il GROOOD ya ma7lana SO please do not judge any mother for not being able to breast feed her child. i am not arguing here if its better or promoting formula i am just saying LAY OFF the poor new MOMS! i think i never mentioned "breast " this much in one paragraph! Speaking of BREAST! omg omg omg
I came across this LADY in the middle of the FOODCOURT BREASTFEEDING *twitches* and not in a way where she is hiding or trying to hide her (.) she was like just sitting there and i dont think her baby was even feeding. she was just considering her (.)(.) meals on heels! she was just like sitting there exposing herself to the world. Maybe she thought the food court was the best place since was feeding :S
Anyway back to main subject.
So what i feel is that lulu is not ready.. i tried removing her pampers and ended up cleaning poopies and pp from everwhere. MORE MORE cleaning. More Laundry. More STRESS! AS if i needed that! i think i will wait a few more months till she is more aware. Some start at 3 years and potty train thier kids in 3 days only cause they are old enough to GET IT!
I QUIT! And if anyone has anything to say like " i did it in 3 days" please take lulu for 3 days and i will PAY YOUU!!!
I NEED THE SUPERNANNY! is there an arab supernanny anywhere?
ok what a smelly post this is :P i wil try to blog more often :)
