Little Miss Smarty-Pants

My 26 month old is brilliant. Yesterday she had exactly one potty accident. Today, none so far. It’s too soon to be declaring victory for sure, but if this keeps up she’ll be my easiest potty-trainer yet. She TELLS me when she needs to go, for pity sakes….


  1. Oh! I love when it is that easy! Crossing my fingers she’s got it!

  2. What kind of potty seat/chair do you use?
    Oh, and how did you know that she was ready to start the process?
    Congrats. Sounds like a winner situation there. 🙂

  3. WooHoo!!! Go 26 month old (and Mom)!!!!

  4. Wow! That is amazing! Aside from occasionally wanting to sit on his potty chair with a Sandra Boynton book, my son has almost zero interest in potty training…

  5. Good for her! What a blessing for you.

    Sarah talks a good game and sure does like the pretty underwear in the drawer, but doesn’t follow through. I’m not ready to push it.

  6. Oh WOW!!! WAY TO GO!!! Wish I could say we were right there with you!!! But I’ll just rejoice with you! : )

  7. Woo-hoo! I have been changing someone’s diaper for the last 7+ years (I have three kids) and I am REALLY looking forward to the day when I no longer have to walk down the baby aisle. Good for you all and your brilliant kiddo!!

  8. she’s a genius!

  9. You go girl! We’re up to 4 days with poo-poo in the potty at our house… Time to celebrate!!

  10. Oh potty training goddess…. please share your secrets! I have a 27 month old boy who only tells me he has to go potty after the fact and is so tense and scared on the potty he can’t possibly go. Tonight we got a tiny little stream out of him before bath time, but I know he sullied the bath water as soon as he got in! No 2 year old can go 2 hours with a totally dry diaper and not relieve himself as soon as his bum hits the tub!

  11. Indeed, share the secrets! I echo Jill! My oldest is 34 months and staunchly refuses. It’s so hard having 2 in diapers! Maybe I’ll be able to potty train them both at the same time though. 😉 The second is only 14 months though – probably won’t happen!

  12. Wow, I wish the Princess would tell me when she has to go… I know that she’ll be trained before she starts school so there is hope!
