searching for the sacred and finding wonder
I am Romans... it says "You have insight on what it means to turn your life around and try to live for God. You really want people to understand the deeper things of God, but have a tendancy to come across as pushy and prideful...and at times, maybe you are. But you know your weakness and work hard trying to temper it with grace and compassion."Hmmm...some of that is exactly right.In any case, about the potty... I just didn't push it. We put a potty out for her, and let her sit on it, even if she was fully clothed. We'd go through the motions of wiping and flushing the big toilet. She'd sit on it naked alot... lots of book reading and singing, but no actual "pottying." Then she just asked to go to the potty the other morning, but not her potty, she wanted to go on the regular toilet. I put the potty ring from her potty on the toilet, sat her up there, and she went! It works best right when she wakes up in the morning or from a nap, but I try periodically throughout the day, too. Sometimes she asks and nothing happens, but I always let her try. Good thing the bathroom isn't tiny, 'cause we're spending alot of time in there lately, lol. Her neurodevelopmental doctor said she'd do it when she was ready, and not to force it or get anxious about it. And, of course, he was right. There's still a long way to go, but she's finally started!
Apparently I'm Proverbs, which works except for the part about not saying much most of the time. I just love to teach!
