Potty training has been officially discontinued as of today. We stopped making real progress a few weeks ago and Gabe and I have felt like we were sort of just treading water, trying to hold onto the initial progress without slipping backwards...and it wasn't really working. Then the last few days Jonathan has completely rebelled against the idea. Sitting on the potty isn't fun any more (not even with the promise of chocolate chips!) - it is a fight just to get him to try. This morning I did require him to sit down and try, and after a few minutes of him screaming and me mandating that he sit, I gave up and let him go. Less than five minutes later - an accident all over the couch.
So. This isn't a fight I care to have. And it isn't a fight that I can win. Therefore we're going to have a planned retreat and try again in a few months.
He's only two. He's little. He'll get it someday.
