In the grips of hell...

Let me preface this whole post firstly by saying I am the mother of two successfully potty trained children.  The world of potty training was at my hands! I had the literature and know how to determine when would be a good time and emerged victorious. Easy and tear free...until I met my third child.

I took note when she would come up and say,"I poo-pooed change me", or physically took off her Huggies pull-up and threw it in the garbage on her own without me even asking. 
I prided myself in the fact that she was so  smart and only 2 years old. The potty chair had always been there. A fixed specimen that moved locations gracefully from bathroom to living room..to basically wherever she wanted. Yes this third child was demanding. "Don't you want to be a big girl!" I would retort?, "Don't you want to be just like your sisters?". "Don't you want like a giant cookie, candy bar or triple layer cake!!!" (screw the 1 piece of M&M's candies. I was going big!)
