Kellie Martin on Potty ... Please?
Submitted by kellie martin
The potty training thing is just starting to make me a little nervous. Four months ago, my daughter Maggie was into it. She really wanted to sit on it, she even went on the potty a few different times, and she seemed to love it! As the months went by, though, she became less interested.
And now I can't get her to sit on the potty no matter what I do. She completely refuses to sit on it ... and, as a result, she's still in diapers. We're moving backwards here!
What amazes me is that she's so articulate she can tell me why she doesn't want to go on the potty. She'll tell me that she doesn't want to stop playing to go potty. It makes complete sense, but still, it's not a valid excuse.
I'm trying to be really patient, but I'm sort of getting to the point where I'm worried that I'll have this brilliant child who won't ever be potty trained! I know that sounds so silly. I'm just trying my hardest to be all Zen about the potty training, but I'm just so type A that I stress about it. I know it's going to happen. But ... I want it to happen now!
Besides being a mom, Kellie Martin is best known for her TV roles as Becca on Life Goes On and Lucy Knight on ER.
What else is on Kellie Martin's mind?
