Double Trouble

This week I'm potty training Sammy (2 1/2) and my niece, who is two. First, we bought lots of salty snacks at Target to make them thirsty. Next, we bought lots of kool-aid for them to drink so they would have to go frequently. Also cool panties to wear and a timer. Then Eeyore put on a pair of panties and showed them how to use the potty, wipe, and flush. Mom (me) got to make pee noises. There was laughter all around.
They spent the entire morning sitting on the potty or sitting on special waterproof mats. Result: One pee accident from each child, (neither one was on the waterproof mat) two cold showers, three pairs of panties down (one from a spilled juice cup), and a nice little tantrum from my child.
But am I discouraged? No. I have figured out that Amari does the classic leg cross when she has to go and Sammy freaks out. So we'll see how this afternoon goes.
