MIL : Zara still wearing diaper during day time? Me : Yes MIL : Aiyo, let her wear her panties without diaper la. Tell her to let you know when she wants to pee or poo Me : *smiled and shrugged* She reminds me again and again that her kids were toilet trained from a very young age, and I waited too long to train Zara (MILs are always quick to point out your shortcomings). Hmm, I listen to the expert, and I won't push Zara as long as she's not ready. We tried several time to get Zara to sit on the potty, she played with it, stepped on it, walked around carrying it. She'll freeze and say, "Poo Poo." when she's about to poo. If we asked her to sit on the potty, she would say "Don't want. Skat skat". I don't know why. Because the 2 of us are inseparable at home, she likes to follow me to the toilet and have seen me used the toilet bowl. I told her, "This is big people's potty. Next time Zara become big jie-jie, Zara can use this potty." She normally helps me flush after I'd finished using the toilet. "Fus (Flush)." She would observe closely to see whatever that's being flushed away, "see-see (pee) no more!" One day, while we were in the toilet, she pointed to the toilet bowl. Zara : "Poo poo." Me : "Zara wants to use big people's potty to poo poo?" Zara : "wang" I placed her on the toilet bowl, held on to her and started coaxing her with sound effect. After a few moments of trying, she just said, "No more!" and wanted to get down. My maid said she did that again last week. I guess when she's ready, she'll do it, according to her schedule.
