I've changed a lot during this process!
I was just thinking about how much I've changed during this EC journey! Of course I want to try to provide my daughter a place to eliminate when she needs to, but there are times when she just plain doesn't care if she goes in her pants! That bothered me at first, but I have finally figured out that it is not a big deal!! At this point, she will generally tell me immediately when she's peed in her pants, and I can change her. Right now she has a cold, and is definitely not interested in sitting on the potty first thing in the morning. OK! Even with the cold and refusing the morning potty, she still stays mostly dry during the day. In the EC forum people often give the advice to just relax and stay cool and enjoy the process. I think I've learned that! I definitely struggled with that during the 7-ish month poop strike! It's a lot easier to stay calm and relaxed when it's just a missed pee here and there! (So maybe it's a combo of EC getting easier and my attitude changing!) Anyway, it's always interesting!
