So my DD is 3 and speech delayed. We just put her in a home daycare to get her around other little kids since we don't know anyone with children, sad I know. Anyways, this is her first week of full days and it hasn't been going too great. She's been struggling with nap time, won't eat meals over there (because she is crazy picky, we knew it would be this way but want to see if she'll eat if she realizes she has no other option) and potty time has nothing short of a disaster, each day she's been there.
Today pretty much started out the same as the rest, her teacher took her to go potty she had a melt down after
going potty and proceeded to run around screaming and crying. Coupled with some other personal stuff going on my day was shaping up to be a real winner of a day. Anyways, a couple hours pass and I get a text from her teacher saying she went to the potty all by herself, and when I say all by herself I mean she walked to the bathroom and her teacher followed her and helped her take her pants off and she hopped on the toilet and peed....she has never
done this before, awesome right? Lunch time rolls around, she only eats crackers, shocker. Then comes nap time, her teacher says it's time to lay down for a nap and she has a meltdown, puts the blanket over head and starts crying. She then gets back up and gets her crackers, eats a few more, and runs to the potty....yes that's right 2 times in a row now! Comes back and her teacher says it's time to take a nap and she goes to her little mat, lays down and pulls the blanket over her and goes to sleep.
So all in all, I thought this day was going to be pretty craptastic, but now I'm on cloud 9 over her potty independence and that she went to sleep on her own!!!
