Good Luck! Perseverance is the name of the game. That and bribery.

Omygod I am holding my breath all week. And then, if/when somebody does indeed get potty trained, I will fly my daughter and myself out to NJ to sleep on that couch myself 'til you do a number on her, too.

I wish you luck.

I just got my little one to start peeing in the potty two weeks ago and she's doing great. It's been almost a week since she's wet her pants.

On the other hand, she steadfastly refuses to poop in the potty, and I'm all out of ideas.

I hope that, after the stress of the week to come, you will still be potty-trained on Saturday.

Good luck, it was the hardest parenting thing I have done.

Be strong.

May the force be with you...

Daddy-of-Twins powers, activate!

No magic tricks or helpful advice here. Just well wishes.

Good luck with that and may the best person win. hehe.

1 chocolate covered raisin for pee pee, 2 chocolate covered raisins for poopie.

Good luck! I hope we don't discover you weeks later lying in a pool of your own urine, crumpled behind the couch, defeated.

If I come over with a pitcher of margaritas, you can get ripped enough to pee in the corner with the twins.

Good luck. You are a brave soul and I wish you well! I hope we hear from you soon. :)

Oh dear! Good luck to you all!

oh my, i bet we get at least one poopy story :) good luck!

My prayers be with you! (And for the record, I don't pray unless it's an emergency, which I feel THIS IS.)

Let me know if your tactics work, as I've got three 2-1/2 year-olds to train sometime in the future, hopefully before graduation.

I'd gladly accept "It's OK, I guess" to what I get from my Editor Spouse, which is usually, "It's fine."

How do I look? Fine
I spent all day rearranging the furniture, how do you think it looks? Fine

Yeah ... gotta love the brevity.

As for potty training ... good luck on that. Really. I have always heard training one then the other works well. What kind of a bribe you givin'? A potty party in the future? : )

O.k., is it just me, or is anybody else confused as to why the sofa has to be moved to the kitchen for potty training? So The Dad can mix his martinis without getting off the couch? So the girls can just pee behind the couch right there in the kitchen? I believe an explanation is in order here, or am I just clueless to the latest methods of potty training? Either way, best of luck to you!

My best guess, mommy24x7, is that the aforementioned kitchen is a designated twin-free zone (i.e. there is a floor to ceiling gate/wall that is blocking the entrance of said twins, therefore becoming the safe zone for all potty-sensitive furniture)

Either that of it's the only room with tile--easier to clean up the behind the couch mess...

Hoo boy. I'm crossing my fingers and toes for you this week. Hang in there!

So it's be 24 hours - are they trained yet?

Good luck to you! After you've figured it all out, be sure to post and tell those of us who haven't been there yet about all of the many training methods that didn't work and what one thing not mentioned in any book did.
