RE: Potty training and she's holding her pee for hours
Um, yeah, Abby does that, too. She also amazes me that she's able to go so long with out peeing. For instance, she was dry overnight & then didn't pee until about 10am this morning. She throws a fit when I want her to sit and "try". So I do try to get her to try, especially when we're out & about, but it doesn't always work - no easy task to try to wrangle a toddler onto a potty if she doesn't want to go. ;) She always does make it to the potty when she does have to go, so I'm kind of just going with it.
Sounds like we're in the same situation. :)
Sometimes I'm able to coerce her into "trying" if I give her a choice like "Let's go sit on the potty before your nap. Should we read the Spot book, or Curious George?" Again, sometimes letting her make a choice totally works, and other times it's still no way.
Don't know that this helps, but FWIW, that's what's happening here.
