Potty Training is Full of Crap....

Yes, we are still trying to potty train Ella. No, it isn't going well at all. I have tried everything:

- Pretty princess panties
- Candy bribes
- Cute new toilet for herself
- More candy/treat bribes
- Brand new toy bribe that she only gets if she goes on the potty
- Moved the toilet location

I can't even think of anything else to do. Anyone else have any suggestions? I'm about ready to invest in some toddler, child, teenage, and adult sized diapers because I don't think my child will ever go on the toilet! I know that kids don't work well under pressure and stuff, but I haven't really been pressuring her. We tried a couple months ago, gave up because it was causing Ella to majorly stress about it, and now we are trying again. She doesn't even care to try to go on the potty and doesn't care when she goes in her pants.

I am getting extremely frustrated with this situation. I only want one kid in diapers at a time and the baby is due in two months.
