Question Of The Week - Now With Updates!
Oh, yes. It's time. We've been postponing Jack's potty training for several months now. First, because of our move in May from Colorado to Kansas. Second, the drive cross country. Visit every truck stop between Kansas City and San Diego? No, thanks. Diapers seemed like a much easier option.
So, here we are now. I'm still not 100% sure he's ready. He doesn't show much interest in it. But, we're going for it. I've reviewed the method we used with Carter and am hoping for the same success.
I have no expectations in regards to Lainey's potty training, but am prepared should she insist on it. And, if I know my daughter like I think I do, she will.
big kid undies - check
sticker chart - check
stickers - check (thanks, Donna!)
doll that pees (working on it)
party supplies - check
crate of wine - check (for Mom, of course)
I'm feeling optimistic and excited about this. Now, all we need to do is prepare Batman for his training.
***The question - What are your tips? Last minute advice? Words of wisdom?
Jack - 2 accidents, 1 successful potty!
Lainey - 2 accidents, 2 successful potties! (yes, she went first - poor Jack)
Jack - no accidents since naptime, several potties and one poop!!!!! (who knew this would be suitable conversation for the blog?)
Lainey - 1 accident since naptime, several potties
Jack - no accidents since naptime, several potties....seems to be on board the "potty train" if you know what I mean!
Lainey - no recent accidents.....not as efficient as Jack, but hanging in there
Casey - in need of a strong margarita
Think I'll sign off and return to my post on the floor....monitoring "activity", altered faces showing suspicious concentration....and wait patiently for the husband to arrive home.
Overall, it's been a great day for potties everywhere. Hallelujah!
