Potty Training


So I couldn't think of a cleaver post title about potty training so just threw it out there...most of this is just because I want to remember this terrible, no good, very bad experience in parenting. We have enrolled Wyatt in a preschool for the Fall. To attend he has to be potty trained...when we signed him up he was NO WHERE NEAR being potty trained. ;/ We knew it was something that had to be done but didn't want to push the issue at all! When someone says they are about to start potty training it's almost as bad as having a baby...everyone has their story! ;) 


We knew better than to "push him" to do something he wasn't ready for...we learned that the hard way. It was the week of his 3rd b-day and I decided to give it a try, like a real try. We (I would go stir-crazy if I didn't leave the house for 2 days.) He spent 2 full days at home with me reminding him to use the potty about every 15-30 mins. At bedtime we still used a diaper/pull up. By the middle of the 3rd day we decided to leave the house. I was so nervous so I put him in a Pull Up. This continued for a few days..he would wear underwear at home and then Pull Up in public. He was great at home but then would wet when we went out. He wouldn't tell me, he would just go. 



Finally I decided to just take a chance...what was the worse that could happen I have to change his pants!??!!? Well, that only happened twice and he started catching on. He finally made improvement! It all of a sudden just clicked. ;) 

He is doing GREAT and tells us when he needs to go potty. He has even gone by himself and not let us know until he is finished and needs help washing his hands! Such a BIG boy!! 

Now...if he would just learn to go #2 in the potty. I won't fill you in on details but let's just say he hasn't quite mastered that part yet. ;( Maybe he needs this...

WOW!!! That's all I have to say about that thing...it has to be a joke!
