Potty training central

     It's currently potty training central at our house. Even though HM is child #2 for me, I feel like a seriously lost mom at this point! SPF was so easy! I bought a doll that peed, we taught the doll to pee, then she peed. Easy, done in one evening. The BMs in the potty took a couple weeks (that was nasty) I got sick of cleaning and tossing panties so I finally resorted to bribery. Told her if she went "caca" in the potty she got a "caca candy" (her gummy vitamins.) Worked like a charm, never pooped in her panties again. If only boys were as easy as girls!





     I really should give him, and myself more credit. We did spend the entire weekend changing pair of underwear after pair of underwear, (reminding myself the whole time not to call them panties) cleaning up puddle after puddle. Watching him point and scream at it, I think he was rather impressed with himself actually! I knew he had the ability and the desire, but I expected it to happen quickly as it did with SPF. Well by Sunday afternoon I was ready throw in the towel.

     When I dropped him off at day care Monday morning I asked them to put him on the potty as much as possible. My goal to just keep up with what I had been attempting over the weekend. Low and behold, he peed on that potty all day! He was only wet after his nap! Such a proud mama am I!

     Now we spend our evenings with HM running around naked so he can quickly get to the potty.

     I long for the day I am free to walk out of the house without the dreaded diaper bag! But for now, I am relishing in all the little victories. Wish us luck....

  1. I'm glad that potty training succeeded with HM and as you mention, boys are a bit harder to train than girls. Just one thing though - please tell me that either you or his big sis SPF wiped HM's bottom well before he sat around all over your leather sofa!!
