I almost hate to say it...

but....we're potty training. I mean he's actually doing it. He's getting the hang of it. He's excited. It's going much easier than I ever anticipated. It's all due to a visit to a friend's house who is potty training, and the use of suckers as a reward. I would have never guessed that would be the ticket to success, but hey...I'll take it!


That is not to say it's not still disgusting. I stand by my observations that it is still yucky. On a few occasions poop has ended up all over the bathroom, and once on his sister. Don't ask me how....daddy was babysitting. I wish I could have been there to see that go down.

He has to be naked or it doesn't work as good. If I put sweat pants or underpants on him he forgets he is potty training. Is this normal?

I mean I'm still gonna take it. I don't care if he has to be naked for a year. It's better than being the only one who hasn't potty trained their kid yet. I felt like a pariah. Now I feel like I'm the one that's getting my big girl panties. LOL

Your still okay cuz he's a couple months younger than Byron. If I knew where you get the big girl panties I would have picked up a pair a year ago. Lol

Sounds like you are on the way. Good luck. We are working on it too with Lukas. Not many accidents anymore, but wondering how to tackle the overnight thing.

Whoo-Hoo. Potty training when they're ready...following their lead, I think is the best way possible...unless they're 5 and then maybe you should just go ahead and go for it.

Good luck. Keeping my fingers crossed for both of you.

Well, Cooper just turned 3 last week and he has NO DESIRE to pee or poop in the toilet. I have tried so many times with him and he just really doesn't care if he is wet or poopy. I'm not sure what I am going to do with him.
