Potty Training

For some crazy reason I decided to start potty training Miller yesterday. He has been showing signs that he is ready (like telling us when he has to go and occasionally going on the potty), but I think being potty trained is really overrated. All it means for me is one more child to tell me they have to go to the bathroom in the middle of my grocery shopping and then visiting a very, very dirty bathroom! I really cannot think about it too long or it makes me kind of sick to my stomach. Anyways, yesterday our plans changed and we were home all day and I realized we did not have any plans for the rest of the weekend and Ella is going to VBS next week. So, the timing seemed right as far as being home. The idea was so spontaneous I did not even have underwear to put on the child! So he ran around comando all day, which being a boy of course he loved it! Overall, yesterday was pretty good. Only one accident, three times on the potty and a dry diaper after nap time! So far today he has done pretty good too. Only one accident. We will see.... I am definitely not going to get bent out of shape about it if he does not do it, but I figured it would be great if he really was ready and we were back to only one in diapers!!!

You know any child who runs around like this is going to be just a bit of a challenge when potty training. Who wants to slow down and take time to go to the bathroom when you can do it on the run?!

  1. I would love to know how this goes! I have no idea how to potty train a boy! Thomas actually shows zero interest in the potty and doesn't care if his diaper is dirty. I was thinking we might try this summer, but I just don't think he's ready. Any tips or advice you have would be greatly appreciated!

  2. This is PRICELESS! I remember finally getting my boys trained with Spiderman underoos...they just WOULD NOT get them dirty and even think of having to take them off. Why is it that costumes seem to work so well?! You go girl.....!!!
