Potty training day two

Well, day one of potty training is done. We had four accidents and six successes including pee and poop. Yes, as a young adult i would laugh at myself getting so excited over bodily functions!

At first it was tough because he cried and did not want to wear underwear. Then he did not want to use the potty. But after some persistance and patience he got really good at it. I had to do two loads of laundry because he wohld have to pee a little before he would realize he had to go but once he did he would go to the potty. He even dumped his pee in the toilet himself after he saw me do it once! 🙂

What I did was make him wear shorts and elastic waist pants (he usually only wears jeans) so they are easy to get on and off and no diaper. We tried underwear but it just got in the way. I also rewarded him with little chocolates (anything to get him to go was worth it).

It was a lot of work and between him and the girls I was exhausted but I am feeling really good about this…finger crossed!
