Guess who lives at our house?

The all time champion potty trainer of the world, that's who!

Mr. A will be turning 3 on Friday and due to a new baby, tired mama, etc. I put off potty training until this week. Thanks to the tips from Leandra (thank you Leandra, I'm soooo glad we had that conversation the other day!) I decided to try the underwear method instead of going w/Pull-ups. We started off the day w/underwear and after only 2 accidents, yes, 2, he has consistently been going to the bathroom - by the end of the first day he was even going and not telling me he needed to go! (yes, that is good and bad....some messes to clean up in the dumping of the potty chair, ahem, but anyway). Day 2 went well also and today is Day 3 - I am SOOO encouraged thus far about how well he's doing - I'm sure a lot of it has to do with being a little older, but hey, that works for me! With a 3 mo. old in the house, the easier this goes, the better!

Just wanted to share ANOTHER reason things are so quiet here in blogland - y'all take care!

Woo Hoo! He probably thought you'd never ask (him to go potty).

That's awesome that he picked up the potty thing so quickly! What a great relief for you! Good for him.

That is great!!! Does your friend have any advice for a boy who is perfectly capable of going to the bathroom, and always does as long as I'm letting him run around the house with nothing but a tshirt on. But the minute I put underwear or pull-ups on him, he has accidents.
It's driving me batty!
