So for some reason S decided he was ready to start potty training at the age of 19 months. This definitely works for me! He started out last week when he was having issues holding his poop and in turn was pooping in my tub. Yuck! I decided to ask him if he wanted to sit on the potty which he replied with a huge head shake. So I quickly grabbed him and sat him down. He lasted for a min or so and decided that the tub full of water and toys was a bit more exciting. Who wouldn't right? About 10 more min of tub time he started with the wonderful arching back so I knew it was time again. Me: Wanna go potty? S: head shake. Back to the potty he goes and HE DID IT!!! He actually pooped on the potty!
I continued to put him on the potty a few times a day so he could get used to it and it was pretty much hit or miss (sometimes literally!). I competely expected it though as I am a "pro" in the potty training department. The past few days it has been more hit than miss which was awesome. Still in my ever doubting mind that he was actually ready for this I figured it would be at least another 6 months or so of this before it actually worked.
I am not sure who came to have a talk with him but whoever it was Thank you! This whole potty thing has finally clicked more than not!!! Today he has successfully peed on the potty 3 times and pooped just as many. Whoo hoo!!! I am completely and utterly shocked that he is doing so great at this!!
I am anticipating some regression when Daddy leaves though but I am more than prepared to handle that. I am confident that he will pick back up in no time.
On the other hand I am sure am going to miss his fluffy butt though!! Thanks goes to Julie, my diaper making Momma friend, for all the wonderful fluffy mail I received!
