Mommeee!! Pee-Pees!

Ahhhhhh... music to my ears goes something like this: Mommmeeeee! Pee-pees!" pad-pad-pad-pad to the bathroom. Everything hits the toilet. No tears. No hesitation.

My two year old is now potty trained. I have done this twice before but what a journey this one was. Honestly, it was a trip through Bizarro world.
  • This kid defied all odds and learned pooping on the potty BEFORE peeing.
  • He held it and held it and held it. (Both poop and pee) His record was something close to 18 hours. I was a nervous wreck. I thought he was in for a serious bladder infection.
  • Since the first day of training (6 days ago) he has woken up dry from almost all naps and night sleep. He wore undies to bed last night and I was not panicky.
  • And today, for the first time, he told us when he needed to go, stayed dry all night long, all nap long, and did not have even one accident. Seriously - does this really happen?
After 5 days of trauma and disillusionment and regret (I am nursing a 7-week-old, afterall) I thought I would never survive this. An act of desperation led me to purchase the ebook called 3 day potty training. Her method is similar to mine with a few tweeks that made all the difference for Weston. Like a charm, it worked. Best $24 I have spent on a secular book.

Alison, I know you are in the midst of PT as well. If you (or anyone else) want to borrow it, I will check out the copyright details and if it is within my right, I will pass it on!

I'd LOVE to borrow it. We're making serious progress, but we've got a ways to go still. And WOW, way to go Weston! (and you!).
