My Potty Woes

Well the hubby and I decided after we got back from our travels to the NW for the holidays we would consider taking a more active part in potty training S (meaning being serious about it). That meant for me getting over the fact I didn't want to deal with the messes that accidents bring. I realized that no matter when I did it I would have accidents so I just needed to get over it. Over the holiday we got a big box of daipers from one of my favorite places for many things (Costco), and it will hopefully be our last for S. So on Monday, I got out the underwear and put them to use. Day one, 2 wet pairs of underwear, not as big of messes as I expected. Day two, yet again 2 wet pairs of undies. It's usually the two times he goes to the bathroom after the switcheroo in the morning from diapers to underwear. So hopefully him just remembering he has them on. Day three, only one pair of underwear we had to change, but the worst so far. I was finishing unpacking from the trip and couldn't a couple of pairs of new socks B got. I'm the type of person I'll tear everything apart again and again until I find it. I can't sleep until it's found. Well I eventually gave up and think I left them at my parents house or they are lost somewhere not in the house. Well by the time I went to go check on S, needless to say he filled his underwear. I was hoping I wouldn't have to deal with that, but I course I did. Wet underwear is one thing, but the other, just makes me sick. Well now it's day 4, we are on the same pair of underwear we started the off the day with!!!! Hooray!!!!! No accidents and it's 4:30 in the afternoon. We are still working on him telling us when he has to go, for know it's just us telling him when to go. One of these days he'll tell me yes when I ask him if he needs to go potty. I guess it's just another day in the life of a mother with young kids.

Thanks for the name suggestion. I love the "house warden" thing. Very cute. As far as blog traffic goes, just keep posting and commenting. I got a lot of my traffic from commenting on blogs that got a lot of traffic and participating in weird games and stuff. It will pick up. Good luck.

Hey, thanks for stopping by my site! I'll comment on this entry here and a little later I wanted to comment on the comment you left me and I guess I should do it on my blog! are braver than I am with the training. My Milly is 3 very soon and I was going to work on the potty this week, but I am afriad of the woes so I keep delaying it. She found her potty chair months ago when I bought it b/c it was on sale, and it was a DISASTROUS day. So I am scarred. You have inspired me to try soon but maybe next week:-)

Getting them to tell you is the trick isn't it?

E still does not tell us, and we still have to ask him.
