Day 2 of Potty Training..Reflections on Day 1

So, you might be asking yourself: "How did the potty training go yesterday for Lisa and Rawley?" Well, thanks for asking! He did really well for the morning. I set the timer and took him to the bathroom every 20-30 minutes. That worked great until lunch time and then it all went downhill from there.

So today, we will focus, once again, on the morning and see how things go. He isn't just super interested, but willing to go if he gets a sour patch (his reward of choice!). For me, it's not a huge deal either, so if we can take baby steps and get the morning where he is able to wear underwear and then work into the afternoon, then ok!...

I do find that with each child, I am a bit more relaxed about the whole thing. There are little timelines in my head, but I don't stress out too much about them. Pretty much I have noticed that no one goes to college still wearing diapers or pull-ups! Rawley will get it soon enough. But until he does, he and I will keep trying a little each day.

Yay Rawley! We did the timer with Greyson for about a week and I was exhausted. Right before he turned 3 we sent him to school in underwear with about 7 changes of clothes per day. The teacher suggested it! And magically by the end of the week, he was trained. I had a mountain of laundry though :)

Your efforts inspire me! Connor was very antagonistic for a long time, but things really clicked lately. However, he won't just tell me when he needs to go, so for the sake of my carpet, we're doing pull-ups indefinitely. I need to get on the wagon with Keegan because he is very interested but I am lacking the energy and patience right now.

Keep up the good work! He will learn and it will just become part of the routine! Thanks for the encouragement on my blog! We miss you guys!
