Tighty Whitey


Check out those big boy underwear! Thats right people...David is potty trained!!! one baby down!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, let me just start by saying this was one of the most exhausting things I have ever done!! We have casually tried to get david to go on the potty, but finally decided to go full fledge. We did a plan called "Potty Training in One Day." We devoted the weekend to it, but it really worked!! I also think that David was ready....I think thats a big part of it, realizing signs they're ready. The basic idea is to put them in underwear and pump them full of liquids....juice, water, chocolate milk and every time they start to go pee, put them on the potty and if they finish going.....make a HUGE deal and give them a reward ......you do this over, and over, and over.....until it clicks and they go on the potty every time!!! David got it the first day when he had an accident and finished on the potty....he is majorly reward motivated so he picked it up really quick!!
It wasn't ideal timing for me having a newborn around and just being exhausted from that, but really i figured there would never be a perfect time. So, yay for David!! We haven't quite mastered night time and going #2, but every day is getting better. I know there will be accidents.....and I'm sure with my luck they will all happen when I am in public :)

Yay!!!! That is huge! Jamie started doing the potty thing last week but the last two days has shown ZERO interests... I ask her if she wants to go potty and she says "nah". Oh well. She is young yet so I'm not gonna push her... well, for now. She is in for it though because I know the stinker can do it!!!

yay for david! that is so exciting. I know it's a pain to potty train, but then it's so much easier once they just go on their own and you don't have to worry about it! Good job mommy!
