The Potty Training Diaries- Day 2



aka: How to humiliate your child by writing all about their poops and pees:)

aka: Operation: Use The Freaking Potty 

Day 2
Verdict: Pretty Good

The Method: Bribe. Doritos were his poison of choice today. No doubt that he's my kid!

The Good: Z was really really receptive to the potty today. He was dry when he woke up (SHOCKING! this has literally never happened before) and did a great first-of-the-morning pee. Proud mommy and proud kid! In total, he used the potty more often than I expected and was only reminded three times (I can't help myself). I think the Diego underwear, reminding him of friends who poop and pee on the potty, and positive reinforcement are working really well. HAHAHAHAHAHA, just kidding. It's the treats.


The Bad: He had 3 accidents. One was a poop in his pants. BARF. He also was in a real snit today. You have no idea what a mood this kid can get into. Needless to say, this made him a real treat;) Despite the mood and the poopy pants, there is very little bad to report.

The Really Unexpected: He announced he is going to potty alone (i.e.: without me standing there holding his winky dinky) tomorrow. We shall see...

  3. Good for him!! What a great start to it all! I fear the potty training days, my little guy isn't 3 until October, and really doesn't seem ready yet, so Im not pushing the issue. Every once and a while I will ask him if he has to pee and wants to sit on the potty, and he will, but never pees. I think he's gonna be a cold turkey kind of kid; just pick a week in the spring/summer when I think he's ready, take the diapers away and go for it!
    Bribes and fun undies will be high on my list too!

    1. We did cold turkey too, with a bit of a pep talk the week leading up to the removal of diapers. I mean, I think when they're ready, they'll do it...at least, I hope that's how it works.
