And let's backtrack a little...our day was busy...and potty training did not start til after 3pm...but the idea of it started much earlier. We went to the mall to get some undies. Truth be known he has plenty of leftovers from Dylan...but...I thought it might be extra incentive to let him pick out his own..and I had a gift card to Gymboree...so off we went! Here he is swinging his undies outside the store! Whohoo!
I found this on the internet (how to train a boy)...not that I don't know all this (though I am not sure we have the "right equipment"?), but I have trained 4 kids and 1 other boy...still it was a good reminder :)
- Let him watch and learn.
- Buy the right equipment.
- Help your child get comfortable with the potty.
- Motivate with cool underwear.
- Set up a training schedule.
- Teach him to sit first, then stand.
- Set aside some naked time.
And after this he went pee in the potty two more times...yay, yay, yay! He is such a big boy and I am so proud of him. Makes me a little sad that he is growing up, but I know it's time. Love you, underwear-wearing/peeing in the pot, buddy!
