Potty Training!!

While a lot of you are probably shocked that we haven't done this yet, we are comfortable in our decision to wait.

We started yesterday afternoon and had one success and a couple of accidents before bed last night and then today was pretty rough going for the morning until nap time. I was finding it extremely emotionally draining (being frustrated on the inside and trying to be totally encouraging on the outside). I decided we'd regroup after nap and make a decision at that point. Keenan has done So well since then and has had NO accidents! He has been amazing and we are SO proud of him! We celebrated with pizza and a movie of his choice tonight. =)

Man, who would have ever thought you could get such an adrenaline rush from hearing your child peeing on the potty? =0)

Go Keenan!

P.S. And who says WHEN this is supposed to happen? As JB said to me when I suggested moving Isaac to a big bed, "... and why are you trying to make our life harder?" All in it's good time!

You are such a great Mom!

Good for you, Joia (and Philip) for waiting until he was ready. And LOL, about getting an adrenaline rush when hearing the sound of pee on the potty! I can totally relate.

Congratulations Keenan! What a big boy you are now going on the potty!

I love you, Grandma E.
