Well, we decided it was time...time for us to get a small raise...time for O to get some cool Thomas underwear...time for us to ditch the diaper bag. We have officially completed the journey and O is diaper free!!
Since O did not realize he had to go potty until it was too late, I knew
I had to be the one proactively asking. Rather than he resenting and
getting angry at me making him try to use the potty, I set a timer and
every 45 minutes or so, we would go sit and try to use it. He was very
willing and got excited when the timer went off. He was so proud of
himself when he actually went in the potty. The first two days, we had a
few accidents, but much less than we expected. By the third day, we
were down to no accidents. From then on, it was only a few accidents
here and there. After the first week, he was telling me when he needed
to go potty and the timer went bye-bye. Once the potty training chart
was completed, we got him a big truck, wrapped it up, and left it on top
of the potty. We told him the potty fairy left it for him. We were so
proud of how well he caught on and how easy of a transition this ended
up being. He's really becoming such a big boy!
