Oh Crap!

Or maybe I should call it potty training 101.  I have been looking forward to this time for will about a year.  I have had potty chairs scattered around the house and M and M's all around.  I had cute underware with characters that Max liked but what I didn't have was a kid who cared about going potty in the potty. 

I had on occasion tried to potty train Max.  Putting him on the potty every so often and then getting frustrated when he would sit on the potty and then pee while he was washing his hands.  Then I got pregnant and I couldn't deal with that sort of mess on the floor, made me want to vomit.  So the training waited.

So last Sunday on my way out of church another mom asked me what was going on and I said my son was naked at home and I wanted to go home and get the potty report, she laughed and said that's what they were doing too.  I got home to find the kid in a diaper and a dad that had given up on the idea for the day.  Fine.

Last Monday though I got serious!  The second his little diapered butt hit the last step to the living room I removed the diaper brought the potty chair in the living room and told him if he wanted to watch his Mickey Mouse video he needed to try and potty first.  Sat down and peed the first try.  Yeah for you.  Diaper again during nap, take it off and then had to go tend to Sam.  Came down stairs and he had peed in the potty all by himself with out having to be reminded, I was so proud and so was he.

So fast forward to Sunday and we are doing pretty well.  He pees and poops in the potty  pretty regularly.  However, I still mostly let him be naked only because we are at such an early stage I'm afraid he would sit down on the potty with his under ware on and piddle.

Apparently this task is multi step process.  We were at the I have to pee and there is the potty what a coincidence.  Now we are at the I have to pee where is the potty stage.  We still have to get through the pull your pants down to potty, potty before you leave and finally potty standing up.

Why did I share all this?  Because I could never find any positive info on this subject online.  All I found was "help I have a 4 year old who won't train" or "help my kid won't poop on the potty"  Never a site that gave info what worked for them.  So I hope this helps someone.
