Potty training 101 was last year with our first son that does NOT deal well with or want change. Now that wasn't a party! My partner and I are still laughing at and scarred from that little parenting experience. Good times! So I guess this time around does make this 102.
So now it's time for our 2 1/2 year old. He has shown every single sign possible. He's very text book and is ready to go whether we are or not. He takes his diaper off at every opportunity. Pretty! Especially when I think he's napping, and he's really undressing and playing or really is napping....sans diaper!
So we took the plunge this weekend, thanks to our little diaper Houdini. However, like all parents with their second child we're much more laid back about it this time around. We allow things that we would have never allowed with our first son. Potty seat in the playroom, just in case. If he has an accident, well we have hardwood floors. If his accident is in the playroom, well thats why the potty seat is in there, and we have Flor squares. We'll just replace that square.
While there's no such thing as Potty Training in 24 hours! Nasty, nasty misleading read on the internet, so far are having better success this time around. Maybe because we're more relaxed, or maybe because our 2 1/2 year old isn't resistant to change.
At any rate, wish us luck and hopefully I won't lose my "Mommy Pants" this time around!
