Potty Training

I haven't pushed Potty Training really hard with Brody because he has has not seemed interested when I did try so I didn't want to push it. Everyone told me that when he was ready I would know. I really would like him to be trained before the new baby comes but  yet I don't want him to regress once the baby is here. He is big enough and tells me when he has went in his diaper, so I thought I would give it another go, starting yesterday evening! He did awesome! He went in and the potty and had no accidents. He was so very proud of himself and as a reward we took a trip to the dollar store ( whatever works)! He has also done great today, and had 0 accidents. That was even with us leaving the house to go to Library Toddler Time and to lunch at Subway ( his pick, his favorite). I hope that it continues to go well and I am not putting diapers back on him, unless it just fails and maybe he just isn't ready. So far he is doing great!! It is a bitter sweet moment for me, although I really want him out of diapers, its just anohter step that my baby is growing up! Brody is 2 years and 9 months!

Just wanted to write about this so I would have it for my personal memories......

You can do it girl! Sounds like he is doing great! There's no turning back now! He will have some accidents but that will just remind him that he has to use the potty so he won't make a mess. We did the reward system too with candy, small toys, whatever! I know it's hard on us as Mommies because it means they are getting older, but you will be SO glad you won't have 2 in diapers--trust me! Now THAT was hard! :)

Good for ya'll! We are still trying (its been a good 5 months!) He has regressed a lot since Blake got here. He is in pullups but i'm about to just go straight to underwear and deal with the messes! We use the candy, treat reward system also.
