No More Diapers!!
Today was a very proud day in our household, today our youngest member of the family was potty trained!! Not 1 single accident I am beaming, can you see me?!?...BEAMING PEOPLE... ME... OVER HERE... BEAMING!! For whatever reason the 3 years 1 month mark has worked for my boys. My oldest officially took 3 days to potty train but the younger 2 got it the first time on the first try without a single accident.So now we work on perfecting his aim, he definitely needs help in that area my bathroom floors are proof of that.
Some of you may be thinking "WOW!! life is going to be so much easier for you now"... WRONG!!! Now the real work begins the traveling everywhere with a potty chair and water bottle, hand sanitizers, wipes and having to have the knowledge of where the closest and cleanest public restroom is at all times in any and every location.*GROAN*
But once we get the hang of it and fall into a routine he will be able to experience the true reward of this special right of passage, a reward every potty trained child experiances in their life...PRESCHOOL!!! Half day of course but he is so ready and excited. He needs his space and friends and well is just itching to get away from mom!! I imagine the image below is how you will find me in the restroom of his preschool talking to my sister on the phone as she tries to talk me off the ledge as I am sniffling and mumbling "HE"S NOT A BABY ANYMORE!!!"
