Well, today was a good day and a bad day. Potty training is like that. You are happy to be able to free yourself from the diaper bag. But boy, is it a hard row to hoe.
I got a call from Grant (Tara dialed) early in the morning and boy was he excited to tell me something. He sounded so proud of himself when he said he went pee-pee in the potty. It made me think back when Katie was potty training. She would ‘put her pee-pees’ in the potty. I was truly excited to hear the news about Grant and gave lots of praise and encouragement.
Evidently, when Grant woke up this morning, Tara noticed that his diaper was dry and asked him if he wanted to go sit on the potty. He said yes and so began the potty training. So far, he has gone potty 6 times and missed 4 times. Pretty good for the first day. However, all of those were pee. So, we have not encountered “the big one” yet. We were so afraid that he’d have a poopie accident that we constantly hounded him during dinner, “are you sure you don’t need to go potty?”
I guess we know what we’ll be doing for the next few days.
