Potty Training 101

This little boy is amazing and doesn't even know it.

I can take no credit for his potty endeavors. Friday night he took his diaper off, went to the bathroom, closed the door, sat on his little throne and did his business, (1/2 landing on the floor), but who cares! Informing me after he was finished by marching his little bare bum out to the kitchen, jammies at his ankles, "pee in potty Mom,"(sorry Jeane for the free show)!! **We had some friends here for bread making lessons!** So, after eating his fair share of m & m's and being showered with praises and lots of "banging hands", (his way of saying "high fives") he continued to be without his diaper the rest of the evening and the following day. Saturday there were a few accidents, but by the end of the day he was running there all by himself, even going poo on his own! WHAT!!?? I just laughed because I could hardly believe it! So, it's Monday afternoon, not even three days after beginning his "training" and he's peeing like a champ! I am seriously amazed at this guy! My Mom said he is "Jake resurrected"....meaning that when he makes up his mind, he does it, preferably on his own, without fanfare and quite efficiently!

So, Luke if you read this someday, just know that when you were 2 1/2 years old you had a quiet determination and deep resolve unlike most adults I know! This afternoon his Aunt Jan came and took him to Turkey Hill for a "prize" and boy was he PROUD of his candy stash. And out of the kindness of his heart he gave me a pack of candies and Tyler a pack of candies, leaving him with his lone lollipop. What a darling, darling boy!

Go Luke! I love this little guy. Determined, stalwart, unruffled, no frills, just here in the NOW. We should all be a little more like him.

WOW! It's proof though...potty training has to THEIR decision...once they decide they want to, it's easy as pee...er...pie.

I could have used Luke 15 years ago when I decided to implement "Potty Training In One Day" with Alex. Between the constant flow of pee and tears, it was NOT a good day...nor did it work. Way to go, Luke...maybe one day you will write a best-seller that will actually WORK!

Hey I had to smile at your post. Silas did the same thing for me in December. I kept thinking that he was going to regress but he is doing awesome. I was amazed because my first two were not so easy. Anyways...here's to potty training!
