Okay, so I’ve been talking about starting to potty train Trent. I bought the underwear, pullups, and plastic pants over the last few weeks. I kept saying that I would start as soon as Ryan’s work schedule slowed down. Well, he finished up his project today. So… I gave Trent a bath this morning and he didn’t want me to put his diaper on him (he never wants to get dressed after his bath) so I said, "okay, we’ll put big boy pants on". So we did. I put underwear and plastic pants on him and off we went. We entered the world of potty training.
I am kind of doing the old style of potty training. No more diapers! He only wears a pull up to bed. If we are in the car, I put underwear on 1st and then a pull up. This allows him to feel the wet but it doesn’t get on his car seat. He got a sticker on his chart every time he went and after 5 stickers he got a prize (a hot wheels monster truck)! So, how did he do?
He did AWESOME! We had accidents but not as many as successes! We didn’t start potty training until 10:00 AM, and he actually got 15 stickers today. After he got 2 prizes, we had to change the rules a little. He now has to get 10 stickers for a prize. He loves the praises he gets and he loves calling everyone to tell them that he went potty. I am so proud of him, but I am EXHAUSTED! I am ready for bed and hope that morning doesn’t come very soon. All in all, it was a great day, but GOODNIGHT!
