Big Day...

Threepeat is wearing underwear for the first time today...yep, no diapers.

Now, I am not holding out too much hope here because although he has shown lots of signs of readiness for potty training, he still has a LONG way to go.

I got very lucky with Boy Oneder. It was the Mother's Day before he turned three (his birthday is June 28th, so we are talking about 6 weeks before his third birthday) and he woke up that morning and decided he didn't want to wear diapers anymore. We hadn't even planted any seeds or talked about potty training, but he decided it was time. I swear it's true when I say that he never, EVER wet his pants. He never EVER soiled his pants and he never EVER wet the bed...EVER. I put him in Pull-Ups for the first week, but he woke up dry every morning, so we just switched to his pajamas and that was that.

I got very lucky with Middleman. It was the Mother's Day before he turned three (his birthday is June 29th, so we are talking about 6 weeks before his third birthday) and he woke up that morning and decided he didn't want to wear diapers anymore. We hadn't even planted any seeds or talked about potty training, but he decided it was time. I swear it's true when I say that he never, EVER wet his pants. He never EVER soiled his pants and he never EVER wet the bed...EVER. I put him in Pull-Ups for the first week, but he woke up dry every morning, so we just switched to his pajamas and that was that.

Yes...I just simply cut and pasted the paragraph about Boy Oneder and changed the name to Middleman and the birthdate to June 29th. Middleman was a carbon copy of Boy Oneder in the toilet learning department. Am I lucky or WHAT???

But....

Threepeat has been the complete opposite of his older brothers from day one. He is louder, stronger, bigger, more confident (I'm being kind here people...LOL), so I can't possibly be lucky for a third time, can I?

I'll keep ya posted.

R & L were complete opposites as well. R took for.ever. to potty train. So long that we were worried that she might not get to go to school (school started in Sept and she would turn 4 in Dec of that same year).

L on the other hand was a breeze. Almost potty training herself. She started wanting to go on the potty about 4 months ago. She's been wearing underwear during the day for a month now with only a handful of accidents. Nighttime is taking a bit longer but she's not 3 yet so we're not worried.

Guess L's easiness is making up for the frustrations we had with R.

Good luck!

Well you never know......

(I really doubt he'll be as easy but..)

You never know...... ROTFL

Did you buy him some super cool underwear to sport? Maybe if he really wants to keep them clean and nice....that could be some motivation.
