Back in July I posted about starting the potty training on Little Man, I never did an update. Why? Because he is a stubborn little tyke and wasn't really ready. My next goal was at Thanksgiving, but after the toilet debacle - there was no physical way of making it happen. So yesterday morning I woke up ready to tackle the task again.
First, this kid is as stubborn as it comes, and well, diapers are much easier for him. We've had him in pull ups for awhile and he has learned to take them off and understands the concept of going potty. In theory.
The twins are a great help - they tell him everytime they have to go, so that he has a shinning example of what to do.
*** Post interrupted to run peeing child to the potty ****
Yesterday he managed to pee in the bathroom. I actually gave him a reward, because well, he tried. He just happened to be sitting on the edge of the toilet and all the pee went on the step stool.
Today he has learned to sit backwards on the toilet. (he doesn't like his potty at all) That's pretty much all he's learned today.
But this is my goal - no diapers in 2010!!! I think we can do it. With patience, persistance, and a lot of prayers.
