Three Days...Can it be done??




Ok, so I have been a slacker.  Jackson started showing definite signs of potty training readiness around two.  I thought that when a child was truly ready, he would wake up and just tell me he had to go potty. (He is my first to go though potty training) I know, I know, foolish Sara.  I let him wear diapers alot longer than is necessary.  But my recent trip to Arizona has spurred me on.  My awesome friend DeAnna has potty trained her little girl at two, and one day, I asked Jacks if he wanted to "be a big boy and go potty" and he looked at me and declared "No. I diaper." When I tried to place him on the potty he freaked the geek out and started yelling "I want diaper, I baby."
No more little man.  Armed with 2 dozen "Cars" underoos, a jar full of yummy peanut butter M&Ms and Skittles, a Royal Potty Seat and sticker chart, I am going to get him to use the potty if it kills me. Can it be done in three days? Can it be done at all???
I will let my small following of blogspot buddies know...

The Royal Potty Seat, huh?....isn't that the one that plays a little tune when they tinkle? :)

I can't remember how long it actually took for Kylea, but I definitely know that we didn't get anywhere with potty training until it was Kylea's idea. She is just a "little" stubborn. I have no idea where she gets it from. Ha!

Good luck with the potty training. I still have a little while until it's Addysen's turn.

I can't wait to hear about your adventures in potty training. I hate potty training more than any other part of parenting. Hope it goes well for you and Jack. We miss you guys and Claire keeps talking about Jack and Madi...

Megan potty trained in one day but it seemed to take three to five days to train the boys on the One Day Potty training method. I remember telling the boys to stop peeing on Batman. Chicklets Gum was the big incentive for a bm in the potty. I remember the kids asking for peepee candy and doodoo gum. Good Luck!

Good luck with that. It's not a fun job. Let me know how it goes. I've got to start Noelle soon. Blah!
