Jack used the big boy potty SIX TIMES today! Amy and I decided Jack was ready for the big boy potty since he's been interested in it for a couple months now. We wanted to make sure we were settled in before we went for it. Needless to say, the first day was a smashing success!
Putting the third sticker on the poster in the bathroom. We are far from potty trained, more like parent trained, but that's the first step: getting them to do their duty on the chair! We feel like he did a great job today. Three accidents and six successes is a great ratio for the first day! What a big boy. So hard to believe. Sigh...
It really helped to bring his potty out into the main area of the house. And he really liked to wear his big-boy pantaloons. Peyton was a lot of help too. I went over to their house this morning to grab her old Dora toilet seat and she wanted to come over (was pretty much begging). She was able to encourage him throughout three of his successes. We had all planned to go to the game, but decided to have Peyton over again instead of undoing our success by having to put him in a diaper for the game or worse yet, dealing with the underwear and going to the bathroom every 15 minutes.
Way to go, Jack!
