Today We Had a Breakthrough

Today was the first day my son voluntarily got up from what he was doing, went into the bathroom, and made magic happen. Yee-Haaa! He has yet to tell me when he needs to go, so I'm a little wary about venturing into public without him being swathed in large amounts of plastic, and as I am typing this, excited about potty training success, he just pooped into his new underwear. Crap. One step forward, two steps back, I guess.

Please! Don't give up hope! My youngest of six children gave us fits about potty training. You would think after five others that I could figure out the trick, but no. One day, I just had it with the diapers and threw them all away. After that, her attitude was, "Well, I guess she's serious about it, so I guess I better go potty. I'm not getting away with it anymore." The time will come when it will all click. Hang in there!

Ok, as the worste potty-training mother in the world, I can relate. We are on va-cay right now at my mom's, and Eric is still trying to use the potty, but now prefers using his diaper to poop- take this morning: he takes his diaper off, pee's in the potty, then asks me to put his diaper back on so he can poop. I oblige him, and he heads for the backyard, telling me "My goin' outside to my Poop Spot, Mama" and trots on out the door and climbs under the patio table to do his business.

Serves me right for trying to stall him. Now he's gonna be in diapers until he's seven, I'm sure.
