Well, it's official - Daniel is potty trained! Last Saturday (a week and a half ago) was his first day in big boy undies and he's been in them ever since with less than a handful of accidents.
I swear it's like a switch with kids and once they get it they get it. With all of my kids it's always been on their terms. They decide and they do it. I actually play a very minimal role in the whole thing.
I wasn't even planning on starting the process so I had just ordered a big box of regular diapers and swim diapers. That's always the way right? But last Friday he was showing interest in the potty and he went a couple of times. I could tell it just clicked so that was his last day in diapers. Well I'm still putting them on at night but he's actually only been wet one morning so far.
At one point I had three kids under the age of three so we had LOTS of diapers in the house. I'm definitely looking forward to the end of that era. Although, with a 5, 4, and 2 year old now using the potty I might start writing reviews of all public restrooms in the state. Oh, and I think with the money we save on diapers I'll go on a tropical vacation...in my dreams at least! Potty on, people!
