More joys of parenting.

We’ve been working on potty-training Clone for a while now. Today for the first time we put him in underwear instead of pull-ups. He’s been good about telling us when he has to poop. He’ll tell us if he has to pee… when he’s not busy having too much fun. He’s also been waking up dry in the mornings.

We figured this was as good of time as any to try him in actual “big boy” underwear. So far today we’ve had two “accidents”. To be honest there was nothing accidental about it. He just didn’t want to go to the bathroom.

I’ve potty-trained Boopie, I can potty-train Clone. I just forgot how annoying it was.

Yeah, let's hope he doesn't take after his brother in those regards :/

Heh - brings back the memories... Young son refused to potty train - when he was 3 - I finally had it - took him out of diapers and let him figure it out. Took about 2 days for him to realize that peeing in his pants wasn't very fun in winter - makes the pants legs cold. Better luck to you with Clone. *grin*

Point and laugh, that's what I'd do . . . Ok, so I wouldn't inflict that much damage on my kid, but Teresa's idea worked with me. Let him walk around in wet undies and he'll get the picture. I did tell the Boy that the power rangers didn't like to get peed on though. He thought that was funny.

Doing the same thing with the granddaughter- gads, I thought I had paid my dues already. So far she points to her dad's crotch and says "poop", so I guess we're making progress.

Still have venison!!!!
