My son is two and a half years old.
He loves basketball, anything that flies, dogs and the outdoors.
He adores his big sister, even though he worries the life out of her at times…
and is her little shadow.
He’s always on the move with a big smile plastered on his face.
And yes, we’re officially in toilet-training mode.
The big P.T.
I have read countless number of articles claiming that boys take way longer than girls to potty train. So after Bunny Boo crossed his 18 month mile-stone, I have to admit I was a little worried. I knew the day to begin potty training was looming closer…and I was not prepared.
But God has such an awesome way of doing things!
One morning close to his 2nd birthday, Bunny Boo jumped up while playing and ran to the toilet.
He hurriedly asked me to pull down his pants and diaper, prop him up on the big toilet seat and then it happened…
he actually peed in the pot!
He didn’t need stickers, candy treats or bribes.
All he needed was the role model of a big sister whom he loves to emulate.
He wanted to pee in the big people’s toilet…
so he did.
It’s a process…
Even though we’ve begun the potty training journey, we haven’t reached our final destination yet.
While in the house, he’s always in a cloth underwear except for when he sleeps at night.
Since he isn’t very fond of baby diapers right now, we try to stick to vroom-vroom Lightning McQueen Pull-Ups!
The ease of slipping this on and off like a regular underwear makes him still feel like he’s a big boy.
Biggest potty training challenge right now?
I would have to say staying dry on long road trips, long sessions outdoors or even at times at night.
We’re still working on this but we’re focusing on the accomplishments thus far!
Celebrating a flush at a time…
is what we’re doing right now.
If you have a little one who is potty training, don’t wait to celebrate once he/she has officially been potty trained…
Sign up to throw a Why Wait? Lets Celebrate! Pull-Ups House Party
We’re going to have one!
I know it’s a little late but isn’t it better to throw one fashionably late than never?
(We just may do something with some of Bunny Boo’s Little Gym buddies who’re on the same journey.)
If you plan to sign up, hurry as sign ups for the party close at the end of December 2012.
And after you sign up, hop back over to the Pull-Ups Facebook tab to look through the conversation threads started by Moms just like you and me.
This is your Pull-Ups “First Flush” Ambassador reporting!
This is all so exciting!
As a Pull-Ups “First Flush” Ambassador, I’m grateful we have our Pull-Ups and the great resources on the site to fall back upon.
Potty training my little boy has honestly not been hard at all, thanks to his need to do everything big sis does.
But remember, what works for one child may not work for another.
You just need to find the one motivator that will help your child through this.
If you’ve potty-trained a child, tell me…
What motivated your child to use a potty?
