I guess we’re potty training right now!!
It’s been two days so far.
It all started on Tuesday night, around 11pm, when Lucas woke up crying. He asked me to change his diaper (never, ever, has he done this before) and he told me that tomorrow (Wednesday) he wanted to wear his underwear. Honestly, I thought he would forget about it, but Wednesday morning he woke up and the first thing he said was that he wanted to wear his underwere!
A few weeks ago, while at Target, we picked out some new underwear for him. He is really into race cars right now, so I got him some “Cars”underwear. To him, it’s just cars. He doesn’t know it’s actually a Disney character race car.
So — On Wednesday, we vetoed our morning plan and decided to stay home. It’s been hard being home the last two days. We are generally always out doing something every morning! We’ve been keeping busy playing in our backyard, doing art, and playing tinkertoys.
These things are awesome. A older couple friend of ours gave these to us. I guess he bought them many years ago at Costco. Lucas has really been enjoying them!
Lucas is doing really well with this whole potty training thing. He has had 2 accidents in his underwear the last two days and every other time he has gone in the toilet. We left the house twice today for about 30 minutes each time and he stayed dry. He also woke up from nap with a totally dry diaper!
Tomorrow morning, we have plans at 10 that I am not canceling. I still haven’t decided what I’ll do with Lucas — if I should put a diaper on him or let him wear his underwear. He really doesn’t want to wear his diaper. I don’t want to force him either and go in the wrong direction, so I think I’ll let him wear his underwear and I will just bring an extra change of pants. No big deal.
We’ll see if progress continues and if this is truly really going to happen!
