Two weeks ago this little man thought it would be a GREAT time to potty train...right before San Diego. Umm okay? whatever. I didn't actually think he would I thought he just wanted to maybe try to use the potty and that would be that. NOPE he goes potty on the potty. Pee and poop!! And I did NOTHING to make that happen!!!! Cause I am AWESOME!!
This is how I potty train in my house. "When the kids are ready they will show me." Which for Jordan he was 3 years and 3 months. Kenzie was 2 and a half (and it was the day after I had gone to costco to get diapers.) and Bob 2 years and 9 months. And I didn't have to push or "train" a single one!! That is not to say we didn't have any peeing in their pants. Jordan had a hard time staying dry at night. Kenzie peed herself maybe 2 times. And the most recent one is when we heard Bob say "I pee in the hole" and he came out of the kitchen with pee all over his pants. Will told him about the "hole" in the front of his undies so that he would wear them the right way cause he was wearing them the wrong way to see the cars. NICE!!! BAD.IDEA.WILL!!!
So my advice to you since it has worked for 3 kids over here is DON'T stress!! And they will go when they are ready it will be easier on you and them and will happen in no time with less mess too!! I have yet to clean up any mess from Bob (well other then the pee in the hole one:) )
