Over the weekend, Logan wanted to try potty training some more. For a while, it was still just him requesting without any action behind it. But, we humored him anyway as tiring & annoying as it was.
Then,while in his Cars underwear, he began to wet himself & I jumped up from the couch as fast as my 6 month pregnant self could & rushed him to the bathroom. He was able to hold it until he got on the potty & HE PEED ON THE POTTY! By himself! Twice! We laughed & clapped & were all excited for him. He flushed, washed his hands & got two pieces of candy. We were very proud of him.
I think this is it. He can control his bladder enough to stop mid-stream & prevent himself from wetting his pants any further.
Yesterday, he had a cookie & was all cracked out on sugar, so no potty training that day. There was no getting him focused as he ran around in the backyard screaming at the top of his lungs for hours (I'm sure the neighbors just love us). This afternoon at our MOMS Club meeting, he asked me to go poop on the potty. Not taking him seriously, I told him he wasn't wearing underwear & we would go later. A friend sitting next to me who is having a difficult time potty training her three year old turned to me & said, "DON'T TELL HIM NO, GO TAKE HIM NOW". Point taken, so off to the bathroom we went. No poop, but at least we tried.
He didn't nap much this afternoon & I was flat out exhausted from being up since 5:00am, run ragged this morning for our schedule, so no potty training today. I think we'll spend all day on Saturday & Sunday seriously working on it. Hopefully he'll be day-trained by the beginning of next week!
