He's doing it!

Logan is doing a great job with potty training so far! Granted, he is still learning and there have been a couple of accidents, but he's catching on quickly. Yesterday we had practically no accidents, but he also didn't poop at all for the entire day. I'm sure he was apprehensive about it and had been holding it in.

This morning was crazy with him having a horrible attitude while I was watching a friends daughter and hosting our board meeting at the same time. Logan had to sit on time out many times for not sharing his toys and being an ultimate brat. He peed his pants in one of those time outs. After coming out from another one, I sat him on the potty and he pooped for the first time! I was so excited and happy for him and he was thrilled with his accomplishment as well. After getting him put together, I grabbed his "orange car" (the General Lee that he's been waiting for) and when the meeting was over with, we called Bill at work so Logan could tell him the good news.

Logan definitely has the hang of peeing on the potty as he's told me three times this morning that he's had to go and has been successful. Pooping is another story. He didn't make it to the potty and I had quite a mess to clean up. I think he was equally as grossed out and it might not happen again because of it. We'll see. But he knows that if he poops on the potty again, Bill will come home from work with all of the Potty Party items - the toys, the ice cream and balloons. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he'll try again tonight, but I'm very confident that Logan will be potty trained for sure by the end of the week. What a relief! This was so easy!!!!

YAY! I am so happy for you and for Logan! Such a big accomplishment. A huge sign that he is no longer a toddler...And now a big boy.

I didn't know just how wonderful potty training is. If I had known, I so would have started earlier. And go Logan! I've heard boys take longer. Woohoo!

That is so exciting! I wish Stink would catch on...he isn't showing interest anymore...I don't know if I should force the issue or just leave it for a little while longer. Was sooooo hoping he'd be out of diapers by the holidays! He has his own plan, that's for sure!
