I Really Don't Know What I'm Doing, Do I?

I'm really not sure how Aidan got potty trained. I know I encouraged him, maybe sat with him in the bathroom a few times but I knew he wasn't going to potty train until he was ready and not a second sooner. Next thing I knew, I wasn't buying diapers anymore. Not until Asher filled that void. Now Asher is 2 and diapers are still expensive. That, paired with him telling me he's pooping, probably means I should get started. Since he's a little less violently dramatic than Aidan, off we go.


I pulled out the potty chair this morning and stripped him nekkid when he said "poop". He peed in it. About 60 times. One drop at a time. And he won't stop. He won't let me empty it and he won't quit squatting over it. Love the enthusiasm, Ash, but we got stuff to do today so wrap it up, ok?




Update: 2 hours later - He's still nekkid, still dripping into the potty only now he's eating bacon. I'd take a picture but I know there's some sick pervert who would search for 'n@ked toddler sitting on potty eating bacon' and then I'd have to lose my damn mind. I don't have time for that today.

Funny you should mention this. Munch went to the potty last night and stood over it so she could "pee like Tuck." Time to start employing some alone time in the bathroom!

eating bacon on the potty,now that's a new way to enjoy your food! I'm not looking forward to potty training my youngest just yet.

Multitasking already. Nice.

oh man! i hate potty training! we were too "tough" with our first one and he still has poop issues at 8; with our 2 year old now, i am too damn tired/busy to worry about it!! is that bad? he will pee on the potty but nothing else, i figure when he is tired of it being stuck to his ass, he will let me know!! hate buying the diapers but feel like i would be committed to the local looney bin if i attempted that at this point in time!!!

Eating backing and going to the restroom, teach him to hum too and he'd be like really multi-talented.

ok. I was eating a cracker when I saw the "He's still nekkid, still dripping into the potty only now he's eating bacon" line. I spit the cracker all over my desk! It's all your fault!

Too funny... I didn't even know that my oldest had been potty trained by the sitter during the day for two weeks before I was so thrilled that he went an entire day over the weekend without a diaper. When I told the sitter on Monday - she said, "Oh, he been going all day without one for 2 weeks here." DUH, thanks for telling me. So much for a working mother... I didn't work with the second kid... it was easier the second time for me.... :-)

Dottie is 2.5 years old and obsessed with the potty.... lost of running around bare assed, lots of 'changing' her own diaper.. and the only place she's peed other than in a diaper, is on the floor.

not looking forward to this.

Ah, the old naken bacon on the potty trick. Yep. Good times.

Fingers crossed for a quick and painless toilet training phase for you.

I wish my parents would have potty trained me, when I think of all the money I could have saved on adult diapers!

I found buying "big Boy" pants with of course cars and such on them a great enticement. With my first daughter it was Wonder Woman Underoos (remember them matching t-shirt and panties?). If he is that excited about it perhaps it will go fast. Yeah! No more Diapers.

lmfao...isn't that just like a boy? sits on the potty too long eating bacon? LOL...omg, I can picture it (but won't search it)

I have an award for you at my place!

Hahahahahahahahaha!

I remember totally LOVING my potty chair. I would sit on it just because. I think I was attached to it because I associated it with being praised for doing my business in it. I felt like a million bucks when I was sitting on top of that thing!

Anyway, great post. I love how I feel like I know you and your kids personally after reading through your blog!

You're making way better progress than us. Gunnar has started going into the bathroom and shutting the door to crap--in his diaper. He sits on the potty "bare bum" a dozen times some days and has yet to produce a single drop in the thing. Here's hoping "it just happens" for both of us--and soon!

Good luck with potty training!
