Potty Training update!

Just in case anyone was wondering, the potty training is going exceptional!! Almost too easy that I wonder what tomorrow will bring!!

He had 3 accidents total all day and no poo poo accidents. Those are the icky ones!

Here is the method I'm using in case you are ready to potty train too.

**When he woke up I put him on the potty right away. He actually went so we were off to a great start.

**Then I put regular undies on him (I know kinda brave but he loves them). We made a potty chart...he colored it...we put up stickers each time he went and then he got 3 m&ms or choc. chips. That of course excited him!

**I set the timer for 1 hr. -- he did have an accident so I reduced the time and took him every 45 min. I would just announce "It's Potty Time"... He did great! If he didn't need to go, I then took him every 10 min. until he went. This happened in the afternoon.

**That's it!! I think since I have undies on him and not a pull up, I was more disciplined because it there is an accident then there's a mess. With a pull up the mess is easy so it's easier for me to forget to take him or get lazy. But that's just me!
He even woke up dry this morning (surprise)... I think it's only going this well because he kinda was potty trained before. But I'm excited!!

I'll update again at the end of the week. Hopefully it will still be good news! Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!
