Potty Training

Isaiah is now in the potty training phase!!! We are easing into it and have finally found what makes him want to go potty, wearing underwear over his diaper. Nana had bought him some toy Story underwear and I went out and got him some Thomas the train underwear. He is super excited.

Up to this point I have been teaching him to go potty sitting down but this weekend while we were at a church retreat Alan took him into the men's restroom. One of the first questions Isaiah asked was "Daddy what are they doing??" I am sure he asked it in a loud curious boy voice. So Alan showed him how to pee standing up. And now my little man WILL NOT go potty sitting down. I hate cleaning the bathroom toilet as it is and don't do it very often and now I am going to have to do it every day or two. All I can say is he better have good aim or I am gonna make him sit down to go potty. When my friend was potty training her son, I would always tell him, when I was watching him, that I would give him two treats instead of one if he sat down to go potty instead of standing up!! He always obliged :)

Anyways, it if fun to see the excitement on Isaiah's face when he does go potty for me. He knows it is a big deal and loves for me to praise him. Let's hope I can get him fully trained by mid August. That would be awesome . I can almost feel the extra 50 bucks a month in my pocket !!!!

Be careful about the standing--not only for the mess. I taught Josiah to stand because it was easier while holding a newborn. However, he would never sit to poop. It was a year long ordeal of training for poop. He just couldn't sit to relax and go for a loooong time. Be careful!

Yay! How exciting! I bought disposables for Max and pullups at target this weekend and about choked when it cost me $60. Ugh.

We are so proud of Mr. Man!! I guess each child has to be ready in his/her own time. Maybe, he'll be close to being trained by June??

I've always heard that boys need to be trained by their fathers.

Have a great day!!! :)
