. . . i see Logan’s underpants!! YAY! I took the plunge and decided it was high time to potty train Logan. He has been showing interest for awhile (which I believe is the MOST important step — what’s the use in forcing a kid who is not ready) and I’m tired of buying diapers for two.. Since Dave had the day off, it worked out nicely to have him assist me. I used the same method that used with Conner; it is based off the book “Toilet Training in Less Than a Day.” As I write this the day after training, I would say that it worked quite well. I’m not going to lie, yesterday morning I was just about ready to give up, but with Dave’s help we persevered and it totally paid off.
It was a day full of underpants checks, “racing” (like a race car) to the potty, and phone calls. Part of the training process is having the child call people/characters who he looks up to after going potty. We were able to talk to Lightning McQueen (Aunt Meggie), Doc (Daddy), the King (Grandpa T.), and Sally (Aunt Ali) — thanks to all those willing participants we were able to make it a thrilling day of “Cars” characters. And we only went through 2 pairs of underpants. Even though it seems my life is a lot more complicated right now, I know in a few weeks (when all the kinks are worked out) it will be awesome to have only ONE kid in diapers. I am so proud of my little guy and I can tell he is so proud and happy with himself, he really thinks he is a BIG BOY now!
