I have put off potty training Eli for far too long. All the others were potty trained long before now (3 years and a few months). I tried with him the first week of Summer but he did not want anything to do with it; wouldn’t even step into the bathroom with undies on. I figured we’d have to wait until he told me he was ready — the problem: he starts preschool the end of August and he needs to be potty trained for that.
I kept looking at my calendar and knew we’d wait at least until after California, but I just couldn’t see a week where we didn’t have anything that would allow us to just be home training. I woke up one day and just decided instead of changing his diaper I would put on some undies. Turned out to be a fairly simple training. He’s only had a few accidents and is what we say a “potty-pro.” In fact, Conner asked me if all of the kids were this easy to potty train, I had to answer NO. I’ve been so impressed with him and am thrilled to be done with diapers and on our way to having all 4 kids using the potty.
