Someone in this house is HALFWAY trained!!!! (Who would have ever guessed that I would be excited about Luke being halfway potty trained...but I am!) We have successfully stayed dry for a while now and Luke will go out of his way to let us know if he has to go potty when we are out and about! Whooo-hooo! And it's about time! But wait, I say halfway for a reason. We have been super successful with #1, but #2 is another story. He will sit on the potty forever and say it's broken and he can't go and then go into his room for nap time and uh... yeah, apparently it works just fine in his room when he has a pull-up on. But, I'm not going to ruin this moment with that minor problem. It doesn't really bother me because it's in his pull-up and I figure he won't want to go in his pull-up for the rest of his life right?...
To say that I am excited about this is the understatement of the year. This is huge! This whole potty training thing has been so hard with this child (not to mention taken almost a year). Way harder than it was with Caleb. Luke will not be manipulated, bribed, or pushed into anything. That will be a wonderful attribute when he is a teenager, but not so great for an almost 3 1/2 year old who isn't potty trained! So yeah, I am thrilled!
I must give all the credit for this incredible feat to Mr. Lovey Mad! He now has trained 1 and a half children all by himself. That man is everything I'm not - calm, cool, collected and patient! I should rent him out as a Personal (potty) trainer. You should see the dollar signs in my eyes!!
