Potty Insanity

So to prove that I am absolutely insane I decided to start pottey training the same time I decided to redo the laundry room. Uh... Yeah... Nuts I know. I just can't help myself. I have crazy amounts of patience when it comes to situations. You know; tantrums, long lines, annoying people. However I have no patience when it comes to things I want or want to do. I've wanted to do this for a while.

Lol.. I just erased a super long rant about messy diapers because it seemed a bit too gross, so let's just say I'm tired of changing messy diapers. Munchkin is 32 months old now and I know some will say wait till he's 3, but I can't wait. He'll be 3 in only four months and I figure not much will change in that time.

Anyway, I've googled like crazy (haven't read any books because I feel like you can find anything on the net). I've found some great info and some funny stories. So armed with some fun potty books for Munchkin, the Elmo Potty DVD, a sticker chart, big boy undies, and a few potty chairs... We started. So far things are going. He hasn't been in a diaper in almost two weeks, only pull-ups when we leave the house and nap/bedtime. We've gone from quite a few accidents to only one per day. At some point I have to ease up on taking him to the potty and let him tell me (which he hasn't done yet), I don't see that happening in the near future.

Wish me luck... No seriously I need it. Do you have any advice or funny stories about potty training? I'd love to hear them. Thanks for reading.



  1. Oh BOY. I just finished potty training my son and it was a long long long road. One that stopped and started a gazillion times. I finally listened to my mom (why are they always right??) and let him figure things out on his own. Ugh. It seemed as soon as I stopped pushing him, he "figured" it out. I could have saved myself three months of "He is going to be wearing diapers forever!" Good luck and with patience on your side everything will work out!

  2. Thank you, lol... its only been two weeks and I'm ready to throw in the towel. I think i'm going to ease up a bit or i'm pretty sure the both of us will hate eachother ;) j/k.
