Cause for Celebration!


Nephew went potty today! He's 2 1/2 and has been slow with each of his developmental milestones. He likes to get things on the first shot. If he doesn't, he gets frustrated. He's had a potty for some time now. He likes to sit on the potty and flush, but he never took off his pants. Today, my mother asked him if he wanted to use the potty. He just said yes, pulled down his pants, sat down and did his thing! We're so proud of him. We'll see if it takes, but he's been telling everyone he used the potty. So, if positive encouragement means anything, he'll be potty-trained in no time. Of course, we all know that positive encouragement helps, but he'll learn as quickly as he wants to. It's a long process. I don't blame him. It must be nice to go about your business while doing your business. Plus, he doesn't have to get up out of a nice warm bed at night to go into a freezing bathroom. One of the first heartbreaks of growing up...

I'm jealous. My kids don't like to potty train. They'll only do it when it's almost time for school. As in after 3 years old. They'll practice a little bit, just long enough to make me hopeful, and then they'll go back to wearing diaper when they know they knew how to potty.
