I'm a Big Kid Now!

Ask me a couple weeks ago if I thought Owen would be almost completely potty trained during the day any time soon and I would have told you absolutely not. For months he has wanted nothing to do with the potty. It was wrestle-mania just to get him to sit on the potty for a second. He would scream and cry. At his wellness visit I described this behavior to the doctor and he told me to stop and try again in a few months.

A couple months passed and my defense that the doctor told me to wait started to weaken. So after a disagreement with Barry, I decided the next day I'd try again. I let Owen run around without a diaper or pull up since he just wets/soils it instead telling me. Later on he started doing the potty dance and asked for a diaper. He was acting scared so I sat down next to his froggy potty and got him to sit down. I read to him and gave him a sheet of stickers to play with. Anyway, I went to go to get him some clothes since we had a play date coming over and came back to find he'd pooped! We cheered and celebrated. I gave him his Hiro train (from Thomas and Friends) that I'd been holding on to for months hoping it would be an incentive.

It's been 2 weeks and he is accident free. Now every time he goes he gets so excited and says, "I did it." So proud of him!


  1. So Cute! And what is with little boys always wanting to be naked? Mine are the same way:) He has the cutest face ever!!!

  2. Yeah for Owen & for mom-no more poop diapers to deal with.
