potty train express!


I sure was dreading potty training Charlie. His third birthday was in April and things were busy. I knew May was around the corner and SUPER busy with older brother having t-ball, swimming and the end of school. So we had passed that "magical" age of potty training (which I believed was 6 weeks before one turns 3) and I thought we were going to be in trouble! If you have been reading our blog for a while, you may remember Luke jumping aboard the potty train and it was a breeze! Easiest kid we've ever potty trained. Oh, wait, he was the only child at that point! Anyway, it was SO easy with him, that I was terrified of what would happen with Charlie. . .

BUT, shock of all shockers, he was even easier!! Didn't know that was possible, but he was. We had 2 accidents on Day 3 and that was the only tough day! We trained him by sitting and less than 2 weeks into it, he's already standing. In less than a week, Charlie had already conquered the automatic public flushing potties. In less than a week, (Mimi's or Nana's or friends without boys or kids you may want to skip the next few lines) he had managed to pee in a cup in the car (under dire circumstances) and also peed for the first time in the grass, with good aim and hoping to win the "furthest shot contest." Yes, we are proud boy parents and SO VERY proud of our little Chuckles!! He jumped aboard the Potty Train Express!!!!



As with Luke, Charlie had a potty train chart. He got to put a sticker on the chart for every time he successfully pottied! Once he finished his chart, which was yesterday, he was able to go pick out any toy he wanted. He's been planning this for a long time (even prior to potty training) and was thrilled to venture to Target to get the oh-so-coveted. . .

Glowing Lightsaber!!!


No, you can't see him, but you can see his outline and his most prized possession!!! A Jedi Master in the making!

Yippy! Though I have to say I am sooo jealous. I thought K was going to be our easiest. He was 95% potty trained in Feb-he mostly did it all on his own. Then we went on vacation and it has been in decline since then. Now we are 100% not potty trained :( But it seems we might be back on track. Maybe I need to make a potty train sticker chart.

Hi there! I'm in the middle of making a potty training chart for my boy (2yrs 8months) and came across your potty-train-chart. Thanks for the cute idea!

When I potty trained my daughter, she had just turned two and I had just had my son. What was I thinking! I had clearly lost my tiny mind. This time my boy is two and half and has a habit of taking his nappy off shouting "POOOO. POOO!" so he's obviously ready!
