Potty training update...

I feel kinda funny making so many posts about potty training...but that is my life right now, and I have had a few people ask...so without further ado....here is how potty training is going...and needless to say...I'm exaustified with it....but holding strong. I have spent many hours sitting on a chair outside this little bathroom, talking to this little boy....

I am the same way....feeling rather strange posting about potty training, but hey it is documenting it and could possibly helping someone else out. Skylar seems to be doing great and when his older brother gets home it will hopefully help too (because us single mom's can't exactly teach little boys like another boy can).
Keep up the good work mom...you are doing great too!

Hi, just wanted to say I ran across your blog today off My Charming Kids, I was intrigued by the birth mom story and have spent the last two hours or so reading back to the beginning of your story. What you did for your little boy as well as R & B is a wonderful, hard, brave thing.

My husband and I lost our first child last year - he came too early because of preeclampsia which resulted in HELLP syndrome, so I know how that can be scary. Anyway, we still hope to be able to have a child the old fashioned way. If that does not work out, I hope we run across someone with the kind of heart you have, to love all your children, and to make the best decisions you can for them.

I just found your blog and read back through Ty's birth story and you signing the papers.

I am in tears. You are so brave and courageous! I'm now following your blog!

Good luck with potty training! My kids are both potty trained (my youngest at 18 months, crazy!) thankfully it was easy for us but I've seen some kids that are not so easy!

hello dear one. on the potty training front...I am a bit on the liberal side. I have four grown children and am a former "Parent Educator" in a program called "Parents as Teacher's". Depending how close this little guy is to 4...I would forget it for a while. Some kids (boys more common) do not get serious about potty training until close to 4 and some into the 4th year. The hardest part is for you because people start to question your parenting if your child isn't potty trained by around 2. You can continue to talk about the process and give him some "power" in the process by telling him to let you know when he would like to go in the potty....even offering some kind of simple reward if he "decides" to go in the potty. I would NOT be disapproving at all (if you can pull it off) and try to become more matter of fact without making this such a huge deal. My oldest daughter, now 23 and completely potty trained :) was just a little over 4 when she was daytime potty trained and almost 5 for nighttime success. Good luck and I pray for you all the time. :)
