Some Success

I can finally say potty training is going well. For long time blog readers, you know this is a big deal! We moved the diaper changing table out of the house just before Thanksgiving. Colin's had a few accidents since then. Anna's been solid since school started. Should I start ducking the lightning bolts now?

Colin still needs some reminding, and we often say, "Listen to your body..." That can be hard when you're in the middle of playing something really fun.

The other day, though, Colin jumped up and said, "Oh, I have to tinkle!" Then, "I can hear my bum!"

When nature calls, you gotta listen...

Congratulations! Man, I dream of the day when I can say all my kids are potty trained. Cole hasn't really even started yet. Every once in a blue moon he'll announce a bodily function that he just performed, and I can count on one hand how many times he's deposited something in his potty. Faith is about 80% now (major regressing on her part). Yesterday I went to the grocery store and a large part of my bill (and basket) was diapers/wipes:( Getting the kids potty-trained will be like getting a pretty decent raise!

Wow, the changing table is gone?!? Congrats!

Really glad it's going well. Luke tends to be lazy sometimes and will dance around clutching his willy rather than actually go to the toilet.

Congrats! It sure is exciting when you can finally say goodbye to diapers for good.

The same is on my horizon. Noah was a "breeze" so I'm sure I'm in for a rocky road the second time around...
