Silas was potty trained very early. (Granted he still wets the bed EVERY SINGLE night. The doctor told me that because he's such a sound sleeper his body doesn't produce whatever hormone it is that slows down urine production in other people. ) We lived in Uganda and he ran around like everyother Ugandan toddler...naked. I guess that's why he potty trained so easily. I think he was done with daytime diapers by 19months or so.
Hattie was easy too. I think she just loved to dress herself and she wanted to wear panties. And she loved to sit on her little potty while Silas sat on the other one. She was about 20 months.
Luke is a different story. He was 2 August 31st. He at first was terrified of the potty. More recently he will sit on the potty but not do anything. Then the last few weeks he will say, "I'm peeing a little bit right now, Mom." or "Don't come over here, I'm pooping in my diaper." Oh, and when I take his diaper off he wants another one on immediately. So, I think its time to work on this.
Today I decided he was not going to wear a diaper while we were home. He did pretty good. Until at one point I told him to go sit on the potty and he just started peeing on the carpet...while I was stuck on the couch nursing Millie.
Can you picture it? Can you hear me? SCREAMING - Stop, stop, stop. Then poor Millie starts crying because I scared her. Then Luke starts crying because he thinks he's in trouble. Ok, now its kind of funny.
I got him new Lightening McQueen undies...who cares? I bought some Diego Pullups...no big deal. He is just different from Hattie and Silas. And that is fine. I love that he's different. He's so funny. So, I can be patient as he is figuring out this potty training thing.
Oh well. We'll keep trying.
