:: potty time ::

Picture taken right after T's first successful "dropping off of the kids at the pool" (he is excitedly telling daddy all about it on the phone.)

Okay, so it wasn't THAT bad!

In was pretty smooth sailing teaching Tate how to use the "big boy potty." Tate and I spent the better part of the first week in the bathroom, having quality potty time together. I don't think we left the house at all for that week, let alone the bathroom. It was fun teaching Tate all about using the potty and that gas (which Tate calls "grass" while waving his hand in the air to show that it is just that) is not one of them. I love that he calls his business "yellow" or "BIG poops!" And yes, the automatic flushing toilets do cause a big scare. After two weeks of continual trips to the bathroom, positive reinforcement, little chocolate chips, and running around the house naked he is officially potty trained. =)

What a good little boy I have!!!

that's great, and naked is the way to go, that is how I trained my youngest two. A undershirt and nothing else.

I'm so glad it wasn't too bad for ya! I think I just don't handle things well. We could experience the same thing and you would be just fine and I would have a melt-down!
Anyways, I'm proud of Tate (and you). He is so adorable and getting so big :(

Um yeah, that's the right way to do it. I have regressed as a mother. It's time to get on the ball here! Yay Tate!
