Life is clicking along nicely now that the drama and trauma of quitting my job has settled a bit. We have a lot coming up in the next couple of weeks, but right now we're celebrating a huge milestone for our younger offspring. To put it in his words, Ethan went pee pee in the potty!
Potty training Abby was a fairly painless, though lengthy, process. Her daycare did the lion's share of the work. Plus she's a girl so the procedure's a cut and dry one. But I have been dreading this stage with Ethan since we knew he was going to be a boy. I have no idea how to tackle it! For the last couple of months, we have been excitedly talking about the potty, hoping to incite interest. He's more than happy to talk about everyone else going, but when we mention his participation, we always get a flat "No." Finally, Matt decided to try a training potty. Genius! Ethan LOVES it. He hangs out there all the time. And he has actually used it for its intended purpose--one time, but whatever! We'll take our victories where we can find them. And yes, maybe he has peed on the bathroom floor too, but as my friend Marla pointed out, at least he got the right room.
