Potty training eve **warning – this post contains a picture of a poo


Tonight we change our toddler into his last night time diaper and say farewell to the changing mat.  Tomorrow when Joey wakes up he will be stripped of his diaper and placed on the potty and there’s no turning back.

What have I gotten myself into?  I mean, I know it’s time.  He’s ready.  We’ve been amping up this day for weeks.  Why am I not ready?

We created this child in September 2013, he was frozen for a whole year before we met again, and now he’s this crazy talkative and bright little man.  He’s not tiny anymore.  He’s my big boy.  I don’t know if I am emotionally ready for this but I will pretend to be strong for him so we can get through this.

OK, I think I’ve finished my pity party.  Thanks for joining me for that.  I’d love to hear your experiences (the good the bad and the ugly), any tips, words of encouragement, or something particularly funny to get me through the next week.

Oh…and about that warning of a poo picture.  Joey finally successfully pooped in the potty the other day but last night…well…he had other plans for that poo.

  1. Potty training.. ah my best friend.
    have loads of patience, make a big deal out of every success and if he has accidents, ask him to help clean up.. say stuff like oh oh, you had an accident, its ok.. tomorrow we will do better.. but for now, we clean up and ask him to get the cleaning cloth etc.
    And biggest thing, be aware there will be regressions.. my son was perfectly potty trained and then we had accidents…. it was the 3rd year molars cutting through , or some weird growth spurt.. for ur part, have patience.. it takes almost 6 months to be completely accident free, so hang in there 🙂
