In Their Time

For MONTHS I've been attempting to potty train Christopher (and Lydia). After Christmas both just decided to wear underwear and have been doing WONDERFUL (minus Lydia's pee-pee on the floor Friday and BMs).

On Saturday Christopher was pottying and then announced, "I have to make a stinky." And then just out of the blue climbed on the potty and did "the deed"!! Brian and I were in and out of the room getting cleaned up for the day and Christopher did it all on his own....

Last night during choir practice I had both Lydia and Chris announce that they had to potty. I took BOTH up to the nursery bathroom and they BOTH made BMs in the potty....

I've been offering the kids all sorts of "prizes" for this BIG event!! LOL But really it needed to happen "in their time"!!!

I'm sure if I would have kept track of when they usually had their BMs I could ahve scooped them up and given them this "victory"! But would they have continued????

I LOVE that they BOTH have shown initiative int his area:) I look forward to a cleaner and less diaper dependent week. But I'm also have low expectations with a goal to encourage even MORE!!

So here's to our NEW week!!!! Happy Monday everyone:)

I guess I'll know soon enough what it's like to potty train 2 at once. :)

Oh, goodness... never called it easy... definently messy! But once I gave them the reins (so to speak) it has been a little easier:)
