Random Picture Challenge



The Challenge today from 4 Little Men and Girly Twins is September 2008 (9th folder) and 18th picture!

I was actually giggling when I saw this picture... not much has changed!!! Here is Christopher in Big Boy Pants on the phone telling Grandma that he made a "stinkY" in the potty.... let's say Grandma and Grammie are still getting sporadic calls from Chris "celebrating"....



It's NOT that he doesn't know how... maybe he doesn't know "when" OR he's just NOT motivated. I haven't figured it out yet....

After Anna's constipation issues when she was potty training, I MUCH more laid back with #2 with Christopher. Anna took a while (and many tears b/c I pushed her too hard) before she just "got it" one day. And once she initiated #2 on the potty we were finished with potty training. So, I'm giving Christopher PLENTY of opportunities to get to the potty for a success and hoping his "got it" day comes SOON... with not many messes until then.... LOL

And we'll continue to encourage him and celebrate in the small successes!

BTW... each kid is soo different. My little Lydia (was 2 in January) potty trained herself in early February. She does all of her messes in the potty. In the morning she takes herself to the bathroom and changes out of her completely DRY diaper!! The overnight dryness has been happening for a MONTH... she's totally the opposite to my full diaper in the morning Little Boy:)

As the mom to three boys, I can so relate! All of mine were "hard" from what I understand compared to others. It's such an accomplishment isn't it. Cute photo!

I know the feeling. I wrote a post on our "training" of our oldest. He finally GOT IT!!!! :)

Cute pic. My daughter also had constipation issues and it made potty training quite a struggle!

I'm the Nonna getting the excited phone calls. She's done so well the last two weeks, so we're hoping that it's a done deal. What memories! Precious pic!

Cute picture!! My boys seemed to be really hard to potty train....especially compared to some of my friend's little girls! They are all different though, that is for sure!

Ahhh, so true, each child is so different! My girls were pretty easy to train, I guess we'll see about baby #3 :)

I love how he calls Grandma to let her know! My girls do the same (not with potty training, but you know).
