if you don't like poop talk, you probably want to stop reading here.
and if you do (who doesn't? except the person who just stopped reading), here's the rundown for DAY ONE: 2 pee accidents in the morning. still no poop by naptime (and he always poops by naptime). woke up with a dry diaper(!) and soon after pooped in the potty!!! a crazy house party broke out after this. no more accidents all afternoon and right before bed peed for the first time in the potty. success. a very looong day though. he got really sick of me asking him so much if he has to pee. and even told me a couple times, "i need some space, mama". where did he even learn that? whatever.
m&m's for peeing in the potty...
a present for pooping in the potty...
watching "elmo goes potty"...
trying. where we spent most of our day.
outside. where we spent the rest of our day.
dinner. finally. means it's almost bedtime.
DAY 2 - Monday
i don't even know what is happening here:
one pee accident today outside. poop made it in the potty before nap. we even did a (much needed) family outing to house of yogurt tonight and wallace made it back with dry underwear. he wouldn't pee before bed and will probably have a puffy diaper in the morning. i'm noticing he's getting sick of me making him sit on the potty so much. tomorrow i'm gonna let him choose when to go. should get interesting...
DAY 3 - Tuesday
Shit. Yes, that’s right. On his bedroom floor. I left him naked in his room while putting Skye down for her nap. I came out and saw his legs dangling off the toilet downstairs. What a good boy…. I thought. And then I saw the log. At least he realized what happened and where he should have been. “Sawwy Mama” he says as I walked down. He’s so sweet. They say the 3rd day is supposed to be the worst. Ok, I made that up. He did wake up dry from the night before and emptied his bladder in the toilet after waking. But he also peed in his closet later in the day. You win some you lose some. Tomorrow is a new day.
DAY 4 - Wednesday
Rian took us out to breakfast this morning and after Wallace pooped in the potty at home, we ventured out to H&M to enjoy the kids sale. Both outings a success. If the day ended at 4:30 I would be telling you it was the best day yet. But it doesn't end at 4:30. And around that time all hell broke loose with 2 accidents in a row (first ones of the day) and meltdowns all around. Serious meltdowns. Both kids. But Rian came home early (I told him the Laker game was on waiting for him) and then 7pm came pretty quickly. Now I will sip some wine (perhaps the whole bottle) and watch our netflix movie. Delightful.
DAY 5 - Thursday
Wallace is getting good at realizing he's about to have an accident. Famous lines are "uh oh, gotta go!" right when he feels pee about to come. Or yelling "Mama, some poop is coming out!". That one will be fun to hear in the library. Or during church prayer time. Tonight while being tucked in he says he has to go potty. We thought he was playing us but sure enough he gets on the toilet and goes. A pretty good day. We also met some friends for an Easter egg hunt. And what's a good hunt without a pee break in the bushes?
