Potty Training

With a new baby coming, I'd really like to get Oliver out of diapers.  I had considered it in the spring when he was really interested in the potty, but honestly didn't have the energy with packing for our move.  I let the idea go especially when he became disinterested in going potty toward the end of the school year.

Another child at his daycare (the only other one that is near his age) potty trained in the last few weeks and is doing really well.  I figured that perhaps since she was going pee pee in the potty that he might be more into it.  

Riley was in Florida for work most of last week, so I decided to give it a try.  Each day after school I put him in big boy undies.  He had a couple of accidents towards the beginning of the week, but by the end of the week he was doing really well.  His potty celebration dance is the best!
We've used M&Ms as rewards each time he goes and he's made lots of progress already.  He wore big boy underwear all weekend with NO accidents!  (We switched him to pull-ups for naptime and nighttime.  He stayed dry during naptime...not so much at night, but that's to be expected.)  We even went to church with him in big boy underwear...a bit of a risk, but he did it!

We are excited to see how he does at daycare this week and hope that he continues doing so well.  At this rate, we will be able to say bye-bye to the idea of having two kids in diapers come August.
