Thursday night I put out 10 pairs of underwear and 5 pairs of soft and ease to slide off/on pants. I also had some rags and cleanser ready for the accidents. Of course we had the step-stool and potty seat.
Friday morning I went into get Turbo. He was happy as usual and ready to start the day. I decided to start with underwear after breakfast so he would be able to run to the potty when needed. After breakfast and a little play, I told him that today was the day we were going to go on the potty. Now I should say that for the previous 3 days, I told him that he would be going pee/poo on the potty starting Friday. Still, he seemed a bit surprised, but I was already pulling down his pants and removing his diaper. I decided to leave off his underwear for a bit to help reinforce that something was different - plus, 2 year olds LOVE to be naked. He was so excited about being without pants that he took off his shirt too. I have some adorable pictures of that little tushy running around, but cropped them for a little privacy. It wasn't long before we put the underwear on, but it was a fun transition for him.
The day went super easy! Rick and I kept saying we must be missing something it's going so well! There was one time that Turbo was on his own, Rick was occupied with Sweet Pea and I was cleaning up the lunch dishes, all of a sudden we hear the toilet lid go up and the sound of him peeing all on his own. WOOHOO. There was two times during the day that he asked for a diaper. We're assuming because he had to poo. Of course we told him that he was a big boy now and wore underwear and went on the potty. He managed to hold it in the entire day. So as bedtime approached, we celebrated a wonderful and successful day potty training. No fighting, No whining and No Accidents. It was a dream day.
Since I'm behind in posting, I'll soon be posting about Day 2. Stay tuned to see if the 2nd day went as smoothly as the first.
