Potty Training Update - Days 2-5

WOW! I can't believe how fast it's gone.  I'm so far behind in posting, that I'm going to make this a quick recap

Day 2 (Saturday) ~ "Mommy, need a diaper"  This was heard again today during his normal pooping time. When we told him he wore underware and went on the potty, he replied "Need a diaper, so sad about that" with those big eyes filling up with tears. Later in the day, he managed to escape our view for a minute and hide out of site to go poo. Rick caught up with him just 30 seconds after and got Turbo to the potty. He didn't go any more, but it was our first training moment for #2.  As for the pees ~ he stayed dry ALL day again!

Day 3 (Sunday) ~ We decided to brave a family lunch outing since he'd been doing so well.  We went to one of his favorite places, Baja Fresh. This kid loves guacamole and mango salsa!  It's 15 minutes each way, door to door. We had him go potty before we left, then we had a leisurely lunch and came back home.  I was honestly so surprised he didn't have an accident! By the time we got home it had been 1 1/2 hours since his last potty and he'd drank a big milk at lunch!   He went the whole day with no accidents!

Day 4 (Monday) ~ Rick went to work, so the three of us (Turbo, Sweet Pea and I) flew solo for potty training. Guess what, we had a pee accident. He was playing with the games on our iPod Touch and I was making lunch and didn't remember to ask him if he was dry for awhile. When I asked again, we both realized he'd had an accident.  In this moment, I was reminded that this is still new him and that I have to remember to continue asking him and celebrating if he's dry.  As for #2,  he didn't ask for a diaper today! He felt that he had to go and ran into the bathroom. By the time he got there, he had gone in his pants. However, he is making steps in the right direction!

Day 5 (Tuesday) ~ WOOHOO! He made it to the potty for his poop! He actually tried about 5 times to go throughout the day and one time actually went.  By the time he had gotten to the potty he'd gone 1/2 way in his underware, but finished the other half on the potty!!! He was so proud of himself. We celebrated and called Daddy right away.  Another huge milestone today, he went pee in a public potty.  He doesn't like that the flushes are so loud and was very nervous about going. We compromised that he would go, then leave the bathroom and I would flush. It worked for today.  For the next trip, I'll have the portable potty that arrived today. My girlfriend recommended it and it seems to be great. I'll post more about it after Turbo uses it.

Tomorrow is Wednesday. Rick is picking up his parents from the airport for their visit and taking Turbo along. It's 45-60 minutes each way. We thought we'd put a pull-up on him, but Rick doesn't think he needs it. I'm inclined to agree. We'll see how it goes!

No Pull Ups!!! With both of my boys the pull ups hurt the process and didn't help at all! I say just bring extra clothes:) It's just an accident after all:)
