Until about a week ago the thought of potty training had not even crossed my mind! I thought that was something that we'd worry about when he was closer to three..... or maybe never?? Ha ha. I have to admit I have been in no hurry whatsoever for Drew to be toilet trained since diapers are so easy right now. And with a newborn to care for, I am REALLY not liking the idea of doing this right now since it's another level of complexity I just don't need at this point.
But lately we've had several people tell us that he's showing signs of readiness. I had no idea these were signs of anything except being a trouble making two-year old, but then again I am completely clueless about this process so Drew could have walked right up to me and in a man-voice said, "Mother, I am ready to be potty trained now," and I still would not have gotten it.
One thing he's been doing for a long time now is that he'll go hide somewhere when he's pooping and he doesn't want anybody to look at him while he does it. Like he needs his "privacy" or something. Apparently this is a sign and I didn't know this. But more recently he's starting to decide when his diapers are dirty and he'll strip down and take everything off and start looking for a clean diaper to put on. This means he may pee once in a diaper and whip it off. I'm not liking this at all since we just bumped him up to Size 6 and you get way less in a package so these things are getting pricey! We kept him in size 5s until it was no longer physically possible to attach the tabs on the sides, ha ha! They were just hanging by a thread. Maybe potty training is worth it just for the economics alone....
So anyway we bought him a potty and we'll have to do some reading on the internet to figure out how to do this. I have NO idea where to even begin. This is the potty we got him: it has over 300 positive reviews on Amazon.
