Potty Training

Standard

I’m totally intimidated by the thought… but Manny will be 3 next month and we have a baby coming this summer… it’s time. I’m listening to a Keane song right now and the chorus is chanting at me… “I waited a long long time… I waited a long long time…” This is how I feel about potty training… I’ve been meaning to get around to it for a while now… but I keep putting it off… it’s never just the right time… ha. I don’t know why I’m so intimidated by this… maybe it’s the convenience of diapers… you don’t have to rush to find a bathroom “Right Now!” and you don’t have to worry about peeĀ on the carpet or poop in the car seat… diaper are convenient… but it’s time… eh…

I’ve had many different techniques recommended to me…

*Let him go around without pants on…

*Seclude yourselves for a weekend and take him to the bathroom every 10 minutes…

*Put him in underwear so he won’t like the feel of pee in his pants and take him to the bathroom often…

*Etc…

So… it you have any brilliant advise… pass it along… I swear I’m going to start this process soon!
