Over the past week, my 3 year old has become potty trained (daytime only). Yay! I'm so excited about this because let's face it, having more than one in diapers at a time stinks (pardon the pun), especially when you know that the older one of the 2 is perfectly capable of using a toilet. And now that he's a week dry I feel I can celebrate it. I really don't have anything new to offer to the "how to train your child" mix. I think finding the right motivation helps. With this one, it was the Ikea playplace. Ikea won't let any kids in who aren't trained yet (no pull-ups either). He was very jealous of his older brother getting to go in and he couldn't. So sure, I made sure we made one more visit to Ikea to boost him along. And today is celebration day. After lunch we are headed to Ikea where I will drop the 2 of them off for 45 minutes of playtime and I will get to shop with just the baby in tow.
So what's the danger? Well, you see this particular child has a habit of crawling into bed with us in the middle of the night. He also talks in his sleep. So one night last week I woke up to the sound of, "but I'm a big boy now, I don't wear diapers" followed by the distinct sound of his night diaper tab being ripped off. Yikes! Needless to say that was the last night I put a diaper on him at night - he's been wearing night pull-ups ever since.
