Potty Training Update...

I've never cleaned up so much poop in my entire life!! Ugh!

Honestly, Charlie has done really, really well with potty training....with the key word being POTTY! After spending a day following his bare bottom, he was pretty much pee trained. He has been wearing underwear and has had only a couple pee accidents. He even has been waking up dry in the morning...Woo Hoo!!

The poop training, on the other hand, has been a NIGHTMARE!

I'll just say that a newly potty trained kid combined with a week long stomach bug (icky, smelly, runny, messy diarreah) is just not good. Yup, definitely not good. :(

I have forgotten how annoying the side aspects of potty training are. My bathrooms are much dirtier these days and Clorox Wipes are my new best friend. I have also been spending my time on "pulling your own shorts up and down" training, "hold your own pee-pee down" training, "wash your hands really, really good" training, and "flushing is not scary" training.

It feels great to be almost done, but it is so hard to believe that our baby has gotten to be such a big boy!!

Wasn't this just yesterday???

Awww.. what a cute picture!

I get your picture of your nightmares and I kinda know the feeling!! Little Jeremy is now drinking some formula in his milk along with food and now his poops are bigger, thicker and very smelly!! Thank goodness for those baking soda disposal bags! LOL!!

Good luck and maybe you need to start read that "poop time" book that I have seen out there! LOL!
