I was supposed to blog about this last week but since our Internet connection is acting up due to the weather condition, I got side tracked and forgot about it. I am proud and happy to share to you the success that we achieved on EJ's potty training. It took him 6 weeks to finally get used to using the bathroom for his business. Now he can go to bed without using pull ups potty training pants anymore. I am so proud of you EJ!
He now tells me when he has to weewee but whenever he is busy playing or watching TV I have to constantly ask him about it so he won't forget. We are still working on the popo part, he is still a little hesitant in using the toilet, I just have to watch for the clue when he has to go. Ever time he is standing in the corner of the house that is the cue that he is trying to push a log.
For that, we are now awarding this official big kid certificate to our young man Eldon Jennings. Thanks to Chris (my SIL) who suggested on using a small stool for EJ to use so he could use the big toilet. He liked it more than the potty one. I still have to go with him though whenever he weewee and hold it down for him so the pee won't go anywhere lol.
With my daughter, I never had any problem with her. I think the early training helped her to learn it at a young age. I started potty trining Rylie when she was 8 months old so when she she turned 2 years old and nine months, she was completely potty trained.
For those Mommy out there who plans to potty train their kids, it really depends on your child's interest or should I say eagerness to learn,. But you can try as early as possible then if they are not ready yet, don't force it. I tried and failed so many times with EJ but when he turned three, we talked and explained to him that he is getting big for diapers. I am glad that he understood us. It would be a big savings too, Imagine 9 bucks for a diaper every week. So we could save almost forty bucks a month for it.
