Whoo hooo! I got a bit overzealous with wanting to start potty training Devon AND IZZY with a 5 week old at home. Really Jeanne? That was a bit over reaching. Well, I did not really realize that until we were in the thick of it. But let me rewind to the beginning.
We have received so many pairs of undies for Devon from our friends and Devon picked out some for himself months ago. But, Isabelle had no special underwear or any underwear for that matter to start her newest journey of being diaper free. So, off to Target we went.
At first, Devon was excited about giving her some of his favorites. He is really good at that!
The following day was POTTY PARTY!
Both kids picked out the inaugural pair and we put them on. Izzy walked around with only her Dora's on and Devon picked out a lovely pair of Thomas (well James) pants.
My thought was to go with the three day method. (Where you put underwear on, feed the kids tons of water and wait) Well, Devon had a few successes and Izzy...well, lets just say she was oblivious to any of the tinkles. After two accidents, we went right back to the diaper. She was so not ready. Devon was doing pretty good. I think if I would have kept with it, he would be flying diaper free right now. But, my complete oversight of Corbin was hindering our attempts. When "GO TIME" happened, I just could not leave Corbin. There were so many tears and crying from Corbin that it really stressed me out.
So, we aborted our party by noon. I suspect that in a few more weeks when Corbin becomes a bit more predictable we will try again. This time with only Devon. I think he will catch on right away then. Since our party, he has asked about once or twice a day to use the potty. So, he is getting it.
