Yes, you read that right. We started another potty training attempt this weekend, and things are going much better this time around. I won't reveal all my potty secrets, but this attempt involves large quantities of Matchbox cars, Swedish fish, and a ceremonial/symbolic purging of all Size 6 diapers from the house. Dylan is actually telling us when he has to go (I can tell he hates it when we ask so we are trying to back off and let him tell us when he's ready), and he seems quite pleased with himself (both good signs!)

Today we had a major potty breakthrough - he has been completely dry all day, including a mall outing and naptime. I have a feeling we will be doing pull-ups at night for a while but staying dry during the day would be great.

I will spare you the rest of the graphic details. It's still early, so I don't want to get my hopes up too much but I think this will be the final attempt even if it takes a while to get to 100%. Thanks for caring about my kid's pee/poop! :)


  1. hooray! i bet you're excited! i'll keep my fingers crossed that it continues to go well!
