I decided it was time. He is 21 months old. Slowly but surely he is getting the hang of things. Luckily, I've had very few messes to clean up. He's done great. For the first 2 days, he would sit on the potty for up to 1 1/2 hours before he would finally go. Now, he'll go every time he sits down and within a few minutes. He gets so excited. We flush, and wave by to the pee. Do a little dance. Its so cute. Progress right! He still doesn't tell me when he has to go, but as long as I take him every so often, he'll go. He's dry after naps. He was even dry in the morning one day. That has NEVER happened since the day he was born. I am so proud of this little boy. And wow does he ever look cute in his little gitch (i'll post a pic soon)
I'm glad I decided to do it earlier. I know alot of people say, kids are just not ready till after they're 2 or 3. Well, I call bull on that one. I really don't believe its the kids who are not ready, its the parents who are not ready to commit to it. I know we've got a road ahead of us with this yet, but I'm determined that it'll work. In most countries other than ours, kids are out of diapers way sooner. They find us to be disgusting, by how long we keep our kids in diapers. And if you really think about it, it is gross.
Anyway, just had to post about my baby, who is growing up in so many ways.
