Potty Training

We’ve been potty training for what seems like forever. Part of the deal is that I generally lack enthusiam for it.  I don’t really have issues with the diapers and potty training creates a lot more anxiety for me.  I really shouldn’t complain, we have a terrific day care and they do most of the lifting on this one.  I’m sure that we are making this harder because of the inconsistency at home.  At school, he’s always in underwear; but at home sometimes he’s in diapers & sometimes he is in underwear.  So, he has a fair amount of accidents at home and I can’t really blame him.  And we don’t get upset with him (unless he pee’s on daddy’s chair which is a Big Deal) and ask him to tell us when he needs to go.

I’m not really sure what the definition of trained is.  Are you done potty training when you don’t have to ask him if he needs to go to the bathroom?  When you have 100% confidence that he can manage this himself?

    It is definitely a long process. Eli has been wearing underwear all the time for a few months now, but it has only been the last couple of weeks that he has started telling us when he needs to pee (he has been telling us when he needs to poop for several months.) Before, we just made sure we took him to the bathroom regularly. We used to set the timer on the stove so we wouldn’t forget and end up with an accident. I don’t know if there are any “rules” to determine when they are trained. Our babysitter definitely helped tremendously because she is VERY consistent and she has a routine. We don’t function like that at home so it also took us awhile to be consistent.
