Potty Party

A lovely day

When you have 3 boys, it's hard to not compare them. For instance, by 18 months old, both Charlie and Chance had at least peed in the potty. Chandler, however, has been taking his sweet time. He's now 2 yrs 2 months, and for the last 9 months he's been interested in the potty. He often will take his diaper off and ask for me to sit him on the potty. I've spent countless times coaching him, cheering for him, doing anything I can to encourage some sort of action.

But after 20 seconds on the potty, he hops off, proclaims "All done!" with nothing to show for it.

I have a little potty that migrates to whatever room he's in, as if to remind him he could try again.

So last night, while Chuck was watching tv, and I was on the phone, Chandler took off his diaper, sat on his potty, and went for it. Success!!

He then pulls out the insert, and brings it to me, beaming with pride.

The funny thing is, for all my effort, he chose to do it when I wasn't looking.

Note to self: Stop trying!!

You over achiever! Linden just turned four and is still barely potty trained. I can guarantee I did not even try to put them on the potty until they were at least 2 and that was Hadley who was my first child and that was only because Stefan was telling me that every other 2 year old was potty trained. ha! Love those pics of that sweet boy.
