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!!
