For Journaling Purposes...not to gross you out


Remember back in this post when I "journaled" about Patrick deciding it was time to potty train? But also stating that he wouldn't do the #2? Well, that was how many months ago? Oh, that's right, almost 3.
The advice I had gotten from everyone whose sons had done the same thing said it would take months and to just put him in a diaper when it was time. So, we did. He went one time on the potty like a month ago but didn't want anything to do with it again.

Until...

2 days ago!!! I didn't want to post this so soon but when he did it 2 days in a row, multiple times I think I am in the clear. WAHOO!!

What was the big change? A weird book that I wasn't go to read to him. My friend had given us 2 books and even said the one was a bit different-she was right and I wouldn't read it to him for a while. But, we gave in...you will try anything to see if it works. The book is called Once Upon A Potty by Alona Frankel. Strange book, I am telling you but when Patch said he needed to "poo-poo like Joshua" I turned into quite the advocate for the book.



Anyway, good job buddy!
