Three months ago (exactly!), I wrote about my struggle to potty train Thomas. While things aren't perfect, they have improved! He does great telling me when he has to pee-pee and very rarely has an accident (even at night). His favorite place to potty is on the grass! This is actually very convenient when we are running errands. More than once, I've stopped at a church or an empty parking lot and let him go to the potty. You don't have to worry about finding a potty indoors when you have a little boy and you don't have to worry about aim when he is outside! :-)
Unfortunately, our struggle isn't over with the other part of potty training. He would still rather go in his pants than in the potty! Is this frustrating?! Absolutely!! He has been wearing underwear since my last post and we talk everyday about how he needs to go in the potty and not in his pants, but he still won't do it. And yes, he is very aware of when he has to go. He never does it in public or in front of us. Normally, he goes into his room and comes back out a few minutes later to tell me what he did.
I really don't think he is scared to go in the potty, because he has went a couple of times. He did it last week because I found him right before he went in his pants. While he didn't want to go in the potty, he did with no problem. I often wonder if this has become an issue of disobedience or if he just isn't ready yet. The big three-year-old birthday comes next month and I really would like him to be completely potty trained!
Any advise from my blog readers?
