What's been going on...

So, we have a lot to catch up on. Here is a list of things I want to tell you all about:

1. Potty training update.
2. My 6 day trip to Cabo San Lucas
3. What I'm working on at work
4. What Lil'D has been up to
5. My new favorite thing

So, I will go into the progress of Lil'D's potty training. Lil'D will be 3 in June. There is very little progress. We have been potty training now for 14 weeks. He is still in training pants. He won't tell us when he has to go pee, he definitely won't tell us when he has to go poop. He does not like to go potty. He is really good about staying dry all day if I keep him going to the potty every hour or so. When we go somewhere like the zoo or Disneyland, he is great about going potty and staying dry. He just doesn't ask to go. He hides to go poop. He doesn't care about rewards or praising. We have done it all. He knows what he is doing because once he goes he asks for clean pants. He has even gone as far as going and getting the clean pants and bringing them to me. He is very much one to want to be in total control. I am at his mercy to decide that he wants to go poop in the potty and to decide to ask to go potty at all. I am trying to be patient and am very open to any advise.

Here are a few things about Lil'D's potty adventures:

I found them at Baby Best Buys online for $1.25 each.

  • Here is the potty seat I use at public restrooms. I love this thing. It keeps bottoms and hands off of those public toilets!!

I think we bought ours from Right Start.

I just found it at Great Baby Products for $9.88 plus shipping.

  • When we go to Disneyland or the zoo these are the pull ups I use. He is really good about keeping these dry, but when he decides to poop, it's easy clean up on the go.

I still have to use diapers for naps and nighttime. Every now and then he is super great about staying dry during a nap and overnight. But he still has to wear them.
