Potty Training-Day 1

Well, today is the day I finally decided to bite the bullet and try potty training for real. I had wanted to wait until Spring Break when I wasn't babysitting for a couple days in a row but I started thinking too much about it and worrying about it and decided I need to just get it over with. I was pretty sure James was really ready but worried that I was wrong.

James woke up at 7:00 and we put on undies. From 7-9 he did great. We had lots to drink and some extra snacks. Then I put Corbin down for his morning catnap. From 9-10 we went through 6 pairs of undies! I guess the extra drinks started to catch up with him. I expected the whole day to be like this as he tried to figure out how to get to the bathroom BEFORE it happened. Then at 10:00 we were reading a book and I was about to go get Corbin up and James said "potty!". We ran to the potty and he did #1 and #2 with NO accident! I was so excited. From then until nap time we went outside to play and played in the house for awhile and James asked to go potty and didn't have any accidents the whole time. I put him in a diaper for nap and sat down to relax for a little bit (oh, and did a load of laundry so we would be ready for the rest of the day)!

This afternoon wasn't as good as the late morning but not as bad as the early morning. We went through 3 pairs of underwear this afternoon (more laundry after bedtime) but each time they were just a little wet so...improvement, right?!

Well, at the end of today I am not scared about tomorrow but I don't feel super confident about tomorrow either. I guess we'll just see how it goes!
