Adventures in Potty Training

We've been potty training Colt on and off for several months now. I recently bought him some "big boy" underwear, which actually didn't work out so well. I think he thought they were diapers and just peed in them. Now we are back to hanging free :)

Colt is doing great with the training. He is trained with urine, but #2 is another issue. Whenever he needs to poop, he'll ask to go outside. Once in the yard, he'll poop. (I personally think he's been watching our dog do her business a few too many times.) So, I've started following him outside with his little potty. In order to entice him to sit on it long enough to do his business, we've been coming up with all sorts of things. Anyway, one of these days we'll actually catch him in the act and plop him down on the pot. Until then, I'll leave you with this image...

Wow, Colt's making you work hard for this! But it's going to be SO worth it! You can do it!!

That is way too cute! I think I would "go" outside too if it were that fun. Keep up the good work!

I've been reading your blog ever since I saw it listed on Chez's and I love it. I love the potty training tactics, as a preschool teacher I appreciate the lengths mom's go to! I hope all of you are well and don't mind my blog eavesdropping! The boys are super cute!
