A Mini-Conversation with J-man

J-man JUST turned 3 in April.
I think he might have potty trained early because he can stay dry - but he really never showed much interest.
So I told myself that we'd put it off until a) he can talk better (*snort*)
b) it warmed up. As we are a streaker family when it comes to potty training.

One of the prepping things we've always done ---
wait.
---we've done it all of TWICE.
I make it sound like we've got 8 kids successfully potty trained.

Let me say, instead, that something we did with the First two was to mention, to the pre-potty trained child, that they could GO IN the potty instead of in the diaper.

J-man and I had such a conversation yesterday after he and his diaper sloshed to be changed.
(I swear he holds it in until he has the time to be changed.)

Me: When are you going to start pottying in the potty?

J-man: Nah yeh mama.

Me: When?

J-man: a little slower as mom's obviously slow on the up-take tonight: Nah. Yeh. Mama.

I just had to laugh. The Professor chuckled.

He can communicate.

When is he going to start using the toilet?
Not Yet, Mama.

I potty trained three kids and I swear I wouldn't know where to start if I ever had another. It's a mystery. It was a very stressful time for me, but they finally got it. I wish you all the best! And I hope you all are feeling better really soon, too.
