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 ---
---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.

Some of the best stories are the potty training ones. Hope you all enjoy your "tucked in" weekend and feel better soon!

I don't know if I already said this- I might have- thanks for your comment yesterday!

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.
