We cleared three days on the calendar and it happened to be right before Spring Break, so we have less activities going on than usual. We started Friday and very quickly, I was frustrated and questioning if it was going to work so soon with Miles. He had ELEVEN accidents that day! Granted, I gave him a lot of liquids so he had plenty of opportunities to practice. He was not getting the concept and we were going through undies like crazy. I barely got them all washed and dried before he was having another accident! It was such a relief when he took a nap with a Pull-up on (I'm not even going to tackle potty training while sleeping for awhile) and I didn't have to worry about him having another accident.
With Jeremy home over the weekend, things got a little better. The weekend was a bit of a blur but luckily the weather was great so we spent a ton of time outdoors, while staying close to home. Miles still had several accidents and spent a lot of time sitting on the potty trying to figure out what to do. I lured him to sit still with my phone and the iPad, and we spent a LOT of time in the bathroom.
Today, on day 4, we attempted our first outing to the grocery store. I put a Pull-up on over Miles' undies in case of an accident. He still kind of worries me when he tells me he has to pee, because sometimes it's already too late. He mentioned "pee" when we were in the checkout line but I couldn't do much with two kids and a cart full of groceries. I was worried he had a full-blown accident, but it turned out he only dribbled and finished up when we got home. And he has went great in the potty the rest of the day!
I know we still have a ways to go, but he is making progress every day. I hope the worst is past. I'm proud of our little man, Miles!
And now, for some pics of the big boy... because I think a boy in his undies is the cutest thing!
