Yesterday exceeded my expectations. Here are a couple of cute pics from then:

Pull Ups for naps, and back to the lock in, but it was clear at 4:00 that it wasn't working anymore. Hubs took them and the potties to the playroom so I could fix dinner, which was interrupted by not one but BOTH of them filling their undies with a big load of poo. I should have seen it coming. We cleaned them up, ate dinner, and the rest of the evening was uneventful. (By the way, they're wearing overnight diapers until they start waking up dry - I'm not even going to begin tackling that!)
However, we did make it through the entire day in underpants with only Pull Ups at nap, so I was very, very happy.
Today - totally different story. We started out the same way, this time with Elmo, who, I've been told, is the master when it comes to potty videos. They are less impressed than they should be.
|Begin Day Two: Cheese!|
The problem with normal bathrooms is there is just ONE toilet that can be fitted with a toilet ring. Never mind we have multiple bathrooms - we are always all together for this. So, we've had more accidents today because they both are in love with the toilet ring (hooray, right?) but cannot "hold" it while his brother is on the ring!
Today I'm feeling less like the Super Toilet Training Mom that I thought I was yesterday. But they are still "getting" it most of the time AND they like the toilet ring, SO I think I'm still on the right track.
Correction: WE are on the right track. I couldn't do this without my supportive husband and I'm not just saying that to be nice. He ran errands yesterday so we could have Elmo and smoothies for more training today, he's right there showing them how to hold their pee-pee's down, and pretending it's totally normal to be wiping up pee and answering a business call at the same time. Seriously - BEST. HUSBAND. EVER.
