Proud to be a big boy

It’s been almost a month now where Tyler has been exclusively in underwear. It’s one of those things I simply hated to jinx by telling anyone too soon… because it was one of those things that just kinda happened. His teacher has been telling us for a while now that he was ready … and a few friends mentioned that he was ready … but the idea of potty training has *never* appealed to me. Sabrina essentially potty trained herself right before she was two and a half … so, I really never did anything with her which means I had no idea where to start with Tyler. And, well, Tyler is a boy … I had all sorts of questions on how to actually potty train a boy.

But, then, we found him a perfect big boy bed and as we drove home from picking it up, we told him that as soon as he was done with diapers, that we’d get his new bed put up and he’d be out of the crib! And … just like that, he was done with diapers.

My kids are so determined — once they make their minds up, they simply do it. And Thank God because I don’t have the level of patience as many of my friends!

The moral of the story? Never ask me how to potty train your kids because I still have no idea.
