Choo Choo.....Joining the Potty Train...

Jacob is 3 and 4 (almost 5) months old. He understands when he's messy. He usually hides when he poops....all signs he's old enough to go to the bathroom on the toilet, right??
I've been asking the boy for MONTHS if he wants to potty on the toilet and the answer has always been, "No, thanks." (Yes, he's polite...) Finally, after Cameron went back to school and it was just the two of us at home, I'd had enough and I started FORCING the issue.
I would like to report (happily) that for the last 5 days Jake has had VERY few accidents. In fact, out of the last 5 days he's only had 3 accidents, and they were in the last 24 hours. On top of this, he's been sick. On his sick day last week, I offered a pull-up instead of his underpants and he began crying hysterically. His words were SO cute, "No, MOM!! I wanna be a BIG boy!!!" I allowed him to be a big boy and sure enough, he was dry all day long!
Potty training is one of the things I absolutely HATE about being a mom, but right now, it's not as bad as I'd remembered. :)

Yay!!!!! congrats!

Taylor, for some reason, has at least one accident a day...usually can't get to the potty fast enough after waking up, or gets too busy playing in the afternoon. Driving me nuts, since he's been potty trained for a year. Sigh.

Hey, can I ask you a question? Did that bump on your son's cheek turn out to be a small plexiform tumor after all? I found his picture today while trying to figure out what is going on with my daughter, who also has NF1. Thanks, sorry to just drop in and ask random questions!

Beth, No biggie! :) They never really figured out EXACTLY what it was, but they suspect that it was. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask! :)
