I think the day has finally come where my little Ethan is ready to use the potty. I've been talking to him about using the potty now that he needs to give up his diapers to his little cousins Brody and Chloe. Finally after trying 5 times to potty train he is getting it. This morning he came into our room at about 6:30 am and asked to go pee and I took him. I also removed the pull up and he went running to his room. He opened the drawer that contains all those cute itty bitty underpants and put his Thomas ones on. I thought ok let's go with the flow today. I asked him to go back to bed. I knew in my heart that this could end up in a huge mess but hey what's life without some drama early in the morning. He slept for another hour and woke up dry. Today the whole day he tried his best and only had one accident.
I can not tell you how happy I am that he decided to do it because now I know he is ready. We always try to push them because their older siblings did it before they did and I am so happy that our pediatrician always encourages us to listen to our children and only do things when they are ready. Let's see what tomorrow brings. I have explained that after we drop off Tristan at school that he will be able to change to his underwear.
