I know that all last week I posted how Eric really isn't ready for potty training and that I was going to wait a couple months. Well this weekend, he was fighting with me when I was trying to put a diaper on him so I gave up and let him go around naked. I put his potty seat out in the living room and told him if he didn't want a diaper on then he would have the pee in the potty....and guess what! For the rest of the day he peed on the potty all by himself. It was like all of a sudden he figured out what it felt like when he was about to pee and he would hold it until he sat on the potty. Today is Wednesday and he has peed on the potty ever since Saturday as long as I let him go around with no diaper and no pants and if I put the potty seat in the living room so that he sees it. I'm going to keep this up and slowly begin putting underwear on him. I haven't put the underwear on yet because I'm afraid he will think it's okay to pee in them. I plan on going out this weekend and getting him waterproof underwear covers. He still doesn't poop on the potty.
Small steps are great. Our potty seat sat in the corner of the kitchen for about two weeks. It was just easier for her to remember and for us to get her there quickly. Slowly we have moved it to the bathroom. She also spent several days with no pants on! The stories we will have to tell when they are teenagers and we want to embarrass them!
