Potty Training: Day 5
Day #5: Great SUCCESS, went potty in the potty all by himself! (as luck would have it, he was bare-bottomed at the time and I'm sure that helped him out some). Then, while at Chik-fil-a , he went as soon as we got there and after he finished eating said "Mama" and pointed to the bathrooms, so I took him and lo and behold he did have to go and told me in enough time that we made it! YAY! A couple accidents when we got home, but one of those was at the potty, so no fault there.
Now I have to make a decision. We're traveling to Tampa for the weekend later this month, according to my original plan A would've still been in diapers for the trip. Now however I'm stuck. I'm pretty sure that he'll do fine for the 3 hour car ride over, but he'll have to go into a new church nursery and I'm not sure what their policy is for potty training, much less a potty training/ed 18 mo. old. Common sense tells me that I should just pick up a pack of Pull-Ups and use that just for the service, but my stubborn streak tells me that I said I'd never use them and certain places should just freeze over before I'll put them on my child. Practically, I don't want to pay $10 for 1 or 2 Pull-Ups and then have 20+ just sitting around my house. *Sigh*
I do think we're going to do a trial nursery run at my parents church this weekend. The classroom he'd be in has a bathroom in it, so if he needs it it's there; but he's been going so long between times, that he might just make it through the service. I guess we will see how that goes and then play the rest by ear!
