Want to know something I am not good at? Potty training. I despise it with every part of my being. I thought I was O.K. at it because Tommy wasn't all that difficult to train. He is a pleaser, so when he figured out that doing his business in the potty made everyone happy with him, he was thrilled to comply. I took credit for this attitude. Johnny is not a pleaser. He is happy to go in the potty-if I put him on it every 45 minutes or so. I am pretty sure that if I was really consistent about this for a week or so that it would click and he would be trained. But. That requires lots and lots of 100% consistency on my part and it 's just not really happening. Turns out, I am totally lazy. So. I ask your your aid. This is my very last package of pull-ups. I will be consistent because when they run out, we are moving on to underpants and if I haven't been consistent, that will be super unpleasant. If you see me at Target contemplating the pull-up options, please slap my hand and remind me of this post. We are on a deadline, people. Preschool starts in 8 weeks. Watch this space for updates.
