I decided to start potty training this morning. I put a cheap plastic shower curtain on the floor to protect the carpet from any accidents and set the three potties that we have in front of the TV. After breakfast we turned on a movie and I gave the kids their sippy cups and cranked the A/C.
Today was really just a test, to see who was ready and who was not. If they’re all ready, great, they can all do this together. If not, well, we’ll try one at a time. It turns out that Juli is ready. She was the only one that got her pee in the potty. Elisha is, well, not so ready. She definitely knows when she has to go, but she did not want to go on the potty. She waited, and waited, and waited, until I gave it and put her diaper back on, and she immediately peed. I mean immediately. KJ is somewhere in between. He peed while he was on the potty, but sprayed me instead of pointing himself down into the potty. I’m going to chalk that one up as a learning experience for both of us.
Hopefully we’ll make a little more progress tomorrow. We might try some underwear on Juli and KJ. I may also see if Elisha wants to wear them. I’ll let you know how it goes.
