Now let me back track. I've watched friends with children close in age to mine potty train their kids with ease. Many many people. My children on the other hand have shown
I had read over and over on my SPD lists the woeful tales of parents trying to potty train their children with Sensory Processing Disorder. I prepared myself for the worst: grown adult men in diapers, who never potty trained, and the "worst mother ever" award hanging above my front door.
Last week Summy asked to sit on the potty a few times. We played it up, he sat for a minute or two and made a sound of pee hitting the bowl with his mouth. (Hilarious to hear by the way) Then he stood and fake-flushed. My hopes were dashed.
Yesterday at daycare the teacher said she didn't know if he 100% went. She hadn't been standing there next to him, but when she checked again, there was something there to flush. My doubts were in full force, (are you sure it was even Summy in the bathroom? Are you sure that wasn't a brown crayon?) but we made another potty-sitting attempt last night (nothing happened) and let him wear underwear over his diaper to sleep in.
Today when I picked him up, he had peed in the potty. I don't know what to say. We have yet to see him go, but I am so hopeful this might be the beginning of actual potty training. I had resigned myself to adult diapers, but it looks as if one of mine might be potty trained prior to college. (Jack is a totally different story, folks!)
So I ask you, dear readers. What is your potty training story? What are your experiences? Did it start like this for you? How long was the process?
I am cautiously excited!
