Potty training.

We have reached a MAJOR victory in the potty training area. I think we have Tristen almost completely potty trained. We pretty much did it in one day, he was VERY ready for it and so was I. I decided the other day that I needed to let him have more control over it so I put underwear on him and explained to him that mommy would leave the bathroom door open and the toilet seat up and when he needed to go potty he could just go. Oh my goodness did it ever work! Only twice did he have an accident and he's even been dry every morning when he gets up and he tells me that he has to go potty when he gets up. He's even been dry the whole time we've been out of the house the last few days. Needless to say, I am super proud of him. The boy is always teaching me something too, this time it was that i have to let go and let him grow up!

      Tristen is 2 1/2 and I thought we would NEVER get him potty trained. But once I let him do as much on his own as possible it was honestly like one day and he got it. We started for about 6 months taking him potty every night so he got the hang of it and that seemed to help too.

      It seemed to really work for him. Plus we make a HUGE deal every time he goes, especially when he poops in the toilet. We were in the store the other day and I said something about someone being happy something and he yells "you so happy, they poop in toilet, I so proud of you" lol
