We watched several potty training movies and read some potty training books.
Drew sat with George and encouraged him while he tried to go potty.
He and George would check the potty after George was done.
I decorated the bathroom.
After naps, it was Drew's turn to go potty on the toilet. I gave him a big box of underwear, and he chose to wear some 'Mater (from the Cars movie) underwear. I tried to think of some fun drinks for Drew to drink during the afternoon. This was a vanilla milkshake.
We had our first potty success around 5:30 in the evening. He went on the potty one other time in the evening, and then he had an accident right before bed.
Drew isn't really excited to sit on his potty, but when we read or play with him, he will sit for a while.
Today has been a pretty good day 2 of the potty training. Drew has gone potty twice so far in his little toilet and has not had any accidents. We are hoping that soon it will be just a natural, easy part of our lives. We have promised Drew that we will buy him a Gordon train when he starts to go potty on the toilet all the time. This is quite a process, and I'm sure it will still take us a while, but we are working hard and hoping to see real progress in the next week or so!
