We May Be Closer Than I Thought

Remember just a few days ago when I was complaining because I thought there was no way Zach would be potty trained by the time his little sister arrives? Well, I may have spoken a bit too soon. I may regret actually coming out and saying it, but he is doing very well this week. Not only is he staying dry during the day (generally one accident but that’s major progress!), but he’s also staying dry overnight. If I can get him to the bathroom quick enough after he wakes up in the morning, his pull-up is dry and he pees in the toilet.

Over the last couple of days, he has started actually telling me when he needs to go instead of having to rely on a timer. I still try to take him every hour or so, but I don’t worry so much if we don’t get there right on the dot. I can almost trust that he will tell me when he really needs to go. He seems to be getting much better control over his bladder.

If he keeps at this pace, I may actually let him wear his new Buzz Lightyear underwear to school next week. That will be the true test. Of course I would prefer that he starts pooping in the toilet as well before we do that. He has gone in the toilet several times, but it isn’t very consistent and most often ends up in the pull-up rather than the toilet.

  1. I’m so jealous that Zach is doing so well!! Of course you are probably a lot more dilligent with timing than I am… I was hoping to have Nolan out of diapers by his third birthday… I’ve got until Feb 24th…
    How do you get them to tell you when they have to go????? He always tells me AFTER the fact. Even when I see the ‘I have to go behavior’ he won’t admit that he has to go until I actually put him on the potty and he goes.
    I’m trying not to get too frustrated about it :o)

  2. That’s big news! Yipee yay Zach! 🙂

    I read your post about the cost of sending Zach and baby G to day care. I can understand how stressful a time you’re having from all of that pondering. I hope you find the best solution before Baby G comes 🙂
