I was beginning to think we were the last ones getting on board with the potty training, and I did figure out that the diaper aisle eventually does run out of sizes, so we would have to do this eventually...someday...when he was ready...
That day has come! OK, I really have no idea if that day has really come, but he's getting interested, and I'm definitely interested, so we took steps to start.
Went to Walmart and bought big-boy underwear! We have three pairs of Thomas the Train and 5 pairs like Daddy's (different colors). I tell him what they are and why we are buying them and make a big deal of it, letting him hold them until he got tired of it.
5:30pm: After the big poopy diaper of the evening, I put him in the big-boy underwear for the last hour of being up (so from 5:30 to 6:30). I make a big deal of it. I then ask him about every five minutes if he needs to go potty, or needs to pee-pee. Always got a no answer.
6:30pm: We go upstairs to do bath time, etc. After asking him one more time if he needed to go potty, I let him help undress himself, then put all his clothes, including the underwear, into the dirty clothes hamper. My now naked child runs around a bit, I ask him if he needs to pee-pee. No. I go into the bathroom and start running the water, he comes to the edge of the bathroom door and pees on the floor between the carpeted hallway and the bathmat. I do have to admire the aim, it's only really about an 8 inch gap, but I make him clean it up anyway.
After I make him throw the toilet paper full of pee into the toilet and flush, he's into the bath and we're done with potty training for today. We'll try again tomorrow. *sigh*
