A Big Day for a Big Boy

He stayed dry for the whole day. The. Whole. Day.

Other mommies out there know what I mean when I say that it is hard to express the pride (and relief) you feel when it seems like your little one finally "gets it" in the potty training department.

For the past few weeks, I would say that we have been "dabbling" in potty training - with occasional successes but no sustained interest in the project. (Basically, if I was standing right next to him and was able to sense what was about to occur, I could usually coax him into the bathroom in time).

I have been waiting for some "sign" that he was ready for the real deal.

I am taking his all-day long dryness as that sign. This week is officially potty training week. We are wearing underwear to our Parent/Toddler class today. Wish us luck.

Congrats and hope it continues to go well. Hopefully the "I am potty trained" switch has clicked and he won't want to see another diaper again!

Yay Brendan! So proud of him (and happy for you to have a 3 month break until you have to do diapers again!) :)

Good boy Brendan! What a big boy.

That is certainly worth a cheer!
