I finally decided to take this parenting thing seriously and potty train my 3 year old. Surprisingly, it hasn't been nearly as difficult as I had thought it would be. The biggest challenge was just getting him to put a pair of underwear on. I spent all day bribing, manipulating, begging....seriously, everything and anything I could thing of. We tried candy...nope. A trip to McDonalds....nope. Pizza (his favorite)....nope. Notice how they are all food bribes? What can I say the kid takes after me and loves food. We even went as far as to tell him we could go to the store and get a new train...nope. Keep in mind, this is just to get him to try the dang underwear on! Finally we surrendered and I thought I'd just have to potty train him after the baby was born. Then later that night after his night-time shower, Rob just put a pair of unders on him without making it a big deal and it worked. Nolan didn't say a word and he walked right out to show me, as proud as he could be. Who knew it could have been that simple from the beginning. So that night we started and it's been great ever since. He's had his accidents but he's definitely getting the hang of it.
I just can't get over how stinkin' cute he looks in them. I seriously can't stop pinching his bum. It's so adorable. My baby's growing up and, although, I love it and this age is definitely my favorite, it really does make me sad.
Thank goodness for our beloved Iphones. Mines been snapping a lot more pictures these days, due to my camera breaking. We got a quote to fix it and we're still trying to decide if I should just get a new one, it's that bad. Yes, I'm devastated!
