I'm crazy. . . . .

well, it's official, I'm crazy. "Why now" do you ask???? I'm attempting something I've never attempted before. Starting tomorrow I am going to. . . . . . .




bum, bum, bum, bum. . . .




start potty training Tank. The reason I'm crazy???? I've never potty trained a kid so young. But, the kid is showing all the signs, so, what do ya do??? He's 21 1/2 months but asking me to put him on the toilet already and telling me when he is stinky and asking me to change him. So, we'll see what happens.


I really hate potty training. I think it's the worst job for a parent. It requires all the patience I have. But, this is a slow week for Pampered Chef so I'm canceling all my appointments at the gym for the week, buying the boy some tiny little underwear and giving it a try. Wish me luck! Wouldn't it be wonderful if it worked? No more diapers!

Good luck! Hopefully he'll be "ready" and things will go smoothly!

Katie- thanks, I'm a little afraid to even hope it might work. Here we go!

It could happen.... but I'll be honest- I'll probably hate you a little if it works.

Wait... that didn't sound as funny as I thought it would.

heh, Bon, my expectations aren't too high, but, it's worth a shot. No accidents so far today, but, there also has been nothing put in the toilet so I'm not sure that no accidents means anything. :)

Sounds like he might be ready.

21 months? Wow, time flies...

I have three kids...the oldest two are boys and were terrible with potty training. Worst part of parenting to date. My daughter is 15 months old and will tell me "poop" and then go in her diaper. She still doesn't go on the potty, but I've been putting her on it even though she is so young. I've heard myths and rumors of some early "magical window of time" when you can potty train early. I have a feeling this will go badly..for me. Hopefully, good for you!
