Or perhaps, more accurately, my kids are. After all, they are the ones who are potty training.
Potty training has had it’s challenges for us. Generally speaking, it’s been tough with different styles at home and preschool, and a bathroom that is thisbig. Thank goodness for Pull-Ups.
Then there are potty training individual challenges.
Sebby, age 4 3/4
First, Sebby is obviously older than the typical potty training age. If you are a frequent reader, you know that Sebby has Autism. Between his sensory challenges and sometimes tough communication, potty training has been really really hard. He is pretty good about pulling his pants and Lightening McQueen Pull-Ups down, usually with some prompting, but then he often sits on the potty for all of 10 seconds. It’s often one step forward, two steps back with him. I’m confident it will all click for him soon, at least I hope.
Quincy, age 2 1/2
Quincy is very petite for her age. In many clothes, she’s still in 18 month sizes. So it’s nearly impossible to find panties for her to wear. Quincy is pretty great about telling you she needs to “poop” and many times she’s successful. With the exception of when the crud went through our house this week, I don’t think I’ve changed a poopy diaper for her in probably 2-3 months. So she’s ready. Now to get the walking thing down and the pulling down and pulling up!
Potty training with friends
