Diaper Free Zone

A little over a year ago, I vowed to never write about my babies bowel movements with the exception of  two times. I present to you the second time-- Connor man is officially potty trained!

We followed the "whatever it takes" method
If it were up to me, we wouldn't have started Connor so soon. I heard many stories about boys just taking longer to potty train and needing to be older. But their school had been pushing us to start Connor. They insisted he was ready, and I dragged my feet to begin potty training because frankly, it is not fun. I can change a diaper in record time, but hoping for a toddler to sit on the potty and waiting for something to happen… "ain't nobody got time for dat!" But the kids had a long two week break for the Winter holidays, and we decided to bite the bullet and get it started. To my surprise, Connor picked it up fairly quickly. After our two weeks of training, school was back in session and they prefer the cold turkey/no pull-up method. We shamefully picked him up daily from school with 5 bags of dirty clothing from accidents. Those 5 bags slowly became 2 and for the last month, our Connor man has been accident free! Can you say cha-ching?! (That is the sound of the money I am saving from not having to buy diapers anymore).
