it's time.....

Today is my last day of work before the Christmas holidays and let me tell you...I am definitely counting down the hours.  I have about a week and a half off and I figure that since Lil J is 2 1/2 on Christmas Eve, it's finally time to tackle what most parents would love to avoid:  potty training.

He's been semi potty trained for the past 6 months but neither my husband or I have been very consistent.  I had hoped that once he started daycare, he would follow suit with the other kids and learn to go potty himself.  Not a chance.  In fact, he might even be regressing a bit.  He does, however, get really embarrassed when he's going #2 - he tends to hide in a dark corner where no one can see him.  Another sign that he is ready for the big leagues.

My plan is to be very consistent of putting him on the potty.  I'm talking every 15-20 minutes.  I'm going to load him up on fluids and after a day or two, put him in his 'big kid' underwear.  It's actually kind of exciting!  I'm so over Lil J's Easy-Up's!

I'll keep you updated on our progress.  Hopefully I'll be blogging at the end of next week about how Lil J is fully potty trained!!
