A Lapse in Progress

So lately Miah's been doing so well with his potty junk and I've had to keep reminding him but he does go on the potty with persuasion. Well, today we had a lapse in our progress. You wanna know why? I'll tell you why - because boys don't care. I get home from my parties and I asked Austin if Miah did good on the potty today and he said, "well, uhhh, no, not really, he pooped in his pull-up." I asked him why and this was his answer, " well we were outside all day." Outside all day? That's your excuse? So did everyone just poop their pants since they were outside all day? Is that how it goes? I mean come on, we are POTTY TRAINING. You do have to remind him to go. I guess I'm the ONLY potty training teacher in this family and we'll just have to deal with lapses EVERY Saturday. UGH...boys


Is it really that hard to understand?

hahaha.... i love this picture... it's perfect... i like the awkward body of the child...ahh poop. Sorry austin doesn't care if his spawn is unable to live a civilized existence. I guess you'll just have to pray for help...maybe God cares a little more... even though he's a guy too. :)

We haven't really started potty training Ty. I think I am going to wait until he is 2 1/2. I had to catch up on all your new posts. I love all the pictures!

I don't know why some kids are easier than others. I thought I would die of old age and Joshua would still be potty-training! I agree to wait till 2 1/2 or 3 at the earliest, unless they are super gifted kids or something. Josh would be fine with the toilet and then a few weeks later, have a DELIBERATE poop accident right in front of me! Then he would be fine again for a while, and then have another lapse. Not rhyme or reason, drove me nuts! I feel your pain!
