oh, did you notice??

Matthews tidy whiteys that he has on in the other post!! can we say FINALLY!!!!! flippin finally potty trained. My whole "not so gentle shove" into potty training totally didnt work a couple months back so i said forget it. Let me remind you that the day before he turned 3 i had him happily in underwear. Then i went to my moms for a week and Ben put him back in diapers. Well M didnt do so well that i left and he stuck to diapers like you wouldnt believe. It was very emotional and stressful to him. I think he associated no diaper to me leaving and as long as he had diapies i wasnt leaving. Poor fella :(. soo fast forward to now. When your almost 3 1/2 y/o is adjusting his own diaper to loosen or tighten for comfort, its time to ditch the diapers!LOL. so the big day was 12/26 and we gave him 2 days warning. Then on Christmas we told him that tomorrow there wont be any more diapers. So that morning he did AWESOME for about 2 hours and then had the tantrum of all tantrums. He screamed for some 30/40 minutes straight. non stop. at one point Ben was like, i should have never put the diapers back on him....... well, duh!!. so with the promise of some frosting and hiding the diapers in the car he finally asked for his underwear. :) - yes, he was naked while throwing this fit, lol. Plus side to the whole thing was there really was no training to it. He knew all the ins and outs. No accidents or anything. He does have to wear a diaper at night, but thats ok.
