Pee Pee in the Potty

Well, the time has come, it's finally here. Potty Training! Actually, we are venturing into Potty Training Bootcamp this week at our home. Starting Monday morning Hoss will be wearing "big boy underwear" and we will be going full force on pee pee and poopy in the potty.

We have been discussing the process a lot this weekend. We made a sticker chart with his favorite cartoon character, Sponge Bob, on it. (Let's not discuss the pros and cons of 2 year olds watching Sponge Bob, I am not a fan, but much to my chagrin, the kiddo LOVES the show. I mean LOVES it...if only you could see him when it comes on.) I have also purchased some prizes and we have a prize box, which Hoss calls the "Surprise Box."

He is excited and has been talking about going pee pee and poopy in the potty like mommy and daddy (and every other family member he can think of).

In order to ensure that this week is going to be as successful as possible, I took a week off from work. Since I assume I will be locked inside my home with an alarm sounding every 15 minutes for potty time, scrubbing accident stains from the carpet, and pulling my hair out as I think about how ridiculous this idea was, I plan to do some "live blogging." I need to have some type of connection with adults and reality this week, I hope blogging will help me in this adventure.

I don't really know how "live" the blogging will be, but I plan to have the laptop up and running all week in order to update regularly. I assume the majority of my blogging will be between 8a.m. and 5p.m. since I'll have to fight hubby for the computer once he is home from work.

So, if we succeed or fail miserably, the entire world wide web will know all about it. I'm sure when Hoss is 15 he will be SO incredibly excited to know every single detail of his potty training is available for everyone to read.

Isn't it great to be a parent?

See ya soon!
