It's about time!

Right when I thought there was no hope, he did it. Hoss independently decided he needed to go pee pee in the potty!!!!

It has only been 5 months since Potty Training Bootcamp, which was not successful in anyway. And finally we had success.

Tonight Hoss told me he needed to go pee on the potty. He ran to the bathroom and told me we were only going to read a book, not to pee. He sat on the potty and as I was on page 2 of the book he started to stand up. I told him to sit down, but he kept standing up and then I noticed he had peed. YAY!!!!!!!!

We had a little party in which Hoss chose a toy from the prize box (Maracas, what was I thinking? I guess they can join the band of the drum and recorder. We could play a mean "Hot Cross Buns" don't ya think?). We also added a sticker to the potty chart.

I am so proud! Let's hope this will continue tomorrow.

Woo hoo! Now you're moving in the right direction! Getting out of diapers is such a relief and it won't be long now!

Oh, I know how you feel. It took us more than 2 1/2 years from start to potty-trained! It feels so good to finally be there! (Perversely, the second one whom I was not even thinking of training yet is pulling her Easy-Ups on and off and hopping on the potty and even peeing in it of her own accord!)
