The Most Intense Potty Training Ever!

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

We are potty training Pierce this week, and it's a freaking nightmare. Here's how it works:
  • Check his pants every 5 minutes to make sure they're dry.
  • Put him on the potty every 30 minutes and pray for pee pee.
  • Leave him on the potty for 10 minutes.
  • Repeat the process.
  • Should he have an accident, we have to sternly say "You're wet", and take him to the potty. We are to place him on the potty and immediately remove him, and take him back to the scene of the crime and announce "You're wet. Pee pee goes in the potty." We repeat this process 5 times, and then start the 5 minute timer again.
We have timers all over the house. It's a real pain in the butt.

The first two days were full of lots of pee pee, but not on the potty. There were accidents-a-plenty. Kim was discouraged, and I was starting to wonder if I would ever get the smell of urine out of my nose.

Today, though, Pierce got it! He only had one accident all day!!!

This stuff is a pain, but it's all worth it if I don't have to change diapers anymore. No pain, no gain!!
