Potty training is still a work in progress. He's great with #1 (knock on wood). Wears underwear to bed even (no idea if this is normal, on track, maybe he's even behind, ha). #2...still not there yet, but we are one tiny, little, baby step closer I think. We can at least get him to sit on the toilet and 'try'. This used to be a crying struggle which resulted in nothing positive, but we've crossed that bridge I think. We still have yet to have him go on his own in the toilet and I think he somewhat even is holding it since he knows we or daycare will take favorite toys away if he has an accident. I feel we're also making progress because in the last 3-4 days he TALKS about 'no more skid marks' (ha) and 'gonna go poop on the toilet'. So...I'm praying this means we're closer.
And yes, to many people's advice about bringing a book into the bathroom, it's working. However it's not a 'traditional' book but his 'skid loader and backhoe magazine'. Go figure.
