I'm not quite sure how I managed to forget to put a diaper on my son before our morning out today, but yeah - it happened. Our final stop was to the park near our house so that he could play on the swings for a while. He started walking funny and asking Tizit? which is his version of "What the hell is going on here, mama?" while pulling at his overalls. I figured he had pooped and it went into the front, so I did the check-the-diaper swipe in his pants, except - there was no diaper. We had been out for 2 hours, and my poor baby was without a diaper the entire time. At least he knew not go go in his pants.

And yes, I did have my diaper bag with me - but the diaper bag rarely has diapers in it. Go figure.

LOL! and there you go. just like that. POTTY TRAINED!

actually, that's how we "trained" my 4yo. he was a lot older than your son (~3yrs + a couple of mos, actually)... i just sent him to preschool one day without a diaper and in underwear. and that was that. of course, it helped that he was thee last one to get potty trained and everyone else in the class was peeing/pooing in the toilet. lemmings. they are a bunch of lemmings, i tell ya!


Wait, I think he is ready to go, I mean in the pot! Who knew?

Oh my God, just thinking about potty training an 18-month-old while having a newborn gives me an anxiety attack! He still pees on my husband when he changes him - ha ha! Just the day before we let him run around without a diaper on because he had a nasty rash, and at 3 different times he squatted on the carpet, pooped, and announced it as "BIIIIIIG CACA!" He may be ready, but I'm not!! :)

LOL! love the big caca comment... they always say that the 2nd, or consecutive children, are easier than the first. BS is 22mo and tells me "poopoo?!" when she has one in her pants. BB never did that. but she doesn't tell me every single time... and i'm just not ready to potty train her yet. takes a lot of effort and patience. i am lazy and i lack patience.

blah blah blah... ;)
