I truly think I'm insane.
Or maybe I just like to torture myself.
I need to potty train Brock. Oh, it's beyond time to start doing this.
It took about 6 months until Jakob was good and trained with all the functions. I started him when he was about 2 1/2. And now Troy is almost 2. So if it takes Brock just as long, then by the time he's trained Troy will be 2 1/2, and it will be time to start him. So, the other day I was thinking, why not do him and Brock at the same time.
So...am I crazy?
BUT, if any of you have potty trained your child(ren), could you please let me know what worked for you, or didn't work for you?
We tried everything, EVERYTHING, on Jakob: chocolate bribery, toy bribery, sticker charts, the potty making a celebratory noise, calling Daddy or Grandma to tell them...and nothing worked until we told him that only babies pee and poo in their diapers, so he must be a baby still. His response was, "I'm NOT a baby! I'm a big boy!" And from then on out he was good to go. We've tried the same lines on Brock, and he gives a look of, "And why would I care about that?" And we haven't even mentioned anything to Troy yet about trying to go in the toilet.
I'm going to start trying after the baby blessing (July 6). We don't have any plans to go anywhere anytime soon. Cross your fingers for me and my sanity!
