Yesterday, I started potty training Miles. I was following this great program/method called Three-Day Potty Training. The theory was that you would help the child recognize when they needed to go, and within three days, they'd be completely trained. It sounded like music to my ears.
|This is what most of yesterday looked like.|
So, this morning, I threw out the program/method and went back to what felt right for my kid. I threw down towels in the living room, set his potty seat in front of the television, turned on Thomas the Train, and stripped the kid naked. Within minutes, Miles had peed in the potty - rather a lot. We emptied the potty into the toilet, flushed, and celebrated with a sucker and a call to Daddy to brag. An hour or so later, we were playing in the living room, and I saw him clench his legs and run for the potty chair. Another success. Another lollipop.

I should market this as the "Nudity Method". I'll make a fortune. . . In the meantime, I'll be here, watching too much television, and celebrating my son peeing in the living room. :)
Update: 5:45pm - Still naked, still no accidents. Not even during naptime, when he slept in the buff. :)
Also, I have no idea why this post looks so weird. Nothing I do seems to fix it. . .
