If you didn't see the introduction thread, I am Jamie from July 09, first post here since the boards merged and I need your help/thoughts/opinions/advisce, whatever you got. Sorry in advance, I am a little long winded and I seem to ramble sometimes.
On one hand I want to potty train him, on the other, I don't really feel like it. Since I am not buying diapers (we CD), I guess I am just not in that big a hurry, ya know. With the way our schedules are right now, it makes much more sense to train now, he is only at daycare from 12-4.30 3 days a week, and he always takes a 2 hour (sometimes longer) nap while there. He wakes up a lot from nap completly dry, and goes a long time throughout the day without wetting, there has even been some mornings where he is waking up dry.
We have a potty, he has sat on it here and there, he doesnt really like it. Not to mention, I am a girl, I have only ever trained a girl, I have no clue how to even begin to train a boy.
A few days ago, I was going start training him, started in the morning, had every intention of making a real go of it. I sat him on the big toilet with his seat over it (which he doesnt particulary care for either) and he sat for a minute, tried to point that little thing down, but Jax didnt like that part. Tried to get him to do it, but he would just play with it and laugh. 30 minutes later, I take him back to the potty and start over, nothing. But now I have to pee. I am sitting there on the toilet, and all I hear is Jax in the hallway peeing on the floor. Ugh! I got so irritated, discouraged and stopped. Obviously, this is not going to go well if that is the way I felt after only 30 minutes.
I have been dreading potty training since the day I got pregnant with him, it is such a pain. I really need to get over it and do it already.
