"Lachie do you want to do wee wee?"
I must have said this about two hundred times a day. I am sick of hearing myself say it!
The hype here is to WAIT for the right moment to toilet train.
Now must be the right moment, is it not? Lachie will turn 3 end of April. And he will be starting pre-kinder when he turns three. However, he seems disinterested and would rather do it in nappies! He definitely knows it when he does a poo because he would run to a private corner and would NOT surface until he gets detected AND defected to the change room!
I just NEED to get the ball rolling (no matter how daunting it may seem) because 1. I'm sick of changing a million and one nappies a day. 2. Our bin is ALWAYS overflowing and half of its content are...you guessed it! and I can't imagine what we're doing to the landfill. 3. I just have to.
So last week, we went to Target and bought him a pack of 10 "big boys undies" and gosh he was thrilled about them. They have pictures of airplanes all over and he couldn't stop showing off his undies.
So far so good. We still have accidents. Well, at least once or twice a day, which may seem like not much but you see, we have carpet in our lounge room and bedroom. So maybe I'm too highly strung about it. I should take one step back and NOT ask him every 5 minutes.
He is doing pretty well wee-ing in the toilet like a big boy. He steps up on his Ikea stool, aims perfectly and even do a little jiggle when he finishes! When he does it, I sing praises like a mad woman!
I don't know how much longer it will take, but I can definitely see the end.
"Mommy, I can't do poo-poo in the toilet becaaaaause (he likes to accentuate the caaaause part), my bum-bum gets wet and Nemo gets flushed down the toilet". Right. He saw Nemo getting flushed down the toilet.
