Here we go...

The parenting moment I have dreaded, ever since finding out we would be raising a boy, has finally arrived.

Potty training.

We've been talking to Ethan about the potty for a couple of weeks now and we finally went out tonight to buy a seat. Homeboy couldn't wait to get upstairs and sit on it and, wouldn't you know, he actually peed!

It was a family affair, no doubt. Ethan doing his thang on the potty chair, Mama & Daddy losing our minds with excitement, and Aunt Bubbie taking pictures with her Crackberry.

He was so proud of himself and kept saying, "Potty again!" He sat on it a few more times, then I tucked him into his crib with promises of trying again in the morning.

Ready or not, here we go.

Sounds like it's going well so far! It was by far the hardest parenting time for me, so I hope it will be easier for you! Andrew is a stubborn thing! Ha! Once he finally got it, then he had heart surgery and now has reverted back apparently. GREAT! :( Looks like Ethan is excited about it, which is good.

Good luck! :)

You are so brave! I have been trying half-heartedly with C. She is just so stubborn about it, and I am so lazy. And now I am using surgery as my excuse. I hope it goes well, and I am so proud of you for starting now!

Oh boy! We are looking at potty training when we get back from Aly's surgery. Looks like Ethan is doing AWESOME already! Good luck!! :) :)

hanks for the encouragement, ladies! We're not getting into full-fledged training just yet, but I realized we should at least have a potty seat for him to get used to. So far we're operating under "no pressure" mode until he is completely comfortable on it, and showing us a few more readiness signs. Good luck to y'all, as well!

The joys of potty training boys! LOL!!! Well, it sounds like you are off to a very good start. Hope Ethan stays just as excited for the duration of the training phase. That sure makes it easier!

Love it!!

What a supporting family to make this a 'family affair'.

Ethan cannot go wrong with the family that he has been blessed with.

Love always,
Grandma A.
