Well, here we are coming to the end of week 2 on our potty training adventure with Alexander. After 2 weeks, I have to say we have been mighty successful. The little Alexander has only had a few accidents here and there. The best part is not one of those accidents has happened outside of the house! We have been to restaurants, a football game, the grocery store, even other people’s homes and not one accident!!
Oh, did I mention that he has also kicked the habit of doing the number 2 in the underwears?
He gets really excited when he does it on the potty and looks forward to the big flush at the end.
Alexander is also getting better during the night as well. On the nights that he does wake up in the wee hours, he does manage to go potty and I have also noticed he isn’t going in his Pull-Up as much at night either. So, until we go at least a week with a dry Pull-Up through the night, we are going to continue to use them for sleeping.
Now for the downfalls.
Since becoming a big boy and using the potty, Alexander has developed an obsession with flushing the potty.
Not only does he enjoy flushing it, he likes to flush things down it too.
As I sit here typing this, both of our toilets are out of order until my father gets done with work at 2am, makes the 45 minute drive from work home and stops here on the way…….I am pregnant with no potty.
Let me tell you, pregnant without a working potty is no fun!
We know that one toilet is clogged with toilet paper, we just aren’t sure how much of it and if there is anything else in there. The other one is most likely blocked by a few cotton swabs we are sure he flushed earlier in the day leading to a clog.
Now, we’ve plunged and plunged and plunged to no avail.
My father in law came over and attempted to snake both toilets with no luck.
So. here I sit…..with two brand new wax rings just in case, waiting for my father—-PA the Great, to come to my rescue!!
Wish me luck!
