in training

When my mother-in-law asked me if I had any big plans for August, I thought for a second and realized this month is going to be pretty low-key. Well, let's be honest. Since I found out I was pregnant my life has been as low-key as it possibly can be with a 2 year old (which doesn't feel very low-key, but walking too and from the playground every day takes about as much energy as I can muster so that's pretty much all we do.)

So, a wide open August plus the fact that Blake has started to demand a clean diaper anytime he wets the one he is currently wearing have led me to the decision to begin potty training Blake.

-I'm starting too early. I've heard if you start before your child is ready it can be a total nightmare to try to get them to learn how to use the potty.

-That's pretty much my only fear.

So that's my August. I will be potty training my almost 2 and a half year old. Prayers appreciated.

If it turns out that you've started too early, just put it on the shelf and try again in a few months. No big deal. It will only make trying again later all the easier. That's what happened with Garrett. He wasn't ready when we tried the first time. We tortured ourselves for a week, then put it on the shelf. When we tried again a few months later, it was MUCH easier -- over and done with in a few days. You'll do great. Half the battle is gearing yourself up to tackle a project like this, and you seem to have that part well under control. :)
