Terrible TWOSday -- Potty Training Update

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

So I've been attempting to write this post but it's been a little hard if I do say so myself...



Apparently the life of seven year old Puggle is pretty rough.  I mean let's be honest - going for a 2 mile run, sleeping in the sun and chasing birds and dogs in the backyard is hard work.
If only..


Okay on to the REAL star of this post -- Mr. Potty Pants himself!  We are currently two weeks and two days into potty training and honestly I think we are doing AMAZING!!  He's had just one, yes one, accident in the past two weeks.  I'm so proud of my little guy.  We have been swimming, to the zoo, on several play dates and to the park and he'll still let me know when he has to potty.  Now, he still wears a diaper to nap and bed and he isn't waking up dry, but I think that's something we'll conquer in the next few weeks. 
He is still a little hesitant to poop in the toilet so for the past week we've put out a "Caca Train" that he would get as soon as he went poopy in the toilet.  (Yes, we refer to poop as caca, don't judge.  But blame my mother for starting that one.)  So tonight was a HUGE night.  
Cohen went poopy in the potty!!!
We totally got all excited and danced and he was absolutely thrilled the he finally got to open his train.  I'm hoping that it wasn't a coincidence and that it will happen again...like tomorrow.

 Big boy with his new trains -- and haircut! :)

So far we are doing well and I'm really happy with his progress.  We are going on a road trip to our hometown this weekend so it will be a big test of our training.  
Any tips on night time training I'd love it! 

Happy Potty Dancing! :)

  2. It is so funny how exciting this is... before having kids I didn't quite understand how excited parents got. I knew it was a big deal and I was happy for them... but baking a cake to celebrate? Well, we are about to start potty training my second... and you bet I will bake a cake when it is all done!

    Oh - and yea, it sure is "hard out there for a puggle." :D
