So my previous post was a bit curt, I admit it. I had tried a couple of times to do the whole potty training thing, with disastrous results. But with summer camp looming in August (they require the boys to be toilet trained), I had to bite the bullet.
Last week I spent a whole day with each of the kids doing the deed. I used a book about which I was rather skeptical - Toilet Training in Less Than A Day - but in the end it worked quite well. It has been a week now, and in spite of a few accidents, all is going much better than I could have hoped. We are diaper free! Even at night! Woo Hoo!
Now I need to spend a little more time on the small picture items - namely, how to wipe and the appropriate use of the toilet paper roll. The picture above is what I found this morning when I woke up. Rowan claims he only peed, but it looks like he got a bit distracted. Oh well. I suppose I should be glad he didn't flush it all.
