i'm pooped.

we are now on day 3 of project potty training: part 2. after our last attempt and quick return to diapers, i felt defeated and was certain it would be years before we would have successful potty training. yet out of the blue on tuesday, finn decided it was time. he went potty on his frog pot and was ready for the big boy underwear. yikes! i felt so unprepared. i really wanted to read a book about all this or ask my friends what worked best for a little boy, but finn caught me off guard and we were in the trenches before i knew it.

so here we are. day 3. i am exhausted. we've had 4 accidents thus far. i say "we've" because i feel totally responsible for every single one of them. he'll be wiggling and dancing, yet say he doesn't have to go. and i believe him. come on katie, how dumb are you? i guess it's a good thing though, because those few pees down the leg have had a huge impact on him. our only hardship is that finn can hold it. for a long time. and he's not very good at letting it go. he'll be sitting on the potty chair, crying that he has to go but that it just doesn't work. so i read ANOTHER book about poop and run the faucet and success! we're not surrendering this time. oh no sir, my baby boy is all grown up!
