Potty Time

Hands down ... I doubt potty training is easy for anyone.

However, with Jackson, we had a few extra challenges ... or just one very big, heavy, plaster challenge.

So, despite the disproval of some ... Justin and I (and Jackson's pediatrician) thought it was best to postpone toilet training until Jackson was out of his non-removable Mehta cast and into a plastic brace.  

So ... on "Independence Day" we chose to step up to the plate and accept the challenge of potty training Jax.

And ... I am blown away ... and pleased to announce ... that Jackson is officially a potty training ROCKSTAR!

Seriously ... I am beyond happy that we waited ... because he is READY to learn!

Today is day 5 of potty training ... and Jackson has only had a few accidents.  Only ONE peepee accident to be more specific!  :)  We are SO proud of him!!!

And ... he's pretty proud of himself too!

He loves using his potty ... is usually very successful ... and is having a blast eating M&Ms, earning stickers, and choosing prizes!

Stay tuned for more adventures in potty training!

For those of you wondering ... the trainers you see in the photos are called Super Undies and they were recommended to me by a fellow PIS/Mehta casting mama.  They would also be GREAT for any parents who are a bit Type-A (like me).  They work as regular trainers if you desire (think cloth, Gerber training pants) but can be "stuffed" like a cloth diaper when away from home.  Therefore, the child still feels wetness and operates as if he/she is in underwear ... however, the will NOT leak everywhere in public!  So far, they have been fantastic ... just be prepared that you must care for them as you would cloth diapers!
