potty training day 1

Last night I started coming down with a cold, so I was dreading potty training today. However, Garty is super excited, so I'm going to quickly take care of a few things and then head downstairs where we'll take his diaper off and let him run around on the bare wood and tile floors while I sit there armed with a big pile of towels. We're well stocked with plastic candy canes full of M&M knock offs that we purchased for 9 cents at CVS. Garty is thrilled about his Pull Ups that have a doggie on them for when we need to leave the house. When I brought them home yesterday he showed me how he can step into his Pull Up instead of laying down like he does to put on a diaper. God help us!!

Kris, my best advice is to adopt kids that are already potty trained.

You definitely need the "rewards" to get a child through potty training. I had a bowl with M&Ms & hershey kisses & she could have some if she went number 2 on the potty or had an accident free day. I totally dreaded getting started & so glad that is over! BEST OF LUCK to you!
