We are trying desperately to potty train our son.
Yesterday we tried some new tactics .... one of which was giving him regular underwear to wear.
He would have an accident, not like the feeling - then run to his little potty AFTER he started going. Yuck, but besides the point.

So, last night when I was putting him to bed I felt the edge of the bed was wet. I said 'DS, it's wet over here. Did you go pee while we read your book?'He promptly sat up in bed & spoke the clearest I've ever heard him enunciate "No mom. Max did it. I did NOT pee on that bed. It's all Max's fault"

ugh!


Poor Max.
We don't even let him in that room!

Smart kid you got there, i wonder where he gets his sarcasm?
Starting him off early huh?

Brett blames his *gas* on the dogs. I'll be like "Oh Gross! cant you do that in the other room?" He'll laugh and say "i didnt do it, Bear did!" Yea good answer smarty pants, that particular dog isnt even in the room! He'll just randomly pick a dog, even if their not in the room, i swear hes not the brightest crayon in the box sometimes!

Hi! I am new here and have been going through some of the posts. I dont know how well it would work with a boy, but when my daughter was 2 and a half I read the book called "Potty Training in Less Than a Day". It sounds silly and the first reaction is to roll your eyes and say "yeah right" but my daughter only had 2 accidents (and one was my fault cuz I tried to make her hold it) after that day and she is now almost 6.

The basic idea is to feed the kid a lot of liquid and have them spend the day in a room with easily cleanable floors. Everytime they have an accident, the kid has to clean it up. My daughter thought I was crazy the first time I handed her a rag and some cleaner, but after a 3 hours she got tired of cleaning the floor and started trying to get to the bathroom. I still had her wear pull ups at night and if I knew we were going to be out for a long time with minimal access to a bathroom.

Little does Brett know that the dogs snicker among themselves and blame him when one of them lets loose!

LOL That is so funny. I remember potty training - Good Luck with that.

I think boys are harder to train then girls. I didn't even try with my boys till between 2-1/2 and 3. Of course if you are brave, and don't mind him standing up to pee (LOL Yes they can make a horrible mess first starting out) Throw some cheerios in the toilet and tell him to hit the targets. My mom always swore the best way was to "bribe" them. IF and when they use the potty, give them a small treat. (I used M & M's. If they went on the potty they got a few, and it was the only time they would get them. Worked as great motivation)

As for the DH thing, mine does that all the time. If he blames Rocky and Rocky is in the room, he will give DH the head **** and I swear he makes a noise like Huh? LOL Everytime. If Rocky is not in the room and he tries to blame Rocky, that is a different story, but I will not repeat my comment to him on those ocassions LOL

My son sort of has a German accent since my parents talk German to him.

When he lets one rip he says "Scuse me dat mine fart".

At least he's polite!

LOL Cindy that is so cute. Just like the no balls story you previously told. You know your son is at the perfect age. If I could I would have one and keep them his age. They are so precious and they grow so fast.

At least he's polite now, just wait and let DF and SS have their infulence over him LOL j/k
