last week was our first major focus on potty training and we knew dax was ready. we'd half heartedly tried before, but it just wasn't sinking in. we'd previously gotten him to go pee pee in the potty, but it would take him a very long time to get the job done and he'd never alerted us to the fact he needed to go. this time we let him pick out a toy and he selected "fred" from big hero 6. we let him buy the toy and then we put it on our mantle so it could stand for some motivation. we explained to him that if for the next week he tried his best to go pee pee in the potty all week long that one week later he could get "fred". the very next morning was sunday. he decided after breakfast that he'd like to wear big boy underpants to church. will and i were slightly unsure, but we know that our boy has determination. we reminded the sunday school teacher that this was his first outing in big boy undies and they noted they'd frequently remind him.
it was a long two hours during church and sunday school. i was just curious how our little one was doing and i was praying things were going well for him. when ss was over i rushed through the halls and was excstatic to see him in the same shorts we dropped him off in! after we picked him up will took him potty at church and then on then we headed out to the playground so he could burn off some energy. after playing he told will he needed to go potty so we went back inside the church to let our big boy go once more. he did so well on his first outing so we let him go to school on monday in big boy pants.
