BigBoy is officially potty trained!!!!!!
No more diapers. No Pull-Ups either. (And all without terrifying flashbacks! Yeah!)
We went a little 'retro' and invited Potty Scotty aboard for our final stretch of the training track. They are potty training pants like the kind my MIL used but I had no idea they existed. Pull-Ups felt too much like diapers to him and threatened to derail our efforts. He only wears Scotty at night and most mornings wakes up dry. He has even conquered his fear of the giant white throne when we have been out and about (although he still prefers his comfy little potty chair at home) and we have fixed that nasty *directional issue we first had with his new underpants. Why in the world are the cool superheroes on the bum side where you can't see them?
Suddenly he looks 3 inches taller and 5 pounds lighter. His pants are fitting better. It doesn't matter if the diaper bag is empty. I haven't changed a diaper in weeks. Sniff. I do however get to enjoy a play-by-play of all the "action" and color commentary too. Sigh. This is good, right?
(*Please tell me it's not just my kid who wanted to wear his underwear backwards!)
