Are we there yet???? I want to have potty trained children without having to potty train them. Is that TOO much to ask? Yeah, I know, it is. We are on day 2 and have had NO success. I put them on the potty regularly and they get up without going potty only to go on the floor. So far "potty training" in our house has consisted of "training" me to sanitize my floors 3x/day.
Not that anyone wants MY tips but I read a book called "Potty Training Boys: the easy way" (WHATEVER!) that suggest training in sessions. This way takes a bit longer but it seems less stressful to me. I am not sure this is the best approach but it is currently our approach! Despite what I originally thought I'd do I am training both of them together. Neither seems "more ready" at this point so I figured I'd just gut it out.
Doing this while dealing with morning sickness is less than thrilling but not buying diapers for twins will be an AMAZING accomplishment and our bank account will thank us. Everyone says that one day they will just get it and that is my current life boat that I cling to each time I clean pee up off of my floor.
After this accomplishment we will move on to putting the boys back in the same room. Yes, my favorite transition of putting them in separate rooms must be undone for our new arrival. I honestly think potty training will be easier than trying to get them not to party like rock stars until all hours of the night once they are roommates again.
The good news is after these two huge transitions are over the boys should be as ready for baby as we can possibly prepare them to be. Have I mentioned that I have thanked God on a regular basis that we ditched the binky months ago. I cannot imagine having to deal with that before September too! So that is a little bit of what is currently on my plate. I'm off to put some big boys undies in the washer.
