What Do You Get After 5 Days of "3-day potty training?"

Well, in the Bickerton Home, you get yourself a big box of PULL-UPS.

Yup...there she is, my big girl who is 100% capable of being 100% potty-trained...but has decided that it pleases me too much...and that's bad for her REP. So, now we just go potty when SHE wants to...but I'm not cleaning up any more pee - hence the Pull-Ups.

Look at my little man...he's just hoping these big, pink pants won't be hand-me-downs.

These pictures make our big potty-training efforts look like a lot of wasn't...but I'm having fun, now, as I look back!

I guess it turns out that, sometimes, spending a lot of money on non-biodegradable material filled with chemicals is better for the environment AND your health...well, better for my home environment...and my mental health!

Put potty training, not your sanity, on the back burner. Don't let it even simmer, just turn the darn knob to off.

And shoot, when did your boy get big enough to sit up supported??? Cuties, both of them!
