Max will start preschool at the end of August.
He needs to be potty trained before he can go to preschool.
We have been working on the potty training thing for a few weeks now.
Last week, I showed Max the box of diapers, I said "Look at how many diapers we have left."
I continue, "Max, this is the last box of diapers. When these are gone, there won't be any more, the diapers will be ALL GONE. After that, you will need to wear underwear and go potty all the time, and keep your pants dry. Doesn't that sound fun?"
Max nods in agreement.
"OK Max," I say "So tell me, what are we going to do after all of these diapers are gone?"
Max says "Buy some more!"
That's pretty much the attitude we've been dealing with for the last while. We talk and talk and talk to Max about how he needs to wear underwear, because the teachers at school will not change diapers.
However, today, we had a breakthrough :0)
Max did something on his own (related to potty stuff) that he had never done before!
Are you curious? Do you want to know what he did?
Before I tell you, here is a question, and I would like you to give me your opinion.
Our preschool requires that the kids be potty trained before they can attend classes. If you have a kid who can change his own diaper, does that count as being potty trained?
Yes, he really did it. He changed his own diaper.
