My mom called and was about an hour away. So I went into the room that I set up for her and little man came and hung out with me on the bed while I put some of their clothes away and tidied up the room for mom... I decided to just go ahead and change his clothes while we were in there... discovered he had peed in his pull up... so I took it off and went to get a new one. When I came back he had peed and drizzled all over the freshly laundered sheets and blanket! At that point my mom was about a half an hour away. At least it was the afternoon and she wasn't getting there late. I had time to get the bed stuff washed and dried by bedtime... but still! I just couldn't believe it! The boy is damn near potty trained!
Little man is doing great on the potty. Of course he has his good days when he will keep a dry pull up all day and night. Then there are still days when he forgets all about the whole potty thing and has a few wet pull ups. But the great thing is that he is pooping in the potty about half the time!
Baby girl has sat on the potty a couple of times, but since we put the two little ones in their own beds, little man isn't waking her up in the mornings, so she's not racing him to the potty... Oh well. It's pretty early for her to be potty trained anyway. And I'm kind of expecting little man to do a little backsliding once new baby is born... we shall see.
