Potty training update #2

Jackson wanted to wear big boy underwear yesterday so I conceded even though we had a play date. I figure this is one of those things that I "get paid" to do. As I have mentioned before I not only see being a SAHD as a calling, I see it as my job. Every job I have had has the things your REALLY do not like to do. The CFO says that when those things come up you have to "eat that frog." I forgot what book that was from but I like it. So..... I ate that frog.

I packed heavy for the play date with extra shoes (sandals) and two sets of clothes for Jackson. Everything was going great until panic struck when Jackson called from the top of a tower "I need to go poopie!" I jumped into action.... Unfortunately Addison also said she needed to go and she got to the pottie first. By the time I ran back to the back pack to get the other potty seat adapter thingy Jackson had overshot his mark. I felt bad. I consoled him and assured him that there was nothing wrong, accidents happen. He said he wanted a pull up on. The rest of the day he was perfect. Oh well, another day:)

Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

Potty training 3 at once - I feel much sympathy. We are in the process of potty training our third (not triplet, though). You would think we would be great at it by now. But my youngest is the most stubborn of all. Good luck to you. I blog about our life over at
