Potty Training: Day 1

Ai, ai, ai...has it been a day.

We've gone through 8 pairs of underwear, 1 set of sheets and blanket and mattress pad, 4 towels, had 4 pee accidents, 1 poop accident...and 2 successes!

Yikes. I'm worn out and Caleb's in bed a good 30 minutes early without a peep of protest. It's been a long day. I was never as happy as I was tonight to put a diaper back on my boy.

Caleb has done pretty well. He sat on his potty most of the times I asked him to, though it almost always took some kind of distraction: a book, a tv show, a snack, etc. And when he had an accident in his underwear, he let me know pretty quickly.

Jon and I? Well, we could probably use a dash more of patience, and a pinch of experience wouldn't be bad, either. Maybe we'll have more of both tomorrow.

I'll keep you posted!
