Potty Training the O-Man, Day 1

So, I have a 3-day weekend, and we decided that it would be a good time to do the 3-day potty training boot camp with Oscar.  First, let me just tell you that boys are different.  And O is different than E was.

First of all, E had to pee every 2 hours or so.  With O, it's been every 45-minutes.  That caught me off-guard.  One, because I'm not as focused as I should be on him, and two because I had no idea.  I probably should have been changing his diaper more often.   So, Day 1 looked like this:

7:30 a.m. -- Took off final diaper and put on BIG BOY UNDERWEAR!!  Went pee on the potty (he's been doing this in the mornings when he wakes up and at night before we go to bed).

9:00 a.m. -- Pee in underpants, but when it was discovered, he was able to pee some more on the potty.

9:45 a.m. -- Started to pee in underpants, but was whisked away to the potty, where he finished.

10:30 a.m. -- Pee in underpants.

12:10 p.m. -- Pee in underpants, but was able to finish on the potty.

1:00 p.m. -- Pee in underwear.

1:15 p.m - NAP

3:00 p.m. -- Woke up dry from nap; a little pee on the potty.

3:45 p.m. -- Pee in underwear while playing with the hose outside, found out what happens when exposed to the sound of running water.

4:40 p.m. -- Pee in the potty!  Not a lot, but some.

4:45 p.m. -- Pee in underwear while washing hands. Again found out the consequences of running water.

5:30 p.m. -- Pee on the floor in bathroom on his way to the potty.

6:00 p.m. -- He announced that he had both pee and poop in his underwear.  Flushed the poop and finished peeing on he potty.

8:00 p.m. -- Bedtime -- Pee on the potty.

Midnight -- Went in to check on him and he had wet the bed, but didn't wake up crying.  He just rolled over to a dry spot.  When I woke him up just enough to put on dry clothes and sheets, he asked me if he could put on a diaper.

So, lots of pee.  Day 1 down.  Lots of work to go.


Go here for Day 2.
