Potty Training

Some kids just catch on and some don't. My nephew Evan who is younger than David has been potty trained for awhile now and doesn't seem to have any problems. Well, David gets the pee part. It's the other part that he doesn't seem to understand. So, we are now trying the "You get a new Hot Wheel car if you go poo poo in the potty" trick. It seems to be working, a little. He has gone once but, not on his own. He hasn't ever said that he needs to go potty unless Ben says that he needs to. Which usually happens right in the middle of Sacrament meeting. I am trying to get him trained before the family reunion campouts this summer. It would make life easier. He is my last and it would be nice not to buy diapers but it will mean a new stage of life for me and I don't know if I am ready for that yet. I want to stay as young as I think I am. Not how I really am.

good luck penny. peyton just started it on his own..I didn't try with him. He is my last also and I'm SO glad to be closer to no diapers. It makes me feel old though..I've always had a baby when I had a 2 year old!! I hope he picks it up before your camp outs. How old is he?? We should get our kids together to play sometime and catch up :)

Good Luck! :) I want to get my little one potty trained and she will only be two in two weeks. I don't think you have anything to worry about with your age. I think you are very beautiful no matter how young you are. :)
