Potty Training - take 2

Jamie and I decided that this past weekend was it... we HAD to be diligent about Sean's potty training. So, enter the Lance Potty Training Boot Camp. Saturday was it - no more diapers/pull-ups (other than naptime/bedtime). On Friday, we told Sean that when he woke up, he was a big boy and big boys don't wear diapers. WE dais we would take him to the store to pick out some brand new big boy underwear, and fortunately, he was super excited!

Saturday we went to Target to pick some out (I bought the last batch, he didn't get to physically pick them out... this may have been the key). He was SO excited all the way to the store, and was quite irritated with me when I had to pick up a few other random items. When we got the aisle with the "goods", his excitement reached a whole new level... it was so funny to watch! He picked out Yo Gabba Gabba, Thomas the Train and Toy Story underwear (no worries, we have Mickey, Incredibles, Nemo and Cars at home. We literally have all bases covered!)

When we got to the check out line and had to put the underwear on the belt, Sean started FREAKING out. I think he thought the checkout lady was going to keep them. She was so sweet though, and put them in a separate small bag JUST for him to carry. All was well in Sean's world again! On the way out of the store, he literally told about 10 people that he just got big boy underwear. It was so funny and I was SO happy he was so excited, but a little embarrassing too! ;-)

The rest, well, it's pretty much history. We had one small accident Saturday night right before bed, but he has been dry EVER SINCE! Monday we even sent him to school in his big boy underwear (of which he happily pulled down his pants for everyone, several times, to show them) - and still no accidents! I can honestly say I have never been more proud of my Sean man! Tuesday he got to go to the store to get some M-n-M's for staying dry, and today he asked if we could have "Spaghetti's" for dinner if he stayed dry all day.

Let me tell you, that was the best spaghetti I've ever had!!!
