We're out of diapers for good! For the first time in 11 1/2 years I don't have to buy diapers, change diapers, smell diapers.... I'm so excited!

And it happend so easily. Now, before you going saying, "I'm so jealous, I've been trying for a year, how did you do it so fast?!" I'm going admit something. I waited until Hunter was ready. I didn't push, I didn't fight. I just waited. I pushed the older two kids and struggled for a year with both of them. This time I wanted to be more laid back and let Hunter lead. He wasn't ready until now. So, at 3 1/2 years of age, he was finally ready. It just clicked! He's been in underwear for a week now and so far we only had one accident. That was because we went for a hike and Hunter decided it was better to go in his pants than in the bushes!

OK. I just found you and it was like you were sent from heaven. I didn't push it, I swear, and he is dry, dry, dry but REFUSES to poo poo in the potty. Advice?

Well, I'm never above bribery! Candy and toys work well to get the kids to do what we want. If you've tried that avenue maybe call the doctor's office and speak to the nurse. They sometimes have really good advice. My middle child was impossible to potty train and I called the nurse at the peds office more than once!
