In the Trenches

For whatever reason, today is the day I have chosen to get serious about potty training.  The stars fell into alignment today.

How’s it going, you ask?

Well . . . Preschooler D is being pretty cooperative.  He is wearing the underwear.  He’s being good about taking breaks to try.

How many pairs of underwear are in the wash from today?

Five.  He hasn’t made it yet.

I want to quit, but I realized something this afternoon.  I’m forever complaining that my boys want to do everything perfectly as soon as they try.  It frustrates me that if they don’t think they can succeed right away, they don’t want to try.

If I let D quit, won’t I be doing the same thing?

Stay tuned.
