Boot Camp


Joseph has seriously been ready to potty train for a long time. We just never decided when to take the plunge. But when our nanny requested some vacation time, we found ourselves faced with 6 consecutive days off with him. We knew it was now or never, so yesterday was Day 1 in big boy undies. No diapers except for sleepy time and we're not bothering with pull-ups. We're talking potty boot camp here.

Not bad yesterday: 1 initial flood in the morning, and 2 minor sprinklings early afternoon.

Today: bone dry!!
Which called for a trip to Gifford's for some chocolate marshmallow ice cream after dinner.



Tomorrow I have to work. May the force be with Papa.
