Potty Time

We started potty training Monday...officially (we think). He has been "using" the potty off and on for 6 months or so, but I decided to really see if he was ready or not. I took off his pants, diaper and anything else he had that might appear to soak up his pee and set the timer for 10 minutes. Every 10 minutes, we went to the toilet and went potty. From Monday, up to yesterday, he had 4 accidents, which I think is just fabulous.

Today...a whole other story. He woke up, I changed his diaper, we went pee on the toilet, and I set the timer. He was looking at me funny and I asked him if he needed to go potty. He looked at me, with that really weird look, and ran off. I jumped up to follow him cause I thought he might try to pee somewhere. I ran to our closet, (i couldn't have been more than 3 seconds behind him) and he POOPED!!! IN MY CLOSET!!! Will and I were like...uhh...ok what now? haha. We cleaned it up of course...but the whole thing just really seemed to upset him. He cried for his diaper so I didn't make a big fuss about it. We took a break today and we will see what happens tomorrow. Poor little closeted pooper ha!
