Good and Bad about Professor



Good thing about Professor:  he is starting, on his own, to potty train.  I am SO not ready to start this.  (Read, denial that I actually have to potty train 2 boys.)  I guess he is.  Almost every time I change his diaper in the past week, he’s asked to go sit on the potty.  And then, every single time, he pees.  I’ve been wondering if it was just him suggesting it so I started asking him at odd moments.  He’s been game every time.  And gone every time.  I bet if we put underwear on him he’d be potty trained.

I, however, am not interested in letting him do this because it means a lot of attention.  Honestly, I just want to potty train both boys at the same time.  Let’s rip that band-aid off all at once!  I will wait until they are 3 and I am ready.

Bad thing about Professor:  We had to carry him kicking and screaming through the mall today.  We went to the store, had lunch out, and then went to the mall to let the kids play at the kid corner thing.  It was jammed.  There were BIG kids there, running very fast.  But they all seemed to enjoy it and the big kids were very respectful of every one’s space.  The kids ran.  A lot.  And then it was time to leave so Professor screamed and screamed.

In fact, today was an off day for him.  There was lots of screaming to be had the whole day long.  He only wanted me and I only had patience for so much.

    But if he potty trains maybe Pirate will get interested and it will all be over with. Then you won’t have to buy anymore diapers :) While I don’t have twins I did potty train 2 at once, it was also a boy/girl combo, they were 2 and it wasn’t nearly as bad as I had imagined it to be. Good luck whenever you decide to venture down that road!

    I would’ve loved for Aidan to be so interested! Maybe he’ll train quickly and then help Pirate do it. Honestly, potty training boys can be frustrating so doing it one at a time may help lower the stress, especially if you think Prof. will be a quick learner. And just think of no diapers! I dream of that day. :) Good luck, let us know how it goes.

      Pirate is not much of a follower, more of an instigator. But we’ll have to try it when I’m ready!
