Potty Training Progress Report #463


close to two years,

many, many attempts,

an entire gallon of Simple Green concentrate (after I was tired of the smell of vinegar, our cleaner of choice),

pee in the corner,

pee in the furnace vent,

pee on each other,

pee on me,

pee on the floor,

(lots and lots of pee on the floor)

some more pee on the floor,

some poop on the floor,

poop on the walls,

poop on each other,

poop on the baby,

poop on me,

an exhausted carpet cleaner


a thoroughly,


and totally,



we have



completed the potty training process.

I am pleased to announce that the twins are fully,


and forevermore

potty trained.

(cue angel choir singing hallelujah, as the heavens open and shine the most glorious light)


I need a nap, a vacation, and a massage.

Hooray! And not a moment too soon, considering...

Whoo hoo! Auntie is very proud!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! For the Lord, God omnipotent reign-eth! Forever! Forever! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!...

Should I continue singing? I know I am not an angel chorus, but I do know the song, having sung it in choir...

and then Drew begins....

I so understand, we have the peeing down but if only I could get them to go poop on the potty, yikes. One of my boys even asked to have his diaper to poop in. Any advice?

Carmen O. said...

Annabelle! Shame! Don't remind her! Drew will be the kindergarten-and-still-wearing-diapers kid after these two and all they put you through, Tiff!
Congratulations. Rewards well-earned!

Tiff said...

Hahaha, Carmen! Actually, I think Drew is ready to start. And I'm ready to be done with diapers once and for all! I'll just take it slow, and see what happens! ;)

Jenna, we had a problem with poop in the undies, till my ma-in-law told me she used to take her boys out into the front yard and hose them down when they had an accident in their undies. We did that and it worked really well. If he's holding it in, however, that might just make it worse, so I don't know what to tell you. Good luck!

HALLELUJAH! Hopefully it will be a heck of a lot easier when it it Drew's turn!
