William is the midst of potty training. I can finally say he has more successes than accidents!! And as everyone told us, there would be one day that he sort of just “gets it”… and then he will be off and running – and that is exactly what happened!
He actually woke up the other morning (we still put him in a diaper at night) took his diaper off and went to the bathroom – I literally heard the song “HALLELUJAH! playing in my head!!
But… I have enlisted the help of some authors in my quest to get William Potty Trained – let me give you my top 10 books:
1.) Once Upon a Potty (boy version for me – although, I bought the girl one by mistake!) by Alona Frankel
2.) Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi (the illustrations are awesome!)
3.) Lift the Lid, Use the Potty by Annie Ingle (who doesn’t love a lift up flap book!?)
4.) Too Big for Diapers by Random House and John E. Barrett
5.) My Big Boy Potty by Joanna Cole (there’s a girl version too!)
6.) I Want My Potty by Tony Ross
7.) What to Expect When You Use the Potty by Heidi Murkoff (yes, the same lady from all the What to Expect When Your Expecting Books!)
8.) Potty Train Your Child in Just One Day: Proven Secrets of the Potty Pro by Teri Crane (very funny and easy-to-read book – William was not trained in one day by any stretch of the imagination, but it gave me some good tips!)
9.) Mommy I Have to go Potty! by Jan Faull
10.) The Ultimate Party Drink Book – Over 750 Recipes for Cocktails, Smoothies, Blender Drinks, Non-Alcoholic Drinks, and SO MUCH MORE!! (This one’s for Mommy and Daddy. Because let’s face it, we’re all going to need something to get us through this time! Whether you use alcohol or not, this book gives some GREAT drink ideas!!)
