It's official...

Weston is now potty trained! What's funny is that he was ready and I was not. Hearing that boys are much harder than girls and not to expect him to be potty trained until he's 3, I was fine with waiting until January. Also, we have trips planned this summer - I'm flying by myself with the boys to Baton Rouge at the end of this month, driving to Salt Lake in August and Reno in August, going to Hawaii with the boys in September and Disneyland in October - so I really didn't want to potty train him until after all of our traveling.
But when he started seeing his other friends using the potty and getting treats, he decided he wanted to also. This child will do anything for candy!! He has been in big boy underwear for a week now with a few small accidents. He now even tells me when he needs to go potty with out me reminding him. He's doing so well with it, so I am very proud and happy for him. I will just have to make sure he goes to the bathroom every time we see one while we are traveling and hopefully everything will be ok.




Weston's potty training poster - I'm not very crafty, so this is what you get from me - but it worked. Every 3rd space had a picture of a piece of candy. So, when he put a sticker on that space, he would get candy. Every 30th space had a picture of a character from "CARS", so he would get a "CARS" car when he put a sticker on that space.



Weston's Candy Jar - for every 3 stickers he put on his poster, he was able to get one piece of candy out of the jar.

He is sooo good and got potty trained very fast! I may have to steal your great chart idea and get Talia going. Love the pic of Wes holding the candy!

Congrats! It's such a big accomplishment for the MAMA's I think. All of your trips sound like so much fun!

I'm jealous! My 3 almost 4 year old boy still rarely tells me he needs to go potty...I always have to ask him! He's darling, by the way!
