Potty Training a Boy

When we opened the card that said, "It's a boy!" I will never forget the thoughts that ran through my head like how would I take care of his circumcision, or that I had always been told that it takes boys forever to learn to use the potty. Then I heard the horror stories of my Husband. But let's not even go there...

So to say if honestly, I was scared. I was scared of all things, boy. I had really never been around little ones other than Charli and truly I thought I would only be a girl Mom even though my gut was scare among boy. 

Then Bryar came along and I realized how not scary he was. The circumcision healed without trouble, I did get pee'd on and probably pooped on too. He never liked the typical baby food and moved straight into cut up foods. 

So when speaking potty training I knew that I would not push the issue. It really was not something I wanted to rush. But apparently he did when started using the potty fully for #2, about 3-4 months ago. Then Charli showed him one day how using the potty was fun and we have been game on since. 

I'm really not sure how but he has been dry for the last 6 days except at night time. Although I am not considering him as potty trained he does remember on his own to go. 

We have been using The Potty Watch for a couple of days but mainly it is just for fun. But I do recommended this for any child that is needing that extra push of fun to go. It plays music and lights up when the timer goes off at your discretion of every 30, 60, or 90 minutes. 

So once again Bryar has proved to me that I should have no fears in this journey of being a boy Mom. That is until he becomes a teenager...

New reader!

I was the opposite, I always pictured myself with a girl, yes, but I had a boy first and he proved to be one of the easiest kids ever. My daughter, on the other hand, is a fire cracker :)

I'm so glad the pt has been going so well!!!

Thanks for the info. This will be very helpful as we potty train our child.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
