Potty training Day 2

 Today Isaac had many successes in the toilet- I didn't keep count.  He made lots of trips to the bathroom.  About half of the time he initiated going to the bathroom on his own, and he raked in the jelly beans. 

Accidents: 1 To his credit he was in the bathroom, he just couldn't get the pants down in time.

Interruptions: 2  I needed to help with food for a funeral so I put him back in diapers and he stayed with a friend for an hour (he stayed dry).  During nap time he was back in diapers too.

Still waiting for #2.  

The older children had early release from school today and I couldn't devote as much one-on-one as I would have liked.  Ideally I would clear the calendar of any activities, outside distractions, neighbor kids, or trips and just focus on potty training boot camp for 3-4 days like I did for the older children.  Unfortunately I kept waiting for such a time...and I've come to realize it just isn't going to happen.  On the other hand, Isaac seems to be a quick study and so far he is the most cheerful child I've ever taught.  To him it is a game and he high fives me and says, "YAY!" after he does a "dry check."
