Potty Training

So I have decided to start potty training Jackson today to get my mind off of our court date and our current paperwork predicament...... Potty training isn't quite as fun as I thought it would be. (who actually thinks potty training is fun anyways?) Well it is currently 10:11 and Jackson has had 1.5 sippy cups of Sprite and 1 of Gatorade and .5 of water and still NOTHING......It is like a ticking time bomb. Every 15 minutes I make him sit on the potty for 5 minutes. But nothing........so now we are watching some Elmo to help pass the time. We also started our first morning of Tot School and it went really well! Since school is over and I won't be going back to preschool teaching next year I decided to put my energy into some homeschooling or I mean tot schooling.....oh timer is going off! Time to Potty!

If you have any great potty training advice, please leave a comment! I am a total newbie at this!

Tot School

We are praying for you all!!

Potty training...stick with it, it will happen (all that fluid's got to go somewhere)! (Your method has proven to be gold in our house times three...we were uneducated with Hannah).

It's not fun. I'm a big believer on letting them know when they are ready..who cares how old they are:)

How old is he? I foudn that all my kids pottytrained a month before they turned three and we stayed home and focused on it 24/7. Hope you get news about how court went very soon!
