Potty Training

After a nearly non-existent summer here in the UK, I have decided to start potty training Oliver. I was hoping to do it months ago with the summer season but it wasn't warm enough to have him running around with no trousers on, then I was going to do it while in Australia last month but we were never home for more than 2 days in a row !!
Now that winter is drawing near (it is 8 degrees today), the heating has been on since we arrived home, it is warm enough inside the house for Oliver to be wearing no trousers.
I did actually start his training last weekend but he was ill with a bad cold during the week and wasn't in the mood to wear his under pants.
He has a potty in the lounge room and upstairs he has a seat for the big toilet. Yesterday was a really good day - he had no accidents at all!!! I was told that the biggest problem I would have is trying to get Oliver to do a poo in the potty. He so wanted to do one last night he asked for his nappy but I managed to bribe him with a new train if he went on the potty. After about 5 minutes, he said "I'm doing it, mummy". We praised him and gave him big hugs and kisses. I was really so proud of him and he was pleased with himself too!!

LOL! We're in the middle of potty training our 2.5 year old son and it's not fun. He will not have a bar of it not like his older simnple.
The joys of being a parent lol!
~Take care~
