I've mentioned a little bit about Potty Training before. I kind of "dabbled" in it a bit, but then something would come up (like an appendectomy) and we'd detour.  I wasn't too concerned about it since Abe wasn't yet 2.  I decided though, that I didn't want to have to buy any more diapers just for Abe (mind you, both boys can wear the same size diaper--Abe's at the very tip of one size and Joel's on the other end of it).  Then, even though I wasn't looking for it, I found this video.  And I gave it a go.  We started Thursday night (because Abe was ready, I was planning on waiting til Friday) and he's been doing very well ever since.

I put Dog in underwear and started using the phrase "dry and clean" and having the kids check to see if Dog was still dry and clean.

I let him pick out which pair of undies he wanted to wear.  I thought he might pick the green pair like Dog's first.  He didn't.

We had treats and juice.  I made a big deal of asking him a lot the first day if he was "dry and clean."  If he was he got a treat.  The video recommends double treats for using the toilet.  I would have, but I didn't need to.  We've still been using a diaper for sleeping, but they are a lot drier than they were before and I'm still trying to remember to ask him throughout the day if he is "dry and clean."
