25 days ago we started potty training Nathan for the millionth time. I would say that he had the system down in January with the small problem that he does not take himself to the bathroom. We didn't sweat it too much and tried again after we ran out of the next box of diapers and the next box of diapers and the next. OK so the box of diapers in August was the last and we decided that we would keep going no matter what.
The picture above shows Nathan's potty sticker charts. We are making progress but here is the clincher. He has never taken himself to the bathroom once. Which means that for every sticker, I remind him or physically walk him to the bathroom so that he will go. If I don't remind him it is like he has never seen a toilet if you catch my drift. Without warning he will go the bathroom. Even if he is sitting on my lap in the middle of Sacrament meeting and has gone 20 minutes before. Sigh.
And now I have dedicated a whole blog post to potty training. But it is rather on my mind.
