Potty training moments...

I have finally come to terms with the fact that potty training is not a 1 day process, not a 1 week process, not even a 1 month process... well, at least not in our house it's not. But I have a small victory to share with you, one that brings me hope that potty training wont last forever, and that maybe... just maybe... someday soon I will not have to battle with Wyatt (or myself) over going to the bathroom in the toilet.

Last night, after having 0 accidents all day (a victory all in itself), Wyatt told me he wanted to wear underwear to bed. I tried to persuade him that a g diaper (cloth diaper) would be a better choice, but he insisted that he was going to wear underwear to bed.

So, instead of fighting it, I sent him to the bathroom and then put his jammies on over his underwear and prepared myself to have to wash his sheets and bedding in the morning. 

However, this morning, I was more then surprised to find that he not only was dry, but slept in till after 7am (hardly ever happens)! Win win for me! 

Now, he has been dry the last few nights, but I have still been putting him in a g diaper because I didn't think that being dry at night would last... but I think we have finally had a potty training break through... if we can be dry all day AND all night... then in my head that is a victory!
