Potty Training Update

Well, Daven and I enjoy eating the M&Ms...that counts right?! After buying all the goodies to conquer potty training, Daven decided he just wasn't ready. The first day he did great and seemed excited about sitting on his potty, but after that he'd start to throw a hissy fit when we asked him if he needed to potty...bribery didn't even work and he REALLY didn't like the idea of only getting one M&M each time (he's got a sweet tooth like his mama).

On top of that, he HATES the big boy undies - it's like we are torturing him when we ask him to put them on (we've washed them in whisk to help soften them up, but he still hates them)! 

The real kicker? He peed in his big boy undies and could have cared less...doesn't that just seem uncomfortable? When we asked him if he peed, he just shook his head no and ran away - we didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday son!

SO, we are taking potty training VERY slowly, like snail speed slow! Why traumatize or force the issue when he doesn't want to actively participate AND his brother will be here in 52 (+/-) days! I really don't want to deal with D peeing and pooping all over the floor while trying to nurse AND clean up explosive infant diapers...isn't parenthood glamorous?!
