Exciting news

We have some exciting news to share with all of you, Alex is now potty trained!!! OK, so maybe some of you(most of you) don't really care too much about that, but if you're a parent with a little one in diapers, or a grandparent who has to change diapers, you can understand and appreciate our excitement.  We are DONE with diapers at our house.  DONE! Well, we'll still do diapers at bedtime for awhile, but probably not long.  He's picked this up quickly, without a struggle, almost overnight, and without much work from us. It couldn't have been any easier, maybe just a little sooner, but I guess they decide when they are ready.

I've been trying to talk him into using the potty for almost a year, but with no luck.  Oh, he knew what he needed to do, and he could do it, he just absolutely refused to do it, unless it was his idea.  So I've tried to be patient, sometimes without a lot of luck, but I think I did pretty well patiently waiting.  Finally last weekend we talked about it, talked about going to preschool, and told him tomorrow he'd wear the big boy undies.  If we went in the potty, he could get some new Cars 2 undies the next day. I think that sealed the deal for him.  No accidents for several days now!
