He's a Big Kid Now!

Let me tell ya...It has been a LONG seven days! Last week we decided it was time to get down and dirty and finally get Ethan potty-trained! We started trying back before Emma Kate was born and he wasn't ready so we gave him a few months and tried again- but, of course, with no luck!
So, last Tuesday we started by bagging up all his pull-ups and putting him in undies full-time. I knew it was going to be rough, but I wasn't quite prepared for it all! Seriously, from Tuesday to Saturday, we did nothing but beg him to use the potty and clean up accidents! We filled him up with liquids and attempted to sit him on the potty about every 15-30 minutes but he refused to go! He even had an accident IN Wal-Mart!!! Just imagine....we are standing in the toy isle and I look over and he has pee running down his leg! I freaked! We bribbed him with toys, new Thomas the Train name, we tried it! To say the least-it got old, quick! I was so close to giving up!
But then, we woke up Sunday morning and he was dry and when I asked him if he needed to go he said YES!! And he has been accident free for FOUR days now! It's great!!
Alright, that leaves one in diapers! I can see the light!
