So, we had decided it was about time to start training the boys to use the potty. The people voted, we decided to train both boys at once, we bought a second toilet, spent some time putting them on it fully dressed to sort of get the idea, etc. Then all the menfolk got sick and we decided that wouldn't be a good weekend to try. Then we figured we would try on Josh's next four day weekend, which, happens to be this weekend coming up (Veteran's Day).
HOWEVER. I took the boys to the doctor's Monday for their flu shots and as he was checking Zeke, the dr. said, "Now, you don't want to worry about potty training boys this young. If you push them before they're ready, they're going to have a lot more accidents then boys who are older and more ready for it." Basically, he told me to wait until Zeke walks up to me and says, "Mother, I am fully ready to be out of diapers and using a toilet like you and Father do. Please help me with this process." Or something along those lines.
So, now I don't know what to do. Do I try it this weekend and see how it goes? Do I wait until Zeke literally tells me he wants to use the potty? Who knows how long that could take. Granted, he is picking up the vocabulary necessary, but he could be four years old before we get to that point. Do I just wait until he's 3, which really means we'll wait until we get to Alaska, because really, what's the point in trying before then when that move and all that's going to come with it will just throw him off and he'll probably spend about a month in diapers again anyways?
Since I'm at a loss, I'm going to leave it up to you again.
