Potty Training

Maddox has been peeing and pooping in the toilet almost daily for the last 3 weeks - sometimes it's once a day, sometimes multiple times a day. He got past the scary part of pooping within the first week which is great. He has been letting me know for a couple of months as soon as he pees. He told me one day and I asked if he wanted to sit on the potty, he ran to the bathroom and pee'd. And that is what we've been doing the last several weeks. So in the midst of our extremely busy summer, I scheduled in potty training. It was not on the agenda and things had to be cancelled so we can do the 3 day method. I want it to be known I am not ready for this, lol. I would love to be done with diapers but June and July are all pretty tightly planned out and this was one more thing to add in. However, I don't want a perfectly good opportunity to pass by either. We are a day and half into it and I don't think we are going to come out of it wearing undies only. The theory is to load them up with liquids, forcing them to pee often. So far this morning, Maddox had pee'd 4 times in underwear in 35 mins. He was peeing about every 7 mins. By the time I got him cleaned up and a mess, he was making another one elsewhere, lol. We'll see how the remaining time goes... I asked him this morning where is he suppose to pee and he points to the tub and says there. Ugh!
