Spontaneous Gratitude for the week of the potty

This week, everything has been put on hold for potty training. Logan has never had any interest in it before... but when we went to Ikea, to get the stuff for the homeschool room, Logan watched his sister get to go into the play area... and he could not. Because he was not potty trained. He decided right then and there that was what he had to do. Three days later, we went to get him underpants for the first time.

I have to say, I am BEYOND impressed by this little man. He is 3 years, 2 months... and has pretty much potty trained in 3 days. (I would like to thank Transformer underroos and Trader Joe's organic sucker candies for this wonderful change of events.) We have had three accidents total. Including nights. It is amazing!

So today, I am grateful for:

Full potty charts.

Sales on Legos so he has something fun to turn the chart in for.

Wonderful friends who have been through potty training recently enough where they are ok hanging at my house all day.

A beautiful day, with flowering things everywhere, in which to enjoy these wonderful friends.

The history of Spontaneous Gratitude.

what a genius idea to do a chart (not to mention the lollipops!). I'll have to share your wisdom with my SIL.

Am so jealous! Jacob (3 in July) screams every time I try to put him on the potty and doesn't even want Pull-Ups on.

Congratulations!
I came across your blog while I was looking for a cool picture of a bean tee pee. It's beautiful. From just a few minutes looking around, I can see you put a lot of effort into several areas of your life. I'll be back for more garden updates.

Way to go Logan! We've been potty training "C" here too -- sticker charts and glitter glue prizes for pooping : )
If we lived closer to each other we could hang out and talk potty shop together! : )
