Potty Training Time!

I had all intentions of beginning potty training the fabulous foursome starting on Saturday however when I was getting all their underwear bins filled yesterday morning they all decided to strip their clothes and diaper to put on some of their new "unnnies". Well, rather than discouraging them I figured what the heck!

We started at 8:30 with 4 potty chairs on the ground and by 12:00 there had only been 2 accidents! YAY! I couldn't believe how well it was going. I stuck some diapers on them for nap, I know that they say no diapers but there is no way I am going to try and train 4 of them through sleeping when they always wake up soaked. I just don't have it in me right now.


Aubrey woke up from nap at 1:30 crying that she needed to pee. I was thrilled that I brought her and she actually went. BUT...it all went down hill from there! 58 pair of underwear from 1:30 until 6:00 and only a couple times did anyone pee on the potty however Matthew did poop on the potty...Yay Matty! Aubrey is definitely a candy driven girl. She would sit on her potty and go just a little so she could get a piece then do it all over again. Cameron is like a camel and hardly pees, in our out of the potty seat. Brady will start to go then run like heck to make it.

This morning I asked them "Who wants to wear undies?" and surprisingly they all said "ME!" After 35 wet underwear and a roll of paper towels I was happy to see diapers and naptime come! Let me tell you whoever wrote 3 day potty training method clearly did NOT attempt to train multiples. I feel like I can't catch someone peeing because I am still cleaning up the mess from the last accident. At least they are making the attempt and going on the potty sometimes! The kids are really loving the piece of candy (I am sure they are on a sugar high), the stickers and the potty dance so I am hoping that they take off over the weekend and we will have some potty trained kids!

  1. I am right there with you momma! Except my boys bailed out the first morning. They didn't want any part of it. At first my girls did awesome, it was new and exciting. Then day 2 was ok, but day 3 was horrible. They were totally like 'been there, done that and now I'm done with it', completely resisting me. Day 4 was good and day 5 was fantastic! We even went out to a nice restaurant for dinner. I am so proud of them. So hang in there momma, be consistent and just know that you are not alone! Call anytime! I'll cry with you, hehehe
    I love the underwear pics. So adorable!
