This is approximately how many diapers we go through in a month these days.
That's an average of 16 diapers a day. Sometimes there are more, rarely are there less!
With that in mind, and the fact that the wonderful and generous members of Hardin Valley Church of Christ are STILL providing all of our diapers (Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!)and probably looking quite forward to not needing to anymore, I am considering attempting to potty train the kids this summer. They turn two really soon and I've always heard that it's better to do it in the warm months when clothes are lighter and easier to remove. And I hate to wait a whole year!
Also, with Jonathan's love of removing his diaper, it's really only a matter of time before someone discovers that you can get to the poop and it can be fun!
So, does anyone have any advice for me before I begin the potty journey? I've never potty-trained a child before, but I do have a few ideas. However, I am open to any and all suggestions. Currently, I'm hanging on every typed word of my friend Gen McNulty who is currently potty-training her quads (see the blog list in the right-hand sidebar). They are about a month older than mine, so it makes a good example for me. Please leave me any thoughts you have on the topic. I'd love to have a wealth of information and ideas to choose from!
