"Of all the animals, the BOY is the most unmanageable!" ~ Plato

He never ceases to amaze me....

I've done my fair share of bragging about my boys.....Brennen in particular just blows me away lately. Because simply having a 60+ word vocabulary, knowing AND using several sign language signs, and having an awesome sense of humor isn't enough....he's added something else to his list of feats. Several days ago, while he was tugging at the back of his diaper, I decided to let him run wild and naked for a bit. Just for kicks, I suggested he try to sit on the toilet. We've been reading some potty books (good readin) and he's totally into flushing. Well, he sat up on that big ol toilet (practically doing the splits!) and ....passed gas (to put it gently) He was so proud of himself. I went out and bought him a cute little potty seat because I figured, eh, we'll need it sooner or later. TODAY, he was saying poopy and pulling at his shorts so I mentioned we should do that on the toilet. HE DID IT! My gosh, the kid's not even 18 mos until Thursday but today, he pooped on the toilet! I am just shocked and amazed. This is HUGE for a boy to be doing this so early. Anybody else out there have a boy who started using the toilet at 18 mos? I'm so proud of him! He was so happy too.......Maybe I can get him fully trained by the time he's 18 mos! I think if anyone could do it, Brennen could!

Whoo-hoo! So funny, I just finished writing a little article on tips for potty training a stubborn kid! My little guy was potty trained by the time he was 2. He's a live wire and all about gettin things done. My oldest was 4 before he would finally "poop" in the potty. It was ridiculous. Anyway...sounds like this one will spare you some frustration!

Way to go Brennen. My oldest trained at 2.5 years old...my youngest is still happily in diapers at 4 months. I can hope he'll train sooner than his brother. We'll see.

Wow! I am impressed. My Paul was 2 in April and is no where near potty training. Actually he is just starting to talk with a vocab not even close to 60 words. Yeah!!! for Brennen!
