Maxfield is pretty much completely potty trained. There are the occasional accidents but for the most part he is diaper free and has been for over a month.
Call it advice for people that may be potty training their boys or whatever; I just wanted to document a few observations.
1) A few weeks ago, Max and I came home from the playground, both of us covered in sand. We hopped in the shower. While I was rinsing him off he told me he had to pee. I told him it was okay for him to pee in the shower, which he did. For the next two weeks that is the only place he wanted to pee. He would walk into the bathroom, pull down his pants and pee on the shower stall doors.
2) When a three year old says he has to pee, he means RIGHT NOW. Not in a minute, which is the time it takes to walk to the bathroom and pull down his pants and get his aim lined up. It means right now as in you have 10 seconds to do all of that.
3) When a tree year old says he has to poop, he means in about a half an hour. And although you rush to get him to the bathroom once he tells you he has to go (see #2 ((pun totaly intended)), he will just sit on the toilet and hang out, swinging his feet, chit chatting about Diego. And just when you think it was a false alarm, and you try to remove him from the toilet, he will go. I do realize it is better to err on the side of caution with this one. It is better to wait it out than to have an accident.
4) Toilet paper is so much different than wipes.
5) Discussions about who has a penis and who doesn't, are almost a daily occurence.
