underpants! v. 3.0

Today I had my "I've had it!" moment with potty training.

Well, all things considered, Noah is doing awesome with it. I mean, he literally potty trained in 2 days. So much more than I could have expected.

But he will only go in his potty chair. So this morning in our rush to get out of the house to church after Noah's prolonged tantrum about putting on his boots and coat and then finally getting him buckled into his car seat and pulling out of the driveway he announces



So in we went and I told him {in my anger} that today was the last day for his potty chair and tomorrow it was going to go away and he would have to use the toilet seat {we have a little insert to make it easier}. He seemed okay with this, not thrilled, but fine with the idea.
Then he peed his pants at church.

So tomorrow will be phase 2 of potty training. So we'll see how it goes.

Also: I have anger issues.


  1. DOn't worry Vanessa, I too have anger issues. Shall we start a support group?

  2. It's just like the Robert Munsch book!

  3. I know that this is not a solution but if the potty is small enough keep it in the trunk. Then whenever you go somewhere for the next bit you have a "reserve" You can even go so far as to line the potty with a diaper so cleaning is easy and convenient.

  4. Hang in there! I am dreading the whole potty training thing, just so you know.

  5. i'm shocked that you would have him in underwear at church so soon. that's courageous!

  6. Aw V, firstly, my heart goes out to Noah, potty training is stressful! Secondly, how STRANGE that we're both drawing closer to God on a daily basis and then...WHAM...nice little reality check of how utterly fallible we are. I've started praying in the morning that I'll be able to honour God as a daughter, as a wife, as a sister, as a friend. I even prayed yesterday afternoon for understanding and grace in my relationships and then proceeded to have the most sinful awful horrendous cringe-worthy shout-at-the-top-of-your-lungs argument with James as soon as he got home. It was a NIGHTMARE. *sigh* Thank goodness that a new day begins with grace hey? Love ya girl, keep up the good work you hard working mama!


I love hearing from you!
