3 Day Potty Training! YIKES!!!!

Potty Training....
I figured I better blog about this HUGE even taking place this week! I am going to attempt to potty train my 19 Month old Brody! Thanks to some tips from some friends I have decided to go with the 3 Day Potty Training Method by Lora Jensen. If you are interested in reading her e-book you can go to

I will blog at the end of each day and let you all know how it goes. I am really nervous! He's still pretty young and doesn't have too much of a vocabulary. I mean he couldn't vocally tell me he has to go to the bathroom. But according to Lora Jensen they don't have to be able to tell you vocally. So we will see how it goes! After these 3 long days of focusing on nothing but Potty Training....if he's still totally not getting it, I'm okay with that! I just figured I better give it a shot before my new baby comes in 7 weeks! If he's not ready that's okay with me we'll do it when he's 2 after we adjust to the newborn.

My preparation:
-Read the E-book by Lora Jensen
-We bought lots of cute little boy underwear! (SO CUTE! ha ha )
-Plenty of Liquids in the house
-M&M's for rewards
-A brand new little Potty chair ( such a huge fiasco picking one out by the way! ) But this is the one we went with  It's $21.00 at Target. It's a stand alone potty but also converts to the seat you put on the regular toilet. And also changes into a stepping stool.


Any tips or advice would definitely be appreciated!
Wish me Luck I think I'll need it!! : )

UPDATE: Just wanted to tell anyone who reads this, we HATED that potty chair pictured above. We took it back and got a different one. It's a green frog and it's $12.26 at Target. It's so much better and easier to use. The one pictured above is a total pain. The pee guard falls off all the time. Then pee gets underneath the seat but it's almost impossible to clean out because it's hard to drain the water once you do clean inside it. And the seat makes a weird squeaking noise everytime Brody sat on it. And it would freak him out. Plus there is just way too much going on with it, too many distractions. My advice is to get a simple potty chair. No need for all the bells and whistles. We actually bought 2 frog pottys. One for upstairs and downstairs. We love it and so does Brody!
