This week I hunkered down and focused on two things at home, Forest’s brushing and Logan’s potty training. And I’m happy to say that we are making great headway with both.
Forest is wearing clothes that he hasn’t worn in months and gets into the car seat without any upsets. The car seat success is HUGE for me and him both. We are going to finish off this week doing it every 2 hours and then move to only 4 times a day next week, not seeing the OT again for 2 weeks.
My insistence on being gentle but consistent with getting Logan on the potty training is paying off this week as he’s no longer upset about sitting on the potty and has been using it because I get him on it regularly. He had an accident last night and he seemed pretty upset about it so I’m hoping this will be the pivotal point when he starts wanting to go on his own. But if not, at least we have a good routine going and for us, that’s 80% of the battle.
The weather is finally getting warmer here so we will be trying to keep up these routines amidst park trips to enjoy the great outdoors. But I think we are in a good place and well on our way to two big successes for this year!
