my son was what i thought late in getting the drift. i had training pants on him and he was going on three. he would go in his pants and then come in house and change them. course he just left the dirty ones any old place.

daughter did both herself at about 18 months. i think boys get it, they just don't care.lol

I agree completely Babe!
My boys know when they need a diaper change, they even bring me the wipes a clean diaper, but when I talk to them about going on the "potty" they say "no I dont want to go on the potty, I want to go in my diaper!" lol
the male species sure does start early with their stubbornness

Yep, it's definitely a boy thing. I had 2 that flat out told me they were never going to go potty! And one of them hated a dirty diaper - the minute he was finished he'd be at my side telling me he needed a diaper change. I finally was exasperated and told him it was fine if he never used the potty but I was never going to change his diaper again. It took about 30 minutes of a dirty diaper before he couldn't stand it anymore (he was 3) and he finally said told me in his meanest voice "OK, I will use the potty but I'm never going to like it." And he honestly never had an accident. Obviously he could have been trained long before so I felt very foolish for not pushing it sooner!

well I'm actually a pre-school teacher and it is very true, girls seemed to catch on alot earlier than the boys, but the ages were always so varied. I would have parent coming to me concered on if their child was "normal" and I would have the hardest time convincing them that everyone is different, when they are ready...they will! Pushing sometimes will just make it take longer but encouraging never hurts you just have to know the difference between the two.
Fisher's Mom...I think what you did was brilliant! Very funny!

You are right, of course, deelady. That's why I waited so long to press the issue - I was worried I could screw him up for life if the timing wasn't right.

i agree it's a male issue. my brother is 17 months older than me, & he was wearing diapers while i was already potty-trained! so my Mom was diaperiing her pre-schooler instead of her toddler.

My background check finally went through for the financial company that hired me, so I am starting tomorrow!

I'm driving back to Ontario tonight after I shower and eat and finish packing, and will be staying at my parents house until Friday, coming back to Montreal for the weekend, and doing it all over again lol... And I move into my new apartment on Aug 1st.

WOO for working after 6 months of unemployment!!!!!!!
