Potty Training Jack

I'm giving this a good go now. We've skirted around potty training for a bit, getting him used to sitting on the potty and trying to convince him that he shouldn't use it as a shoe or a hat.... Today we broke out the cloth pants!

Jack isn't very impressed just yet. He doesn't like being wet. I hate having him do something that makes him unhappy, but if he doesn't like being wet and he can feel it now (instead of being in a nappy where he can't) then I'm hoping he'll make the connection to using the potty before he wees.

So far today he has gone through 4 pairs of undies, all wees. He is coming to tell me he's wet sometimes, and sometimes saying potty after he's wee'd, so I think that is progress. But the last time - which was just before nap time - he said he wasn't wet even though I saw the damp patch, and when I asked him to come over to me so I could change him he got a little tearful. It was nap time though so he was tired and emotional anyway. He's got a nappy on for his nap. I'll stick him in a pair of undies when he wakes up - after a sit on the potty for a bit - and see how he goes from there.

I'm looking at the Gina Ford Potty Training in One Week book. It seems pretty good. I've had it for a while and it's reading that book which has put me off trying to train him seriously  before now. With Jack coming on with his talking he finally checked all the boxes for being potentially ready. Although, I still think it'll take longer than a week judging by today. I think it'll be a few days before he's happy in his cloth pants and with using his potty.

Once he's got the hang of it though I'm sure he'll speed along. The offer of rewards works very well with my eldest (some might call it bribary, but if it works.....) I might start with the offer of some Toy Story and Spider-Man underpants from Asda! He's been asking for them for a while now :o)

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
