Daniel was toilet trained just after his third birthday.  We hadn’t even really tried before then because he struggled so much with pulling his pants up and down, but once he got that down and there were three warm days in a row (the program that we used required 1-2 days of nudity!) we started and he caught right on!  Jack will turn three in December.  The chances of having three warm days soon after his third birthday are slim, especially since this past winter was so mild.  So Mr. Thompson and I decided that we’d try to train Jack towards the end of the summer when it was warm and closer to his birthday, but over the past few weeks, Jack’s been asking to go to the bathroom (although he doesn’t do anything once he’s there).  So we decided to give it a whirl.  What do we have to lose…besides my sanity?!?  The best part is that there’s no pressure on Jack to do it because we know that he’s quite young still.  If he does it, GREAT! If he doesn’t, we’ll try again in the late summer/early fall.  I’ll keep you posted 🙂  For now, I leave you with a picture of the bribery!
