It probably is. After 4 successful potty trips on Monday I was thinking to myself, "Wow, this is super easy. Potty trained all in one day. I'm super mom." Then we had 2 successful trips on Tuesday, and just 1 successful trip today. Needless to say, my excitement and confidence in the potty training adventures has come to a screeching halt. He might be ready, but I'm not so sure that I am. It is exhausting work. And my life is already kinda exhausting. We are spending so much time pulling off shorts, removing diapers, sitting on the potty, standing on the potty, sitting back on the potty, yelling for no good reason, putting diapers back on, only to start all over again 5 minutes later. I'm exhausted just writing about it. I'm beginning to think that Joey saying that he has to go potty is a game to him. He's smart. He knows that he can get my undivided attention for approximately 5-10 minutes just by uttering the famous p-word. So he says it ALL OF THE TIME! I feel like we are spending more time in the bathroom than any other room of the house. And I don't think it's working. He still peed in his diaper, and on the floor, and in the bath tub. Ahhh, the joys of toddlerhood.
