House Arrest

I apologize ahead of time if I do not respond to your email, text message or phone call over the next 3 days it is because we are in a self inflicted, full blown lock down at the Winberry house where a watchful eye will be glued to Caleb reminding him "tell Mommy/Daddy if you need to go potty".

Ready or not operation House Arrest aka Potty Training has begun!

Let's run through the check list and see if we have everything....

1. The "3 Day Potty Training" manual (thanks Kimberley for letting us borrow it).....CHECK!

2. A trash can where Caleb will tell his diapers goodbye forever (cross my fingers really hard).......CHECK!

3. Options for disposing properly of all pee and poop.....CHECK!

4. Multiple pairs of big boy underwear.....CHECK!

5. Various beverages to choose from in effort to create more opportunities to run to the bathroom......CHECK!

6. Treats and Rewards for positive reinforcement......CHECK!

7. Treats for the Mommy for having to clean up any accidents and as a reward for staying calm for the next 3 days.....CHECK!

8. A willing participant.....hmmmm I'll get back with you on this one.
