FREEDOM FRIDAY: Why I Refuse To Buy Another Pull-Up!

Posted by Sharmetra, The Mother and Daughter Relationship Renovator at 12:56 PM
I decided to do something a little different on Fridays. Instead of focusing on motivating, empowering, etc., I'm going to give you all an even closer look at my journey by blogging about things in my personal life that effect me from day to day. I know that I have followers from all walks of life, and sometimes we just need somebody to understand what we go through. So, Freedom Fridays will be dedicated to giving my followers a glance into my world as Wife, Mom, Teacher, Sister, Aunt, Friend, and G.O.A.L. Model! Enjoy!

I absolutely REFUSE to buy another Pull-Up! While on my journey to GREATNESS, I have to stop every 20-30 minutes to make sure that my 2 year old son goes to the potty. (Yes, G.O.A.L. Models have to potty train the kids also)! He actually does really well when I allow him to run around without any underwear on and he does well WITH underwear on. However, when I put a Pull-Up on him, he still pees in it as if he has on a pamper. Go Figure... He doesn't even attempt to pull the Pull-Up up or down. It's still just a "pee and poop" holder to him. And now that I think about this potty training gig, I never purchased Pull-Ups for either of my daughters when they were being potty trained. So obviously, consistency, patience, and a good ol' pair of underpants works just fine and costs less too!

In essence, as I continue on my journey to GREATNESS, there was actually one thing that I realized about potty training that will definitely help me along the way.

G.O.A.L. Model Tip:

Don't be afraid to revisit and revise your goals! Even though we won't be participating in the Pull-Ups Club anymore, the ultimate goal is for him to be potty trained and there is definitely more than one way to accomplish this goal!

I fell into the pull ups club when training my son. The thing that did the trick was UNDERWEAR!! And of course, taking him to the bathroom every 20mins.....but it worked. I think it was more me being prepared to put the work in and not just him being ready. Potty training is work.

But I like the pull-ups for naps and bedtime so that I will not have to get up in the middle of the night or worse, change the linens in the morning, (in my high-pitched whining voice)!

;)

smooches,
