Potty Training: Day 4 AND Opening Day!!

Well, I mentioned yesterday that Day 4 could be interesting....and it's because Owen, Daddy, and Grandpa Steve (Tony's Dad) all went to the Chicago Cubs Opening Day Game! We had been joking for a while that I would be working hard on potty training for a couple of days and then he was going to take him on Thursday and mess it all up....luckily, it didn't go that way!

I packed a couple of bags for Tony to use on their for the train trip-they took the Amtrack train up, and then one for the game. They left one bag at a locker at union station so it was less to lug around with them all day. They left bright and early yesterday morning at 6:00 and didn't get home until 10:30. It was a long day, but Tony said Owen did great....and the best thing?.....only 1 wet pull-up ALL DAY!!! Tony said he was going to try and take him to the bathroom every 45 mins or so and for the most part he was able to do that. He said Owen was very cooperative about going and even did well in the new situations (the train bathroom, the wrigley "troughs" as Tony calls them, and different restaurant bathrooms). He said the one pull-up that was wet was hardly so that he actually had to check the little sensor to make sure! I'm so proud of both of my boys! One for a daddy that was so good about taking his little boy to the potty all day long and one for a little boy that did well outside of his home surroundings! So I count Day 4 as a success!

Here are a few pics from their day:
