End of an Era (part one)

Tomorrow I begin a dreaded task. Something I hate to do. I have done it 3 times in my life. This will be my last.

I am going to begin potty training my 2 yr. old.

Anyone that has done this knows that it is more work for the mom than the child.

It's the end of an era because I have had a little one in diapers for the last 5 yrs. I could tell you everything you need to know about brands of diapers, who has the best prices, which ones work the best, what character Huggies was using 3 years ago....

We have a potty chair and Jeven will sit on it, in fact, he's even gone tee-tee on it a few times.
When we were potty training Jarrett about 6 months ago, Jeven would sit on the potty as well and I kick myself for not jumping on the chance then but....

I hate potty training! It means setting the timer and making a busy toddler sit still for MINUTES (can you imagine the horror!). It means packing extra outfits when you leave the house, running to the public restroom (gross) 5 trillion times in Walmart, it means accidents and tears (I am so embarrassed when they see me cry).

But, it also means no more spending $10 on diapers, no more stinky pants, no more expensive wipes to buy.

It also means that Jeven will no longer be a baby. Which I think is the thing I am dreading the most.
