Potty Training continued...update

Ok, so 2 weeks ago Lil J had had 2 accidents at church.  And the week before he had had 1 accident.  Prior to that had been several weeks of zero accidents.  BUT after the two accidents the lady working in the nursery was insistent that something was wrong with Lil J, that he has diabetes or something else wrong with him.  The only way I could end the conversation (& please her it would seem) was to tell her from now on I will bring him in pull ups (let me also repeat that in December it was the ladies in the nursery who had asked why on earth he was still in pulls ups since he wasn't having any accidents).

So the following week Lil J & myself were both too sick to go to church.  We skipped that week & watched it on podcast a few days later.

Yesterday we went & I had him in pull ups.  No one made any comment about the pull ups or the fact that he had zero accidents & the pull up was totally dry after church.  I didn't actually see the lady who was complaining about him, so maybe that's why.  But I changed him back into undies as soon as we got to the car & he remained dry & accident free all day long.

I am very proud of how well he is doing with the potty training actually.  Still not 100% perfect, especially when he's overly tired, but still, for not even being 3 yet I think he's doing really great.  :)  Just wanted to share that update.

Last night my stepdaughter offered to watch him while we went out to dinner (we were just gonna take Lil J with us, but she offered, so we took her up on it--it's RARE for us to get a date night). When we got home Lil J was still awake. I noticed he was in different pants & didn't have socks now. I assumed he had an accident, but I didn't want to ask. Didn't want my stepdaughter to feel bad or take it the wrong way, even though I was curious as to what happened, simply because of potty training challenges. But I did see the pants & undies & socks in his hamper & they were SOAKED. Even when he has an accident with me it's very small. It's usually at the end of the day, when he's tired, but even then it's just a small amount of pee that gets on his undies & sometimes pants. And then he catches it & stops & finishes on the potty. So I'm not sure if my stepdaughter wasn't available to help him when he needed help or if he's not comfortable asking anyone aside from me & hubby for help. Perhaps asking anyone aside from me & hubby is an issue for him. I sure wish I could get him to pull his own pants down & up. But even then at church he still has to ask so they can take him to the restroom, the toilets aren't just in the playrooms.
