Yah for Ashton

I have been thinking about potty training Ashton for a while now. He got really interested about 7 months ago, so we went and got a frog potty for him and tried to get him excited about it. He would sit on it but he had to have his clothes on. So that was the end of it, I didn't want to make a big deal about it, I figured when he was ready he would let me know.

Well lately I have been trying to get him excited about going potty again, with absolutely no luck, he has been very adamant about not wanting to use the potty. Tonight the boys had a bath and we were getting them out and Ashton started to pee, so we grabbed the potty and tried to get him to go he refused to sit on the potty. But he wanted to stand over the potty, so he did and he peed in the potty. I was so excited for him and he was really excited about it. I think we may have just found a way to potty train Ashton, by letting him stand to pee. It is going to be a bit messier, but if he will do it then I will let him. I even had a toy tucked away for a moment like this. I had bought a toy the other day at target and told him that he could have it when he went pee in the potty. Little did I know he would get the toy 2 days later.

I was so excited about him doing this, I hope this wasn't one time deal. I am so proud of my big boy.
