Potty Time: “I wear Lightening McQueen Underpants, not diapers, Mom!”

Potty training has gone shockingly well since the last update.  I am slowly but surely starting to realize that my little boy is growing up before my eyes and I can’t do anything to slow it down.  He is no longer a baby and he reminds me everyday…a few times a day, at that!

                We are still without a washing machine (hopefully until this weekend. Thank goodness for tax returns!), so if been continuing to put Brody in Pull-Ups at bedtime.  Monday night, when we were getting ready for bed, I told Brody that I was going to go grab him a Pull-Up.  He said to me, “No.  I can’t wear that diaper to bed!  I’m a big boy, Mommy.  I wear my Lightening McQueen underpants to bed.” 

                Now, I was really taken by surprise when he said this, since he’s never really seemed to mind wearing diapers at bed time.  So I explained to him that I was worried about him wetting the bed and he told me that he wasn’t going to pee in his pants, only in the potty.

                After a long discussion about it (and a serious discussion with a 3 year old is just that, LONG) he convinced me to let him wear big boy underwear to bed.  And guess what??  He made it through not only that night, but every night since!  I am one proud Mama at this point. 

                I am also one sad Mama at the same time.  It seems like the baby-time has been leaving me since he was, oh…6 months old!  I’m not saying I would like him to stay a baby forever, but whenever he does something “grown-up” it really hits me hard.  I’m so happy that I’ve raised such a big boy.

                Sorry this post is less silly than my last Potty Time update.  We haven’t had much of a silly week, more of a Mommy reminiscing week.  So I’m sorry I couldn’t entertain again, but I know many of you have had these “My baby is no longer a baby” moments and if you haven’t yet, believe me, you will soon enough. 

                Thank you for reading my ramblings.  I feel ridiculous being sad about my son wanting to wear underpants to bed, but I can’t help it.  On a more ‘frugal’ note, our diaper money can now be saved for something that is a lot more fun than changing diapers and that list is very long.

                Please reminisce with me and share any proud mommy stories in the comments section.  Also, please don’t forget so follow my blog, follow me on Pinterest, ‘like’ me on Facebook, and share my blog/page with a few friends.  I appreciate all the support I have been getting so far and am thankful for everyone who reads my blog.
