so this morning, i went and bought micah some big boy underwear. the star wars ones were a hit with him. he liked the disney ones too but not as much as the star wars ones. he has requested darth vader underwear, so i'll have to look out for those. anyways, so far we've had pee in the potty, on the floor, and on the carpet. luckily, all poop has made it in the potty. and that's only because i've caught him during the first push and rushed him to the potty. at least when he's had accidents, he was able to tell me. and this is the only time i'm glad that malia likes to take sheets and blankets and lay them out all over the carpet in her room, making some accidents easier to clean up.
so that's what's happened so far for the first official day of micah in underwear. i'm about to do my 3rd load of laundry. (it's not even 6pm!) and i've forgotten since the last potty training about how close my face would be to poop, the toilet, and his bottom. with diaper changing, there is usually an arm's length distance ;). thank God he hasn't put his hands into the potty. and i just keep reminding myself that boys are harder to potty train than girls.
