Today I have decided that I am done!

What am I done with you ask?

I am done with potty training!

Now, don't get too excited it is not because my adorable almost 3 year old is miraculously trained and we no longer have a need for diapers, pull-ups and wipes. (Oh, how I wish is were so)

Today during nap time I heard Karter stirring in his room. Since he is a rather active child this is normal for him. He usually needs some time in his room to wind down and then before long he gets his much needed nap. But today was different. He seemed to be stirring a little too long.

Nothing could have prepared me for what I would find when I walked into the room.

I knew something was up when half way down the hall I got a huge whiff of poop! I opened the door cautiously hoping for the best! But instead I found a totally naked Karter holding a hand full of dirty wipes (I at least have to give him props for trying to clean himself up). Karter looked up at me and said "Mommy, there is poop everywhere"! It was not an understatement!

At this point I decided I could either laugh, cry, or yell! Fortunately for Karter I decided to laugh. I mean really, what are the odds that this would happen on the day Nathan is going out of town, and the builders have my laundry room completely torn up?

After using an entire bottle of carpet cleaner, a whole roll of paper towels and more towels than I can count I was finally able to get Karter cleaned up, into a DIAPER and back down for his nap!

I see a trip to Brookshires to rent a steam cleaner in my very near future!

So if you see Karter in a few years and He is still wearing a diaper you will know why!:)

Bri did about the same thing at that age. She didn't try to clean it up tho. She got rather creative with the carpet, the walls, toys and even the window. Except I didn't laugh. Instead I called Trevor to come home from work 'now' and help clean it up. Don't tell her I told you, hehe.

I don't know if it makes you feel better but my 3 plus year old is finally pretty well trained but what a battle it has been. I try not to talk about it because it makes me crazy but wow, it is the most frustrating thing. I'm so sorry!
