Could I really be this lucky????

Not to jinx anything, but we have had no potty accidents at our house for the last 3 days.....!!! Could I really be lucky enough to only have one in diapers when the baby is here???

This is the 4th time Gavin has decided he wants to forgoe the diapers. It drives me nuts because there have been 3 separate weeks where it's been completely his idea and then after a week was up, he was done with it. I'm soooooo hoping that doesn't happen again!

A couple weeks ago when we were putting Gavin to bed this was Keith and Gavin's conversation..

Keith: Gav, how come you don't want to use the potty like Brock and Parker do? (Our neighbor boys who he thinks are soooooo cool!)

Gavin (as serious as can be): Dad, I just like dipeys (his term for diapers).

It was the funniest thing! Yesterday he said out of the blue..."Mom, I don't need dipeys anymore." I'm hoping he's really serious!!! But in any case, I love that he wants to make an effort and it felt good when he was talking to Grandma and said, "Grandma, mom is sooooo proud of me!" At least he knows I love him no matter what!

You never know. You'd hope. I've heard that once another baby comes along they sometimes revert and think they should be like the baby and need diapers again.

Fingers crossed! I had just one in diapers when Alec was born-it was so nice...not happening again I'm sure :o) I just got lucky!

He is a Big Boy, and Grandma is soooo proud of him too! Tell him I love his new Toy Story Big Boy Unders!!

I think he's on his way for real this time. We love Gav!
