Potty Training & Patriots


Hello Monday.

Wow, what a weekend it was. I’m not going to get too many details about my weekend because all of my daytime hours were spent teaching Ava how to use the potty.

Ava is currently 23 months and she has shown signs of potty training for several months now. With a busy weekend schedule the past few months we were waiting for an appropriate weekend to put some training time in.

We used this 3 Day Potty Training Method by Lora Jensen. I will write a separate post about it soon to give you more details, but lets just say Friday we had about 15 accidents, Saturday we had about 10 and Sunday we had about 5.


I doubted the “method” numerous times, but we never gave up. I’m a very consistent person and Marc is very persistent so we were able to help each other out all weekend. It was a team effort and I think we are winning.


Ava is making SERIOUS progress and I’m so proud of her. By Sunday night Marc and I both agreed that it seemed like Ava aged about 5 years over the weekend. I always thought she was on the mature side, but she showed us even more how she is a quick learner by picking up on her potty training in such a short amount of time.


Speaking of Sunday night, I actually got to watch the Patriots game. (not every second) But it felt amazing. I know that sounds silly but I really enjoy football and it seems like this season I haven’t been able to catch the whole game.

It’s either on WAY past my bedtime, we are out of town, or we don’t get the game. It almost felt like a playoff football game because it was such a nail-biter and I’m so happy the Patriots pulled out a win.


We were all happy campers and this hug from Ava completed my weekend :)

What was something fun you did this weekend?

Who is your favorite football team?

  1. Yay for potty training! I know the three day method is not necessarily the most fun thing but it works! We did it way back when Ayden was just 19 months and he’s been good ever since :-)

    • Do you have any potty training tips? We had to stop for a bit, Ava got a cold and hasn’t been feeling well. I’m so bummed, I guess I had expected too much but I need to let her get better before she can make any progress!
