Okay, for Porter “going commando” means sans diaper. He’s been hinting lately that he no longer wants to wear diapers but instead wants to wear underwear. You may recall my trumpeting his successful bathroom break at school last week. His teacher asked us if we wanted to send him to school in underwear. So yesterday we tried putting him in underwear in the morning and set the timer to take him to the bathroom every thirty minutes. From the morning until we left for the park in the afternoon, he had three hits (two singles and a home run) and only one unforced error, although it did cost him a uniform change. But all in all, he seemed pretty excited to be wearing his Thomas underwear instead of a diaper. Fingers crossed, we may finally be on the road to potty training.
But the real test will be today. Because for the first time, Porter went out into the world without a diaper. I felt a certain amount of trepidation as he stepped onto the school bus. But this is the only way he’ll learn so here goes.
UDPATE: I got a note back from his teacher today: One hit (a single) and no errors. Woo hoo! Good job, Porter!
