I despise potty training. I started potty training the twins promptly when they turned two - because according to everyone, that's when I was supposed to. It lasted one hour before we had gone through all of the training pants and I had cleaned up so many messes from two children that I was done. I decided that they could potty train themselves when they felt grossed out enough by diapers.
The world's not kind to newly three year olds who are still in diapers - they think something is wrong with kids and their parents ability to parent. My kids were able to grasp Jesus dying on a cross and living in their hearts - but going poop in the potty was beyond their comprehension. I didn't really care that they were still in diapers; that is until I had Will.
I would line up all four kids in order: Luke, Emma, Lily and Will. Then I would proceed to change all their diapers in an assembly line fashion. I could no longer change Luke's big three year old bottom and then change Will's tiny little behind. It was just not working for me anymore. So we bought them bribe toys that sat beyond their reach and low and behold, they trained themselves shortly after turning three.
I suppose I was
You just hold on to your story of potty training at six months - you have a genius.
(Yes, that is Lily wearing a pull-up OVER a diaper. Nice.)
