So, Jonny ended up getting a high fever Saturday and had it until Tuesday. He is doing better now except for a bad cough. Jesse hasn't been feeling well and Roo has a snotty nose. Jonny ended up missing school on Monday and the other boys could tell I wasn't feeling well. They ended up being SO bad! Needlesss to say it was a VERY bad day for Momma. Tuesday morning started out rough but the day ended up being okay.

Another struggle since Phil left has been Reuben and potty training. He has been up several times almost every night. I have taken away his favorite blanket, his Pooh bear, I am making him wear potty training pants and plastic pants again, and he STILL pees the bed ALL night. Now, it's not a matter of him sleeping too hard. He wakes up and cries but refuses to get out of his bed and go to the bathroom. I have even tried spanking him.

I am running out of ideas. I can tell you one thing......NONE of my other boys were this hard to train!!! They were all FULLY trained by three! He isn't that much older than three so I'm not too concerned about it. My Mom said that when my Dad went to basic Josh quit potty training....but he was only 18 months old. Reuben knows better! So if any of you have any off the wall ideas and have prior experience with potty training boys!!! I'm ALL ears!!!

No ideas, I never trained a boy. My turn is coming though. LOL But with Harley it's laziness sometimes. Spanking is what we do and it seems to help. Sorry about the sickness going. I am praying for you!

Wish I had potty training ideas for you, Jenn. I didn't have that trouble so didn't have to research it too much.
Hope it settles down soon for you.
