Mummy, i need go wee wees!

Well, i thought this was going to take forever but we seem to be full steam ahead with the toilet training and Xander is spearheading it himself!
On Friday i made a decision to use undies (with his permission of course!) and he did really well. Every time i put on the toilet - about every 30 minutes he went and he had a few accidents between times. I had to change him twice before play group at 9.30am and then twice at play group. We had a busy afternoon so he was in nappies and that seemed to be the end of it.
Well on Monday i picked him up from Kindy only to be told he was in undies! Apparently Gabi had taken him to the toilet and he'd said he wanted to wear undies. He proudly showed me bob the builder and all day - yes ALL DAY! - Xander stayed dry and used the potty when he needed to go. So except for when he had his sleep, he was in undies all day.
This morning he protested a bit but after a bit of encouragement he went to kindy with his own undies on and no accidents before we left. I had an accident at kindy - but i was expecting that! - so had a change of outfits when i picked him up. He was bare foot as he had wet his socks and shoes but that is all good.
So this afternoon when we go out the potty will be coming too.
Well done Xander! He really is becoming a big boy!!

On another note, you may know he hasn't been very good with dinner the last month or so. It has gotten so bad he stopped cutting out his day sleep and has been sleeping 2-3 hours during the day (not normal for a toddler his age!) and has huge dark rings under his eyes. Off to the doctor and he now has iron syrup in the morning with his weetbix and a vitamin tablet before going to bed. Hopefully this will help give him what he needs until he decides to eat his meat and veges!
