Potty Training-Day 2

So, after a fabulous day yesterday with the potty training, I braced myself for another day. We started out the day well, his diaper from overnight was dry and he went lots of pee pee in the potty. He then went again, about and hour and a half later. However, about 10:15 this morning, I was on the phone with my hubby when Zachary walked into the family room with his legs spread apart, soaked. So, we cleaned that up (there was also a puddle in the basement) and went to the grocery store. We actually made it through the grocery store with no incident. We came home and I immediately had him go potty, which he did, and I set about to make lunch. Not more than 10 minutes after he had gone potty, Zachary says,
"I went pee pee! And poop too!"
So, in the middle of lunch preparations, I had to deal with poopy underwear. And you know that the poop always smears down the legs as you take off poopy underwear, so we got cleaned up and tried again. So far, we have gone potty one more time and been dry.

The problem that I am finding is that Zachary is calling his underwear pull ups. Ugh! Those pull ups are the most wretched things. They have helped with the ease of having him go on the potty, but they have also let him think that it's okay to go in his pants as well. That's the mentality that I now have to break. I should have realized that yesterday was too good to be true. Well, I am determined to not go back. We will see you all in underwear!
