Diaries of a potty training mom

Well, this about sums it up. We have been actively trying to get Daniel to use the potty for the third full day now. It's not going as smoothly as I had hoped. In good Daniel fashion, he will be a little late doing this as well I suppose. I was so proud of myself for not even attempting this until he was 3 because I wanted him to be ready! 
Well, apparently him having a birthday didn't do much to change his readiness. 

So far: 
I am taking him to the potty every 15-20 minutes
Spending 5-8 minutes on the toilet waiting (and singing) 
Funny story: Last night every time I started singing "To the King" he would let out a good amount of urine. Then stop. I would start to sing again and he would let more go. Perhaps my singing has a relaxing effect)
giving him lots of juice
diapering him for nap and sleep 
allowing him to go nude underneath pajama pants. 

He is: 
peeing in between potty visits 
(He has slightly changed the color of the water one time, which means all of his other bowel movements have been in his pants)


Maybe he needs more time. Or maybe I haven't given it long enough.
