The Potty Training Diaries

I'm not going to lie, I have been dreading it. It being a little thing called potty training. Castle is 2.3 years old and it seemed like a good time to start. He's talking, responding, knows what the potty is, sits in it occasionally... he's ready, right?

WRONG!

Why is there a bucket of LEGO sitting in disinfecting solution? Because he peed in it. And why is the pile of laundry reaching the ceiling? Because he went through every single pair of pants, shorts, jammy pants, swim shorts, and other weird fitting/looking bottom we could find.

We did the no diaper intense juice drinking camp out by the bathroom method. It started off okay but then slowly it got worst. Some methods call for putting your child on the potty every 15 minutes regardless if they need to go or not, well we didn't even make it to 15 minutes because he was having accidents every 5 minutes. He did do a few pee pees in the potty but he did not enjoy the experience. Eventually after 1.5 days he was so frustrated and cried whenever he needed to go, which was quite frequent. We noticed that physically he couldn't hold it in, and that's when we pulled the plug on the whole operation. He's not ready yet, maybe in a few months, or a year.
P.s. Any helpful tips on this subject matter welcomed!
