    I am also a Military wife and just finished up last semester of pre-reqs in school while my husband was gone in Iraq. I know how hard it can be. My son is also 2 and is not potty trained yet. It will happen when they are ready.

    My little one is really good at pulling down his shorts, taking off his diaper and sitting on the potty but never actually does anything. I am sure it will happen soon though. Hang in there Sheri

    not even $50 if you don't have carpets or have your own steamer.

    and yes it works to leave the diaper off. potty training in summer is sooo easy.
