Guerilla Potty Training

Potty training Gabriel started in March or April of 2008, and he's been in regular big kid underpants with no trouble whatsoever since I wanna say May of that year. He was still having accidents at nap time occasionally up until maybe a year ago, but we seem to have gotten well past that hurdle as well.
(By the way I don't have any good advice by way of how to potty train a kid aside from you just need to do it and not be afraid of accidents etc. Also it helps to have a daycare provider who's on board)
Anyhow, all that said, he's been in pull ups at night this entire time, because he still has a wet pull up in the morning at least 1/2 the time, if not more, and I just can't care about the night time potty training thing. I have graduated him from his cloth diapers to pull ups, cuz if he HAPPENS to want to pee in the middle of the night, I don't want to deal with diaper pins and covers and such. But whatever. He's not going to wet the bed when he's 18, he'll get there when he gets there, etc etc etc.

Except that then I ran out of pull ups. And it was already night and I didn't bother going to the store because FUCK MAN I DON'T WANNA.
Thought briefly about digging out some cloth diaper supplies, but Gabriel wasn't very interested in that option, since diapers are baby stuff and all.


I'm night training Gabriel. I'm extra motivated because he spends at least half more like most of his time in my bed and I do NOT like waking up because I'm tangled up in a pee-soaked sheet.

So far it's going well.

This looks to save me some money going forward.
