I'm so happy to hear from you!! I know how hard/busy/rewarding/crazy life can be with two - especially when they're so close together. Potty training is 'fun'...lol It really depends on the kid. With my oldest it was a nightmare, with my daughter it was a breeze - she basically trained herself! Good luck! But don't worry if he's not into it right away. Boys 'usually' take longer. He'll get there in his own time. Jared was 3yrs 3months old before he trained, but then he did it himself in a weekend!
Anyway, I'm glad you're doing well! Stay in touch when you can but know that I always understand how busy life can get!!
