Jim gave you some good tips. I have gone through potty training 4 times and I can tell you from experience that girls are sooooo much easier than boys. He also was right when he told you that it is not unusual for boys to be way behind the times when it comes to being potty trained. Our pediatrician told me that it is far more common to see boys still not fully potty trained until 4........sigh
Anyway, the best thing that we ever did was not invest in pull ups. Those things are the worst things for boys when it comes to potty training. They feel too much like diapers so boys don't feel the need to rush to the bathroom so stay away from them.
I bought big boy underwear that they picked out. We set a day that we had nothing else going on, no need to rush out somewhere and that was the day. After each drink or meal they went to the potty after about
half an hour. Thankfully I was real familiar with their body habits so that helps to have some idea of when they usually went.......and we had success. In fact, we only had one accident during training- and that was due to an ear infection.
I never had to buy night time pull ups or even throw out a pair of underwear because of an accident and I was really proud of both of my sons.....

Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
