Well, we decided that this long holiday weekend was the perfect time to work on potty training Lovebug.
When we woke up this morning I put on his new big-boy underwear. At first he said I want my big boy underwear. I think what he meant is plain white underwear not ones with characters on it, LOL.
So, we put on his big boy underwear and I had him sit on the potty. We talked about how we're going to sit on the potty every time the timer goes off on my phone and how when he does go pee-pee in the potty that he'll get a Buzz Lightyear sticker. He sat there for about a minute and said he was all done. We did this a couple of times this morning. I believe it was after the 2nd time that about 10 minutes later he went in his underwear, the good thing is that he told me right afterward that he had gone so we got him changed right away.
As of right now (11:30 am), he has gone twice in his underwear and none on the potty. But at least now he's more willing to sit on the potty every 30 minutes and he sits there for about 5 minutes "trying".
Ok, so I didn't do as well as I thought I would updating this as the weekend went on. It's now Wednesday, December 2nd and I started this on Thanksgiving, LOL. At any rate, over the weekend Lovebug went back & forth. Thursday & Friday went fairly well, Saturday he wanted a diaper. On Sunday we had no diapers so I gave him a choice of either a pull-up or big boy underwear. He wanted the underwear and did great in it all day long.
Monday was back to school (daycare), he wore a pull up. And he went all day DRY!! He peed and pooped on the potty all day long. I was so excited for him. So, now he's been in big boy underwear all week and doing great. Today he went poop on the potty again. He told my dad that myself and momo (my mom) don't know how to poop in the potty because we're girls and only boys poop in the potty. ROFL He says the darndest things.
