P.T. post #4

More adventures in potty training!


video
In this movie, Lee and I were playing outside and he was picking me violets from our yard. At the end, he suddenly said in a flower's voice, "I need to go potty too.... psssht.... thank you!"

As you can tell, potty training Lee has been a big part of our lives this past week. It's finally taking a good turn, though there is a long way to go. He has only been wearing diapers at night, the rest of the time is briefs. We usually have one undies change daily, but that's all. Better than 3 or 4 diaper changes!

Lee hasn't been too interested in treats. Lots of praise, and making it into a game is his favorite way to go. He takes a toy with him into the bathroom and helps it go potty first, by helping bear or duck or whoever onto the stool, opens the lid, and holds them over the toilet for a little while. Then it's Lee's turn. This game is working wonders!

Way to go Lee. I'm so proud of him.

That sounds like a better way to potty-train than a treat chart anyway! What a cool kid to pick up on that. :)
