"The smarts tell me the poo poo is coming.""I can't poo poo right now but I can smart."After pooing (thanks to Chris' excitement the time before), "Mom, I go poo poo! Look, it's giant. It's brown. It's a bird."Later I asked Chris, "You taught our son the word 'turd'?"
Only this time, we're having some success! Jonathan is FINALLY catching on. He's been wearing big boy 'panties' all week (He insists they're panties). Still in a diaper at naptime and bedtime, but it's progress.
Tonight he placed the last sticker on this chart. He seems to have it down if he's at home, in the house. Of course, outside he often forgets to take the break from playing, and we have yet to get him to use a potty away from home. Using the potty at a store presents a whole new set of issues. At home we're using the potty seat insert that sits on top of the regular potty seat and has a guard, eliminating the fear of falling in and the need to 'aim'. I haven't quite figured out how to tackle going to the potty in a store. He's too short to pee standing up, but I'm not sure how he'll balance and aim all while sitting on a 'big potty'. Any suggestions?
The tooth was Chris' addition. Jonathan was sooo excited when Chris finished it. He said, "I told you! Smiley pumpkin! I told you!" It was so cute to see him so excited. The funny part is, if you tried to carve a Jack-o-lantern that embodied Jonathan's personality, it would look something like that smiley pumpkin :)
