jeremiah POTTIED today!!!!!!!!!! SEVERAL times in a row!!!!!!!!!!
we were reading a potty book, when it was over, i asked if he wanted to potty (usually he says an emphatic NO) and he said YEAH!!!!
so we went to the potty, he played a bit, then said he was done. i asked him if he felt any pee-pee in his pen$$ and he said yes, so he sat longer. i told him not to hold his pen$$ so the pee-pee could come out. (this is another thread all together – my boys are BOTH pen$$ pinchers!!!) he said ok, left it alone, and i saw his tummy muscles squeezing. i told him to push the pee-pee out.
he went! he was SOOOOOOO excited!
we did the rinse and dump and flush and wash hands, and i asked if he wanted a pull-up. he said yes (he has NOT wanted a pull-up before now – i would have asked if he wanted undies, but it was right before nap time) and i had him sit on the potty while i went to get the pull-ups from downstairs. he went MORE while sitting!
so more praise, repeat the wash, rinse, etc, and it happened 4 more times. now i KNOW he wants those skittles, so i am going to have him sit on the potty for five minutes before i let him up. i want him to get a stream going, not a little trickle like he was. but the point is, he KNOWS when he needs to “go”. i am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited about this!!!!!!!!!!!
now, how to get him down for nap, when he says he needs to potty, because he wants skittles, AND likes to avoid napping in the first place. ?
how to keep the one year old who is totally interested in everything big bubby does away from the potty??
