Mason is now on his third try at potty training. We started last week and he has progressively gotten better every day. Sunday was the BIG test. I took the kids to church and took Mase to the potty before nursery. I told the teachers that he was potty training and to please ask him if he needed to go. Jer's dad stopped in and checked on him and I took him again after I taught my beehives class. To my surprise he was accident free all Sunday! Yay! That made it 3 days in a row that Mason peed in the potty, without accidents! The dilemma then was that he was not going number two in the potty at all. I didn't know how to get him to want to do it either.
Last night I took him to the big adult potty and showed him his new stool that daddy painted just for him and I had him sit down and I told him that poo poo goes in the potty not his underpants. Mason repeated back to me where pee and poo go. I knew he understood the concept. As I went to sit down in the living room Mason came running up to me and he announced (with his excited fists up by his face) that he made a poo poo in the potty all by himself! Sure enough, he did! We were all so excited! Who would have thought a bodily function could cause so much joy? Mason called up aunt Jillian to tell her the good news so someone outside of the family could tell him he did a good job. He feels so grown up now. After that Mason helped me put away his little potty because he wants to use the Daddy potty now. I am so glad he finally got it! It has been quite a ride with this boy potty training but oh boy am I happy its looking like its over now. whew!
