Last week Robbie started potty training. It has become quite the family event. We are all spending a lot of time in the bathroom. Everytime he sits on the potty, he, Kaylynn and Elayna all get to put a sticker on their charts. When he goes pee pee, they all get a gummy bear. When he goes poop, they all get a chocolate. By the end of the first day I was wondering why, why, why??? The 2nd day he had only 2 accidents. By the end of the week he was getting tired of it and refusing to go. Saturday he had a lot of accidents. Yesterday he pooped on the potty on his own. Today he has gone on his own a number of times. I am pretty excited. When he goes a whole day without an accident (we put him in a diaper for church) he'll get a fun little prize. Big boy undies and some super incentives and Robbies on his way to developing a fundamentally important life skill.
A friend of mine told me about this. The kids had so much fun. You just put some shaving cream on the table and let them play with it. We drew shapes, numbers, our names. I would use less cream next time. It really foams up. They smelled really nice, too.
