As you guys know, we’ve been working on potty training Mikey. Currently, we are using a potty chart and each time Mikey uses the potty, he puts a sticker on it. He gets rewards based on the number of times, although recently, every time he goes, he gets a little mini bag of M&Ms. A night or two ago, Mikey was about to go to bed and told us he had to go pee-pee. I took him into the bathroom and he went pee-pee. Afterwards, we went into Mommy’s office and he got a sticker and put it on his potty chart. He then asks Amanda & I “What do I get”? Mommy told him that he got a sticker for his potty chart. Mikey looks at her and said “What do I get to put in my mouth?”
I posted about Mikey’s big accomplishment yesterday. Today, I’ve decided to allow Mikey to tell the World about what happened to him yesterday.
Every night for a while now, I would put Mikey on the potty upstairs. He will sit there and keep telling us “almost done”, but would never go pee-pee in the potty. Finally, either he would tell me he was done, or I would get tired of waiting 10 or 15 minutes. So, he would get off the potty, take off his potty seat, flush the toilet, set the lid down, and then wash his hands. Then, into the tub he would go. He would stand there and pee. I would get so upset with him, although I would try not to let him know or see me upset. Why would he not just go pee-pee in the potty? A few nights ago, I told him that I’d give him a penny if he went pee-pee in the potty. Every night when we’d go in the bathroom, he’d see that penny and I would remind him that if he went pee-pee in the potty, I’d give him that money. Well tonight, he earned the penny! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen; Mr. Mikey Cox, has entered the world of big-boys who use the potty! I know that this is only the start, but I am very happy and excited.
