I'm a Big Boy, Look What I Can Do!

I'm a Big Boy, Look What I Can Do!

I know that Amanda already posted this, but I really wanted to also.

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.

  1. I posted a comment on Amanda’s blog, but just thought of something else. Some boys really respond to “targets” in the toilet. You can buy flushable paper ones, or Cheerios work well, too.
