Cutting It Close

Last year on Dylan's birthday, I posted a list of goals that I had for him. One of those goals was for him to start doing this:

Finally, last night he went #2 in the potty! (You can tell you're a parent of small children when most of your conversations involve your children's bowel movements.) He has been going #1 pretty well for a few weeks, but last night he finally took the big step. Woo hoo! I gave him a handful of Skittles instead of just the three he gets when he goes pee in the potty. I also gave him a play phone that we got a month ago as a bribery to get him to start going. He was pretty proud of himself. I'm glad that he's coming around.

Of course today I've had to change two poopy Pull-Ups and he stuck his phone in the sink and it stopped working until it dried out. But hey, he's taken one step in the right direction. There is hope that he will be potty trained before high school.

HA HA HA! One step forward, two steps back...
He and Tess can be the kids who wear diapers to school together. What a gross couple!

I guess it's a good thing that we live close to the elementary school so the teacher can easily come find you to change your kid's diaper, kind of like they do at church.
