We’ve been trying to encourage DS to potty train the last month. Nothing too intense, just a suggestion here and there. He never seemed to like the little “personal” potty we bought him earlier this year, so DH and I got him one of those padded seats that fits over the regular toilet seat. He’s asked a couple of times to “use” his new potty, but it was only because it was something new, not because he had any intention of actually using it.
Tonight, however, he asked if he could go “pee pee on the potty.” So I helped him with his stool and seat, and he sat down looking pleased as punch. Next thing I knew, he was actually going! Hoooooraaaaaay! I was so surprised you could have knocked me over with a feather.
After he cleaned up I gave him a Thomas sticker for his potty chart, and two M&M candies. Yes, I’m totally into bribery if it means he starts using the potty. lol….
