Chronicles of Potty Training: Day 3
OK. So the day started off as usual. Jon Kent peed in the potty this morning. I had some errands to run so I put him in a pull-up and told him that they were still big boy underwear and he wasn't to pee or poop in them. So we are out and about in town for a little over an hour or so. I kept asking if he had to go potty and he kept telling me no. While in town I picked up a Thomas the Tank Engine learning toy (laptop type thing) and told him that he could have it when he pooped in the potty. He was pretty excited about it. So we get home and I put the toy on the bathroom window seal where he could see it but couldn't reach it. I sat him down on the potty and noticed his pull-up was still dry. So I figured he would have to pee by now. So we wait and wait. But no pee-pee. So he goes down for a nap. After he wakes up, I noticed he was still dry. So I went and sat him on the potty. And he immediately peed. Yay! He went the rest of the afternoon and evening not peeing or pooping. So we go to church. I tell his teachers that we are potty training and to offer to take him to the potty. So they did. But he never went and when we got home he was still dry. I knew the boy had to at least have to pee. By this time it had been about 5 hours. So we went to the potty but he never did anything. He would get up, run around for a bit and then say he had to potty. After doing this a couple of times, he told me he wanted to "frow up". So I knew his tummy must be hurting him. Plus, he had broken out in a cold sweat on his forehead. He finally got up again without going and played a little bit, but he kept telling Kent his stomach hurt. So Kent took him back into the bathroom and sat him down and tried to talk him through it. When the poop finally started coming out Kent said Jon Kent looked scared (LOL) and tried to stand up. But Kent sat him back down and finally he pooped! YAY!!!!! He was so proud of himself. AND he got his Thomas toy!!!! I'm hoping now that he has gotten his first poop out of the way, he won't be so scared to poop in the potty. Anyway, of course we had to call the grandparents and tell them. Everybody was pretty proud. So let's recap.. Jon Kent-0, Potty-4. Woot-woot!!! No accidents today!!!!
