Diaper struggles continue but we have had a breakthrough, I think. Last night I took Zen Mama’s suggestion and told Jack that he had to wear his diaper or sit on the potty. That started an hour long struggle to get him to either put on a diaper or sit on the potty…STUBBORN child! Finally I told him that if he peed on the potty we would clap and have a party. His face lit up and he sat right down. Since then he hasn’t wanted to get off of the potty and he won’t stop talking about it! I started to get a little worried when he sat on the potty after 20 minutes trying to get more urine out…I didn’t know how to explain that he was done for the time being.
I was able to get him into a diaper for bed but he took it off this morning and peed in the bed. At least he knows the diaper comes off when he needs to use the facilities…now if I can just catch him before he pees in the bed and sit him on the toilet.
I feel like we are on potty training hyper speed! He doesn’t want anything to do with diapers anymore. I am not sure what to do because he won’t wear his training pants, either. And what the heck do I do at night? Time to get out the potty training book, I guess!
By the way, our party consisted of a blue lollipop and some brownies. Oh, and lots of clapping and “I’m proud of you” and “You’re such a big boy!” I should get him some balloons probably…
