What's the first news of the new year????
Jack . . . does his business in the toilet! Yes!
I decided he could do it and it was worth another attempt. We began the Monday after Christmas. I read a book from a friend in my ward about the 3-day method. It was pretty much what I had tried with him before, but instead of a timer every 15 minutes or so, you just try to give them extra things to drink and watch them like a hawk. Every time he started to squirm, we ran to the bathroom. We had a few accidents over the course of the 3 days, but he seemed to be getting it! On day 3 he got to go play outside finally. On day 4 we actually left the house and went to my mom's for a couple of hours and he did great there. On day 5, we tested the waters with public toilets by first going to meet Miss Bethany for lunch at Chick-fil-A and then going to a Utes game. He did have one accident that day, but I blame myself for letting my guard down. At the ballgame, I felt like we went about 800 times and tried out every ladies bathroom in the Huntsman Center, but it worked and he kept doing great.
Sunday and church? Check
Monday? I was a little worried. We were heading back to school. This kid is a pooper and goes at least twice a day or more and has his entire life. He was off his game during the first week of toilet training and got a little backed up. To get him to go in the toilet took much patience, much time, a Kindle, and some Netflix. What was he going to at school, though? I was a little worried. I had nothing to worry about, though. He was accident free and on Tuesday, Miss Sarah gave him an ultimatum that he couldn't go out and play until he went #2 and he did it!
He only had one "accident" all week at school and it wasn't an accident, but rather a "missed and peed all over my pants" thing. I think that is pretty great for his first week at school!
I'm so proud of him! He is such a good boy!
