Mr. Hanky

Just for all you South Park fans. *wink*

We are potty training William. Its been going on for about 5 weeks now. We are using the extra thick undies and I'm doing laundry DAILY. ugh Unlike the other two he will not poop in the potty. So like clockwork about 3 pm while I am stuck in the chair nursing Alexander William will poop in his underwear. So I have to put Alexander down and listen to him scream while I change William's underwear, talk about how poop goes in the potty, clean him up, find new underwear, yada, yada, yada. Same thing everyday. Oh, except for the day that he took his diaper off and pooped on the rug. (The rug is now outside waiting to be thoroughly cleaned)

Well, tonight he said "Tummy hurts" and he still hadn't pooped. So I whisked him onto the potty and I sat on the floor and I waited. I told him to try and then I grunted. So he laughed and grunted too. So then I said, no, try with your bottom. And low and behold we had poopy in the potty.

We celebrated. There was clapping and cheering. Both of the older kids came to see and then congratulated him. Then we had M&Ms. The whole time reinforcing that pooping in the potty equals candy.

Well, now he is tooling around his room an hour past bedtime. He won't sleep. Perhaps we need to do candy earlier in the day.
