You're Invited...

Everyone likes to Potty, right? Well it is Pottytime at our house. Thats right, this weekend was the start of Potty Bootcamp. On Friday after two disgusting adult-like-huge- poops-mashed-all-over-leg diapers, I had had enough. We had been talking about it for a few months already, but never followed through. This time we are. We are doing it in a nice way, just cold turkey. Saturday morning Mason woke up, I asked him if he wanted to pee on the potty, he did, he got 3 Skittles and we put big boy undies on.

The rest of the day he peed on the potty. We were expecting a few accidents but We've only had two, one Saturday night and one Sunday morning. Maybe it is the ultra-cool skull and crossbone undies, who knows but we are on a roll.

To give credit where credit is due, Mason has not minded going pee for months now. It has been the poop factor. Apparently it is very scary. So we did the noble thing and bribed him. We told him, the minute he'd go poop we'd get into the car and go to the store where he could pick out ANYTHING he wanted.

Saturday no poop. This is so not normal for Mason. Sunday throughout the day he asked for a diaper obviously when he had the urge to poop. This was when we started to wonder if what we were doing was cruel and unusual punishment. We kept reminding him that as soon as he would go, we'd go to the store. Much of the day for Mike and I was spent sitting on the tub reading books as our little potty warrior sat on the potty holding in his overdue poop with all his might. So, we up'ed the anty. We decided we were going to buy a cake too and have a "Poop Party". Finally at 7:30 last night, without warning or any assistance from us, Mason came out of the bathroom clapping saying he "did it, yay!" Off to the store we went and came home with this and cake too.

Of all the thing he could have had, John Deere got his vote. We had a potty party complete with singing, "happy poop day to you..." (to the tune of Happy Birthday of course).

So now we are at day 3, still only the 2 pee accidents and still only the one poop. He has been asking for a diaper all day but at this point, I feel like that would only give mixed messages. I just hope he is not going to give himself a horrible tummy ache!

Alright Mason! Jeez, what is it with the "scared to go poop" thing? My almost 3yo DD is terrified of pooping on the potty (& I'm terrified of her pooping all over the carpet)Total power struggle I'll tell ya.

Christy J said...

Oh, and where did you get those underwear? They are too cute!!

AnnieM said...

Are you ready Christy...Wal-mart. The place of all things evil! But they were too cute to pass up.

Rachel said...

Good luck with the potty training!!! Sounds like it's going great.

Christy J said...

Oh God. Wal-mart? Holy hell! I will have to go check it out. I am in the underwear purging mode. Oh... just a tip I learned, BUY THEM BIG!!! I buy 4's for Hayden, so he can get them up and down himself!! I'm throwing all the 2/3's away.

YAY for Mason and poop!!

Ms. Mamma said...

Those are my kind of skivvies! They make me want to wear underwear, okay, nah.

BlueGoddess said...

Congratulations!! I hope it continues to go so well. We might try the party idea.

We are also going through potty training. Pretty seriously I might add. But my kid doesn't care if he poops or pees on anything except the potty. And all he wants to do is take off his diaper or underwear. Any suggestions???

We bought the training pants that are plastic on the outside and cloth on the inside. He at least notices that he needs to use the potty then. But it is really messy of course. One poopy one that I hated cleaning up. But what is a mom to do??

Awe, good boy Mason. Sorry, that's all I have for you b/c me and your mom need to talk....

What the hell is up witht he poop!? Why is it such a horrible thing? Why is it totally okay to pee in the potty but is unspeakable to poop in the potty? Why!? I don't get it. Silly Girl is the same way and has done the same thing. Holding her poops and not going for days at a time etc. etc. etc. She did everything you just wrote about Mason and I don't get it and I don't know how to get her out of the f-ing diapers b/c I don't want her to explode from holding her poops for f-ing weeks at at a time. Can you tell how pissed I am about this and how over it I am? I guess I just need to do bootcamp too, huh?
Let us know how it continues to go. I need to know.

Back to you Mason, you are fabulous! Please call Silly Girl and tell her how fun it is to poop in the potty and yall can talk though your denial.
