We bought this really nifty basketball-toilet-seat for McKay for one of his birthday gifts.
(I don't do those mini-toilets. I don't want to deal with cleaning them out. I'd rather change a diaper. Yuck!)
We talked up going to the bathroom on the toilet and wearing "Cars" and "Thomas the Train" underwear.
He gets a piece of candy every time he goes to the bathroom in the toilet.
What more could a three year old boy want? Of course he's potty-trained now! Hallelujah!
So now we've moved on to phase 2: going #2 in the toilet. This is a whole new ballgame. I have bribed him with everything--gummy worms, tootsie pops, riding the go-carts, going to Chuck E. Cheese. Nothing is working.
(In his prayers, he says: "Help me poop in the toilet so I can ride the cars today"....and that's about all his prayers consist of. Something's not working for him)
That "drop" is scary, let me tell you. Taylor had the same problem.
Here's my new plan. I always miss McKay doing his business. He goes in another room to do it or he does it in the early morning or at nap time. So it is so hard to catch him in the act. I think that if I can catch him in the act, I could help him get to the toilet in time. This could work...
Any other ideas?
