We are trying hard to have Hunter diaper free as soon as possible, but oh it is a frustrating endeavor. Today I saw some real progress with five pees in the potty.
I let him run around mostly naked all day and ask him every few minutes if he has to pee/poo. It works! For the most part he yells at me, "NO PEE MOM!". But those five successful times, when I asked he booked it over to the potty, asked for me to read a story, and ta-da here comes the pee. He always says to me when he is done, "Look Mom, I peed in the potty for you!" Awww, what a good kid. We are giving him a Smartie for each successful use of the potty.
But then there is the Poo-Snake... Last month Hunter took a HUGE crap on his potty. He stood up, looked in, and loudly proclaimed, "Look Mom, a snake!" I then called it a Poo-Snake and the name has stuck. Ever since Hunter has said he is afraid to poo on the potty because of the Poo-Snake!! He was even afraid to go to the bathroom with me in SuperStore because he said there was a Poo-Snake in there. What a crazy kid!
We will keep at it and hopefully in a couple of months we will be done with diapers for him. I will definitely remember his encounter with the Poo-Snake so I can embarrass him with it when he grows up.
