PT'ing break through

As some of you know we have been working on potty training Shane. Well about month or so ago he just decided he didn't want anything else to do with it. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why. Well I was talking to a friend of mine and she suggested I try getting him to sit on the potty and try. He didn't have to potty, he just needed to try. Well I tried that and he had a complete meltdown. He acted like I was punishing him or something. So I got to thinking. He might be thinking that if Megan can wear diapers then why can't he. Makes sense huh? Well it did to me anyway. So later that day I was getting ready to put Megan down for a nap and decided I was going to sit her on the potty. I took her diaper off and sat her down. Wouldn't you know it, Shane decided he wanted to do the same thing. So after a couple of days trying, Shane pulled his diaper off and sat on the potty all by himself today. He sits there stands up and says Shane went pee pee. I get all excited run over and say "Show Mommy". He pulls the white bucket out of the potty and shows me. Sure enough he went pee pee. I got so excited. I couldn't believe it. Looks like we are back on the track to getting not one but both kids potty trained. It sure will be nice not having to buy diapers for 2 kids. I just hope he keeps it up.

Until next time.
