We have been trying (half hearted or less) to potty train Daniel. Every morning before school about 20 minutes after he wakes up, I've been putting him on his potty seat. Then again at school the teacher puts him on at around 10:30. Sometimes he'll go pee-pee at school. Well EVERY morning when I put him on the potty he pees, and I make a big production out of it. I sing a special song that the whole family knows (and will sing to him!) and he gets to pick out a sticker. This is fun for him.
Well this morning I put him on the potty and he tinkled so I started to pick him up to get him dressed and he started to really fuss. Well just because he is non verbal doesn't mean he can't get his point across! So I promptly figured out he wanted to sit back on the potty, so I put him back and figured he still had to pee.....which he did, but he also went #2. Now, I don't generally celebrate when someone goes to the bathroom but the fact that he made a point to let me know he wasn't finished, and he went poopy on the potty.......THIS IS A HUGE DEAL!!!
He's gone pooh on the potty before but always because I could tell he had to go and I put him there. He let me know.....in so many words!
So he got TWO stickers. Yes two because I was so proud of him, and I kept telling him so all day long. He probably was thinking, "Sheesh, I just sat on the potty. Are we going to throw a party every time for Pete's sake!!"
I know you guys are probably shaking your heads and saying....."geez o'peas, this girl needs a life!"
Well I will further embarrass myself and tell you I don't have much excitement in my life because I actually got a little teary eyed afterwards!!! LOL
