Dominic went pee-pee in the potty! Yippee!! After 20 something trips to the potty (we count these trips by the number of Pooh stickers in Dominic's coloring book) we have our second success. It feels good to be productive... :) It's hard not to be hoodwinked by his pleas for "potty", even when he's just gone. Sometimes he does have to go, and I just can't know when that is. So, he gets to go potty as many times as my patience holds out. Is saving $300 a year worth all that time waiting in the bathroom for something to happen? Since part of our job as parents involves transforming a diaper-wearing, mommy-dependent little boy into a real man who can hold his own (pun fully intended), I may as well bite the bullet now and reap the rewards sooner--at least that's what I keep telling myself. Wouldn't you go pee-pee if you had a cushie-tushie seat and got stickers if you just tried and received candy or 1/2 a cookies if you succeeded...bribery is alive and well.
