I lost my 'Micah'...


along with my temper. This boy needs constant motivation or he just doesn't care. As soon as the novelty of treats wore off and he had earned a dinosaur for pooping in the potty all my himself with no promptings, he started having accidents. I don't know if it is because he is testing me to see if I am really serious about all this potty stuff or what. I still have a snake he can earn and I have threatened to throw it away if he doesn't 'practice' and that works for now. Luckily my mom said if he keeps his pants dry then she will take him out to get an ice-cream. he is excited about that....for now anyway. It has been a bumpy road and it seems we have backtracked, there have been tears on both our parts and I am expecting to change bed sheets either late tonight or in the morning. He will get this eventually right? He has to.

Good luck! I hope today will be better. And yes, he will get it. He really will. It may not be until he decides to, but he will.

And if it helps, know that we're all cheering for you over here.

You will make it I promise.. to be honest Doug started the potty training by making Martin go potty every morning because Martin wake up with a dry diaper and than at night he would go potty and it took over a month but he SLOWLY got the idea and it was all thanks to Doug. Martin said he wanted his Dad to teach him because he had boy parts.

I still remind Martin to go potty and he hasn't had an accident in two months.
Good Luck and just love him because I have to admit I had my moments of wanting to scream and instead I would hug him and tell him I loved him while I cleaned up the mess.
