Today is a momentous day. On this day, August 2nd, 2008, my son went NUMBER TWO IN THE POTTY!!!
He was glowing with pride, shouting "MAMA, LOOK,I DID IT!!"
It has taken a solid week to get him to overcome his fear and his thoughts of "I can't"...Do you want to know what finally helped him conquer his fear? Cheerios.
I threw a handful of cheerios into the pot and told him to try and hit them (standing up of course), and when I saw he was grunting, I told him to take a seat and try and do the DEED on the cheerios. He thought it was a game, and IT ACTUALLY WORKED!
If only there was nanny cam that could've captured the moment. Once he told me he did it, happy tears came to my eyes, I gave him the biggest hug imaginable, and went racing around my apartment shouting yippee, and yahoooo all the while whipping my arms above my head.
I know he'll still have accidents, but I'm still so very proud of him.
Today has been a GREAT day!
