Kinder eggs to the rescue! I bought a dozen or so, and put them in a big glass container on our kitchen counter. Ethan understood right away that if he "pooped" on the potty he'd get an egg. He asked once or twice for one, and I repeated the deal. He ignored them for at least a month, maybe more. Then it just happened- once or twice- then nothing for weeks. When Grandma was about to visit, Ethan announced that he was going to poop on the potty and " Grandma be so proud of me!" He kept his word, and got a real taste for the kinder eggs. It wasn't so much about the chocolate as it was the toys ( those teeny-tiny-I'm afraid your brother's going to swallow one and die- and the-if I step on another one they are going in the garbage- type toys).
Silly me, thinking it would take forever for him to get through them all, told him he could pick a toy at the toy store when they were all gone. He talked about the " man an the Hecicopter an the panda" for about a week until Mark had to take him to Chapters to get his reward (an animal rescue helicopter).
Now that he's got the helicopter, and the kinder eggs are all gone, he's off and on about whether he wants to stay clean. I told him he could only play on the computer on the days he went on the potty, and this was his (repeated) reply "MAMA! THE 'PUTER AND POTTY NOT MIX!" Smart kid- dumb mama!
Now if you actually read any of that, the layout I'm about to post actually makes a bit of sense lol!
I used this week's sketch by fellow DT member Sasya over at Practical Scrappers. There's a great prize this month for one lucky gal, so go check it out!
