Update on Potty-Training

On Wednesday, J* decided he wanted to wear underwear to school, and hubby could not dissuade him. This request basically came out of nowhere, since we have only been putting him in underwear for a few hours on the weekends. Well, the little guy did great! He had a nap accident on Wednesday, a mid-morning accident on Thursday, and no accident on Friday! I am so proud! Unfortunately, he would not poop in the potty, so he went three days without a bowel movement, poor little guy. By Saturday, I just let him poop in his underwear, b/c he was so afraid to sit on the potty to poop. He kept saying, "poop is bad" and I have no idea why. Anyway, Sunday morning, he did it! Told me he needed to poop, we went to the potty, and there it went! We made a big deal, gave him a present (a Bob the Builder workshop as we have been promising for over a month now), and he was thrilled. Then the little stinker went on to wet his pants three times that day. Oh well, two poops forward, one pee back!

WTG!!! Sounds like progress is being made! I really wonder where kids get the idea that pee is ok on potty but poop will be bad or hurt them or something. When I was little I was afraid to poop on potty too!
