I had two presents that I wanted for Mother’s Day this year. The first was for Conor to be walking, which he has now become a little pro at and is walking all over the place and having a fun time keeping up with his big brother. The second present that I wanted very much and have wanted for one whole year now is for Kayce to poop on the potty. And it makes me one very proud Mama to finally say that he has been pooping on the potty now for one week!! I didn’t think I’d be able to get to say that until he was 4 or 5 the way that we have spent this past year with all the underwear cleanings. I decided to go the route of tough love this time around. He would not get to watch tv, play with toys, and would be sent to his room from now on if he pooped in his underwear. Tough, yes. BUT, it never even came down to that because the first two days we caught him before he started going and he made it to the potty, and after that he then let us know when he had to go poop. We have an awesome poo poo in the potty dance, and are sure to have his favorite treats in the house. Donuts, m & m’s, skittles, and now even tattoos!
Oh what pride I have in both of my boys. I really don’t think they are ever going to top this most perfect Mother’s Day for me!!
