Potties and Candy

Little Boy is feeling much better now than he was a couple of days ago. Thanks for your well-wishes! Now, about that candy bar. The candy bar was a potty-training bribe. We've been having the HARDEST time potty training this kid. Part of the problem is Little Boy's reluctance, and part of it is Isaac and me being inconsistent with it. Yeah, Little Boy is four years old; yeah, we've tried a million potty training theories; yeah, whatever. Anyway, he's finally almost completely trained. And on the day he was sick, he earned a little candy bar for good potty training habits. {He picked the candy out himself. We keep it on top of the fridge and call it his "bum candy."} He did get to eat his candy bar the day after--along with a second one, for that day. Pretty sweet, if you ask me.


  1. Ah the potty training stage...you poor thing! Looks like you have a good handle on it though...Can't think of a better motivator than chocolate!!

  2. I am dreading teaching my little guys potty training when the day comes down to it. The other day before bath night, Porter peed on the floor and I exclaimed, "Oh yikes!" really loud and he stopped his peeing instantly. Now... if I could find a way to reverse that effect on a potty then maybe I could master this technique.

    Then again, maybe not.

  3. "Poop Smith, did you give me bum candy?"
