Potty Time

Kendrick typically has a schedule for when he does his business and if it wasn't done first thing in the morning, it is usually accomplished by 11:00 A.M. Today, neither of those options occurred. After picking Cavett up from school we came home to a snack of yogurt and granola. Upon finishing, Kendrick said, "Poop!" I immediately said ok and ran upstairs to find Cavett's little potty under the sink, stripped Kendrick and grabbed some books.

Both kids were actually very interested in this contraption. It was like Cavett was seeing it for the first time again. Kendrick was fine sitting on it and only every now and then did I have to put him back on. We read several of his favorite books and then Cavett found a nursery rhyme book--one he could "read" all the words. It was so sweet to see him reading to his brother.

As for accomplishments of Kendrick--he did end up with some liquid in the bowl, but no solids. However, after we gave up I went downstairs to my bathroom to do my business and Kendrick really watched and started to get "that look." Again I stripped him and held him on the big potty. We ended up with one small piece. I don't expect this to happen again for awhile, but he's starting to get the idea. That's all I'm interested in--baby steps.
