News Flash!

Kendrick is becoming very independent. On the way to school yesterday, he took off his shoes in the car. I handed them back to him and asked him to put them on and he did it. When I picked Kendrick up from school his teacher told me that when he got up from his nap, he tee-teed in the potty! I said, "Are you kidding me?" You see, he hasn't been truly interested in the idea at all. He likes to flush it; he likes to unroll the paper; he likes to sit on it (sort of), but he can't get anything to come out. Not a drop. So, we did a dance and I praised him sufficently that he is interested in it now. He came home and tried again, but to no avail. He was also frustrated and didn't want to put his pants on, so I told him to do it himself. This pleased him just fine, as he got the on and came to show me. Oh well if they were backwards.

After getting home from errands this morning, he goes to his room and proceeds to strip down. His teacher had taught him an easier way to stand and hold himself up. So, for an hour and a half we rotated through drinking water, reading a book and trying to go. I was getting tired of it after an hour and nearly gave up. At one point he said, "Go away!" I went around the corner and he did it! Got on the wall and floor, but he was close. He just needed some privacy.

He got to put on underware and made it through lunch, but didn't make it back to the potty in time. He's on the right track now and he will learn. I guess I need to now get my brain in gear and keep at it.

Maybe it's just me, but I think Jacob on Lost looks like an older version of Kendrick.
