Riley has been on again off again potty training. We hit a major milestone this fall when he started teeteeing in the potty (or outside) all the time. We have had problems pooping. I started jars with marbles for every time he poops in the potty. He didn't take to that. So I have changed motives.....I now have a Potty Chart in the bathroom. It has 3 columns..Tee Tee/Poo Poo/Poo Poo in pants. He gets a star for every time he poos or pees in the potty, but he also gets a frowning face if he poos in his pants. We went all day yesterday sitting on the potty with nothing. He received several stars for peeing but also received 2 frowning faces for pooing in his pants. He looked at his chart this morning and said "no frowning face" so I explained it again to him. Right before lunch he went in and POOPED IN THE POTTY!!! Yay! He was so excited..he still is! I let him pick his star and place it on his chart. He called his daddy and told him. After lunch, I put him to nap, and right before kisses he said "I pooped in the potty." Have we reached the plateau? I sure hope so!
