Captain's Log: Day 2

Yesterday, Marco and I had a big talk. I showed him the jar of m&ms. I showed him the cars. I showed him the new Lightning McQueen and Spiderman underwear. I explained how he could get the m&ms and the cars. He seemed to grasp it all. Wanted to wear the new underwear right away. Immediately went pee-pee as he has instructed me to call it. Received his first m&m. As soon as he finished his m&m he said he wanted to go pee-pee again. Um, no, it doesn't work that way. He starts screaming "I want to go pee-pee!" This was not a problem I had forseen. Ok, managed to quell that argument and said he could try again in 30 minutes. Pretty much every 30 minutes for the rest of the evening he went pee-pee.

After dinner, Marco and Alessandro were playing soccer and basketball in the backyard. At some point Marco poops. Ok, fine, whatever. We clean him up and stick him in the bath. No cars earned.

This morning as soon as Marco wakes up I ask if he wants to go pee-pee. He says no, but almost immediately leaves the bed and the next thing I know he is naked. He didn't actually go to the bathroom since he had already taken care of that in his diaper, but Spiderman underwear are requested. Alessandro took him to school and put a diaper on him before they left.

Today after we got home. I asked is he wanted to go pee-pee. Yes! Ok, pee-pee, hands washed, underwear on, no Mommy, not the Lightning McQueen underwear, Spiderman underwear, then a red m&m. Later poops in underwear again, ok clean up, new underwear. Finally, we are getting ready for bed. He is naked, I say do you want to go pee-pee before we put your pajamas on. He runs in the bathroom, runs out of the bathroom and into his room and pees on his bed. Why????? Why do you do this to me????

Oh l feel for you!, it took my son Liam longer than it took my daughter to master this. They say boys are slower! Hang in there, it will all come together.
