The Power of M&Ms
This weekend we decided to get serious about potty-training Olsen. We put him in fun underwear and set the timer to put him on his little potty. He needed an M&M to sit on the potty and would get three more for peeing. He has actually done really well! On Saturday, he had two accidents and told us right away about it. On Sunday and today, he has had no accidents! Sometimes, he doesn't want to sit on the potty, but M&Ms are too hard to resist. He still hasn't pooped in the potty, because he always seems to do that right after he wakes up from sleeping and is still wearing his diaper, so I'm not sure how to go about that. I have been trying to space out the interval of getting him on the potty, and I'm hoping that soon, he'll be able to tell me when he has to go instead of us putting him on the potty. But we've had a lot of progress these last two days!
