The Potty Chronicles




In my prayers everynight I include a P.S. at the end. It sounds like this, " Please heavenly father don't let my son go to his third birthday party in a diaper, Please father help me convince Jaxon that all the cool kids wear Panties". The bottom line is that he's just not that into it. My friend Melissa is coming up with new potty techniques weekly. First she said to put a gumball machine in the bathroom. I thought this was going to be the winner for sure. Jaxon was into it for one day and then completely over it. Next, she devised this miraculous Potty Chart idea. I'll keep you posted on the progress. I'm sure everyones dying to hear about how many times he made it to the potty today. Thanks again for pretending!!!

My mom says to put Cheerios in the toilet and have him aim and try to hit the Cheerios! It apparantly made using the potty more fun for my brother. Also, keep him in the underwear and load up on his favorite drinks, and reward him a lot when he uses the toilet! Hope this helps! =]

i said a little prayer last night that Jaxon would enjoy the potty chart. Remember to let him pick out the prizes...that is key. If it works i'll start making one for Xavier. good luck!
