Michael's new potty!

This is too funny not to post. I've had trouble getting Michael Isaac interested enough in the potty to go. So last night I asked him if he wanted his own potty and he said yes. We took a family trip to Wal-Mart and let him pick out his own potty. Great choice, he picked one that plays "dunt dunt dunt dunt" everytime you potty. (you have to actually deposit something in the potty for it to play". We made the biggest deal out of this potty and when he got home, he was SOOOOO excited and wanted to try it out. He sat on it and waited, and waited, and waited, and nothing was happening. I told him it was ok we could try again tomorrow. He would not get up.

Soon, Bryan and I both just left him in there because he was determined to use this potty. In a few mins. I went to check on him and he had taken the potty apart and was putting it back together. He got it together and sat back down. The whole time just filled with excitment to use this potty. I almost had the dishes washed when he ran in the kitchen dancing up and down saying he had pee peed. We ran to the potty and there were three little drops of pee in the potty. We jumped up and down and had a grand celebration!! He got stickers and a cookie and big high fives and the whole works.

He gets up this morning and first thing wants to go use his potty. Again, he sits and sits and nothing happens. He wants us to leave the room, so we do and in a min. I hear the dunt dunt dunt dunt song and I run into the potty and there is pee! He is dancing up and down and all over the place!

He eats breakfast and back to his potty he goes. This time (after sitting forever) he does a poo job and is so excited he won't even put on his pull up. He just wants to sit on his potty all day! I get a comode brush and clean the big tolit and he has to use it to clean his too. Later he pees again and runs and ask me for a cookie. I told him that stickers were for pee and cookies were for poo. He ran back to his potty and worked hard for a long time and came running saying, Michael get a cookie now? I ran to the potty and there was the smallest piece of poo I have ever seen, he wanted a cookie REAL bad. He got one! If I had known potty training was going to be this easy, I would have bought this floor potty a long time ago, but then again, he may not have been ready.
