Potty Training

This morning there was a bit of an incident on the stairs. Let's just leave it at that. As Kgördee was the elbow grease behind the clean up effort he suggested that it was really time Ell became house broken. We haven't pushed the issue because Boodles has shown no interest at all in underwear, toilets or not sitting in his own filth.
So we made a big deal of it, new super hero undies, chocolate chips as an incentive and a ridiculous amount of clapping and praise.
Most of the day went really well, lots of watered down Gatorade, a show while sitting on the toilet and even three unsolicited trips to the toilet. But by five o'clock I ran out of steam and there were a few trips to the shower. For the first day I think we did ok and at four years old we can't go back to diapers so we will see how tomorrow goes.
Mostly I am pleased with how excited Boodles was over his success, I love his smiling little face!
