Well, Mr. Bear sat and sat and sat...just like Prudence from his favorite Potty Book. He looked around, he listened to the birds. He sat there for a loooong time. Then all of a sudden I heard him whistling to get my attention. Let me tell you, a whistling Bear on his potty is quite the scene, but I kept my composure and "closed my eyes" as he requested so I could see the SURPRISE he made for me. OMG!! It was a full potty, let's just leave it at that!
He insisted on showing the surprise to Papa too!!! So he called my Dad over and had him close his eyes to reveal the BIG surprise!!!! Happy Father's Day Papa, LOL!!!!!
Being surrounded by nature helped and being left alone for more than 3 seconds without his brother pestering him was beneficial!! After that day The Bear is potty trained!!!! WOO HOO!!!!
I know this is the type of post that gives Mommy Bloggers a bad name, but I had to tell the tale of Luccio's Potty Plight because I am proud of him and he is proud of himself! As crazy as it sounds it is an achievement & milestone for both of us!! I have taught another human being how to pee and poop into a specified container!! No more diapers! Babyhood is over. Its sad, but FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!
In 20 years when he discovers this story I am sure he will be unhappy that I detailed it in cyberspace, but oh well!!
