Timmy Peed in the Potty!

Yep, that's right. My big boy Timmy peed in the potty. I have been trying for months to get him to pee in there, but he wouldn't sit there long enough to pee, and my timing must have been off.

I went to library to try to get a book I've been wanting, and ended up looking in the kids' videos section and found Once Upon A Potty-For Him. So, I brought it home and we watched it together with my input. Then I brought his potty out (with apple juice in it, Timmy didn't know) and I put Elmo on the potty and asked him to pee. Then I showed Timmy what Elmo "did". Then we flushed it away and rinsed it out. I put Timmy on the potty with no diaper and replayed the video. It was about halfway over, when I put Timmy's hand in warm water, and then he peed! I was so excited, and so was Timmy. I put big boy underwear on him later in the day which he had an accident in, but he peed in the potty three times that day. I'm so proud of my big boy!
