OMG, you guys! I have created a monster with Andrew and potty training. He is doing amazing! Not one accident and only uses a diaper at sleep times. but the control this kid has over his bodily functions is impressive and really annoying! lol.
I leave his bottom half bare while we are at home, and moved the little Baby Bjorn potty chair to the living room so it's right in his eye-line. The problem is all.day.long he will sit on the potty pee a tiny amount, get super excited and we go through the routine of taking it to the bathroom, flushing the big potty and washing the potty and our hands. He likes to put the bucket back in the potty chair. The second he does, he sits, pees another small amount, and then wants to do the whole routine again. At first it was cute, but he will do this 12 times in a row- no joke! And, he'll do it with his poop too- which adds in the wiping element into the mix. If I knew he had that much control to stop midstream, I would have PT'd him a while ago.
He can do a full sitting, but apparently this is more fun. I've even stopped giving him chocolate as a reward, thinking he was working the system to get more candy. But even with just a "good job" and a high-5 he keeps doing it. I've tried telling him he, "Great job, Andrew. Now finish going pee/poop." Then leaving the potty there for him to finish, and he'll try to take it to the bathroom to do the routine himself. The last thing I want is a bucket of pee/poop spilling on the floor (even if it is just a small amount).
Okay, this really isn't that big of a problem and I'm really glad he is doing so well. I'm sure the novilty will wear off soon, but it does get old so I wanted to vent a little. Silly kid!
