Project - Bakugans, Underwear-Wearer Makers

Warning: This is a layout about potty-training, so the word “poo” comes up a few times! So don't read if it'll offend you! ;)
Note: My son was well over 4 years old when he was potty-trained, which is why this is such a big deal!
Journaling: June 25, 2008. Sean has been dry for many months now, I'd say maybe 6 months, I'm not certain. So he's been wearing underwear, no more diapers. Poos, however, were a whole other story. Every 2 days, in the evening, we knew we'd have to clean up a soiled pair of underwear. We were willing to do it for a while, figuring he'd “get it” soon enough, right? Plus he was so proud of his underwear, we didn't want to “regress” to pull-ups. But no. He wanted nothing to do with it!!! Arghhhhhh! Then it was his 4th birthday on May 14th. Xavier came to the party with his Bakugan toys and Sean was completely captivated! So when the party was over, we told Sean: If you poo in the toilet, we'll bring you to the toy store and you can choose a toy. And he'd say he wanted Bakugans. We figured that would do it, he loved those toys so much! But nooooo. He kept saying “if caca toilet, I get Bakugans” but he'd still go downstairs, poop in his pants and come and tell us. No toilet! Then, not even 2 weeks ago, I was at a Friday night crop at Scrapbook Centrale and I was telling Brigitte and Sass about Sean not wanting to poop in the toilet. They said I needed an incentive. I said â€œI gave him one, we'll bring him to the toy store.â€? They said “no, you have to get the toy, put it somewhere he can see it but can't reach it. You'll see, it'll work.” Sounds cruel, but it had to be done!!!! So on the Sunday, I went and got him a box of 6 small Bakugans and 3 larger ones. I showed it to him but didn't let him touch it. I put the box on top of the microwave. Believe me, he cried that evening! He wanted his Bakugans!!! Then he started saying “if I go caca in the toilet, I get 6 Bakugans!” Five days later, he pooped in the toilet!!! And I am proud to say that since then, he has earned 2 of the large Bakugans and I'm certain the 3rd one will be his soon!!!
