Potty Training Day 6

I am pleased to report more success today. Captain Adorable had zero accidents today. He went to the potty to poop by himself this morning! And of course throughout the day (several hours spent at Cheerful's house and outside at a playground) he initiated peeing several times and cooperated willingly whenever I suggested that perhaps he needed to do a pee. He has no compunction about going outside (which is good for right now but might be bad...), and has gotten better about holding it so that no urine gets on his clothes. He even washes his hands after he goes!

We've been watching a lot of Little Bear. Starting on Wednesday I am no longer going to track the pees done outside the house, so his reward tv will decrease.

Captain Adorable was angry to find himself in his own room when he woke up from his nap. You see, he fell asleep in the car on the way home from Cheerful's place, so I carried him to his room for the rest of the nap. This upset him very much and he cried with anger about it and was not himself for the rest of the day. However, despite being upset, he went to sleep in his own room tonight. We will see if he stays there till daylight.

Got a chance to catch up with an old friend today. I heard from him about his impending divorce and thought a lot about other friends of mine/ours who have been through that. I am oh so lucky to be married to my darling Captain Obvious. I think we are lucky to have each other.

'Cheerful' woke up from his nap saying, "O-tay, Mom, I ready doe." (I'm ready to go). I asked where he was ready to go to and he said, "(Adorable's) house!"

Glad y'all came over! It was a lot of fun! Sorry I welcomed you so shabbily! I'll definitley remember you're coming the next time! Promise!
