Agreed! We just went through that ourselves a couple months ago. May your stain remover and stomachs be strong, and may your munchkin find potty success quickly! LOL

We've found that prizes for going potty have been very successful. That said, cleaning the potty is no fun.

OK.  I thought about posting this to the disgusting kid themed thread from way back but . . .  Since Jeeter brought it up:

I have a son who is 95% successful on the potty for #1.   Nap time and mornings are harder but there are days when he gets up completely clean.  #2 is its own horrible experience.  Today, I cleaned up 3 poonamis (yes, a tsunami poo - up the back, down the leg, on the floor as he walks toward you . . . You get the picture - and I am sorry for it!).  These moments are the sole horror shows in the house lately and I need to work on him.  How do you get your sons to take a dump in the potty?  My other boys were easier or perhaps more accurately had their own issues - this just wasn't one of them.  My daughter was easy until later when she became constipated and that was a whole different issue.  This kid doesn't seem to feel a priority to take care of business and I am at a loss as to how to proceed.  

Oh and yes, we offer "nummies" for every "chocolate surprise" delivered in the potty.  - Dark cocoa covered almonds to be exact: yes, I am amused by it.  Does that make me evil?

This may sound weird, but I took my two younger boys in the bathroom with me. I’d sit on the toilet, and they’d sit on their potty. I’d flip through a Cabelas catalog, they’d flip through Dr. Seuss.

Not evil at all. Evil would be feeding him a couple of purple Airheads candies, then waiting for Pilgrim’s reaction when the little guy sinks the Brown, I mean Purple, October. Yes, it turns purple. Ask how I know. Big Grin

One of the biggest triumphs of potty training is when your boys can finally use the urinals in a public restroom.

I respectfully disagree for 2 reasons. 1) hitting a urinal is like stepping on grass in your yard. 2) I don’t have to clean up.

Triumph for me is when they hit the toilet bowl. Not the sides or outside of the toilet. Not the toilet seat hinges, the floor, walls, or mirror.

On a lighter note, feeding a 3 year old a blue Airhead candy while your mother-in-law is visiting is SOOOO worth the laugh.
