Number One Son goes Number Two

J. doesn't get much mention in this blog, because he is generally doing well, I suppose. One area he has found challenging is having a poop anywhere other than in his pull-up, which he wears at night (I write this blog assuming that it won't be around by the time my kids are old enough to be embarrassed by it!)

I kept upping the positive reinforcer ante (okay, bribes), to the point where he was getting a full-blown party once he accomplished the deed. Well, he finally did it, and we had the party. He ended up confused, and told one person we were going trick or treating, told others that it was his birthday, and actually asked us to sing "Happy Birthday" to him at the height of the festivities, which we did.

So, there is a light at the end of the potty-training tunnel.

Jannet,
I tried to find your blog, but haven't found it yet.
I'll email you back.

The interesting thing is, J. isn't even the one with disabilities in our family.

To be honest, if we only had him, I think I'd be more worried about him. He either has some sensory or attachment issues (pretty mild), which I think are due to poor nutrition (we adopted him at eight months of age).
Since the twins have much more serious challenges, J. seems very "typical" to us, overall.

Hang in there!
