Summerstorm~ We are potty training our little boy who will be 3 on Friday. It's been a rough go, but he will now tell me when he has to pee and will sit on the little potty (he wants absolutely nothing to do with the normal toilet) He does insist on holding hands though. He used to just sit and scream at the top of his lungs and 45 minutes later he'd let his pee out. It could become quite deafening in our echoy little bathroom. As far as the pooping goes we have not made much progress. I'm hoping to have him totally potty trained before we travel back east to visit family this July or before that next thing goes wrong with me and i'm back in the hospital. He sees me empty my bag a lot but that doesn't help. Big sister has offered to let him watch her go, but he doesn't really care about that either. So he will hold it in for days, until he finally lets it out, usually while he's palying quieting in his room so no one can see.
As far as him ever standing and going, I'm sure it will happen someday, but now he shows no interest at all. He won't even touch let alone hold himself down there and screams bloody murder if anyone else does. Hmmm, we all know that will change:)
I dont have really any suggestions to share but I wanted you to know I'm in the same boat and to wish you good luck and happy pooping:)
