Okay, I am so proud to announce that Aaron Jr. is still doing a remarkable job with his potty training. It has been his own idea to go potty for the past couple of days, except I have to remind him when he first wakes up.
Today, just as I was about to post this posting... I went in to see why he was taking so long in the bathroom and the floor was completely flooded and there was saturated toilet paper all over the floor. I guess now that he has become a master user of the toilet, he decided it was time to start treating it as his shiny new toy. I think he figured that he was making it too easy for me and he had to start adding a little more work back into my day. I guess he didn't want me to become too idle. :) As I took some towels and cleaned it up, he stood at the door telling me, 'I'm so sorry, Mom' over and over. I kept telling him thank you and to try not to do it again, then he would just say sorry again. I am telling you, he is the sweetest kid ever. When I was done and the bathroom was clean again, he cheered and was so excited. What a kid! I can't be too upset when he is so sweet.
Here is his potty chart all completed. He chose every sticker that went on there. I helped him a little in choosing the sticker with the Brasil flag on it. :)
Okay, here is Aaron Jr. with his potty sticker chart that is now completed and also with his rewards for completing said potty sticker chart.
As he got his shoes on to go to the store, he was very focused on getting there to get his toy for his sticker chart being done. He even helped me get my shoes. We walked up and down the toy aisles in Target so he could make a wise and informed decision about his reward... he ended up picking the very first toy he saw when we first started. It is a toy golf club and toy golf balls. They are soft like nerf things. He is loving it. Because he chose something cheap, I let him pick a couple of cheap DVDs as well. He chose a Power Rangers movie and a Scooby Doo movie. He is obsessed with the Power Rangers now after watching it about 5 times so far. He is so cute.
I just had to end with our end of the day routine. This was last night. I take my shoes off and put them by the front door, then Aaron Jr. takes his and has to line them up perfectly with mine. It always makes me smile so big and it brings such joy to my soul. He is a sweetheart.
Now, as for all of the things I dreaded doing by myself since I am now a lone parent here...
