More on Phoebe and our new potty chairs

Phoebe has been taking her meds - reluctantly - and they have definitely got her eating again. She has been spoiled by Tom. When she wasn't eating he was making pork chops and /or chicken for her and now she won't eat unless there is some meat in it. Not canned dog food meat, but meat cooked on our stove. Her energy is definitely up and her personality is back. Her tumors have decreased as well. We'll see what happens after her roids run out.... that will be the test.

The kids have been talking about poop a lot and are really curious about it so I got some potty chairs for them. We aren't by any means potty training yet, but I am letting them sit on them when they want to. Today after dinner Jason HAD to sit on the potty chair W/O his diaper. So I let him. This is after we spent some time on it this a.m. After breakfast I was changing his diaper and he ran to the bathroom screaming to poop so I ran over and let him in. We all sat on the potty together... Lily in her diaper and pants. I was surprised at how long we all sat there. When Jason got up he had peed in the potty. So funny. He was pretty proud of himself... it was definitely just b/c we sat there for so long... anyway back to tonight. We had to drag the potties into the living room this time. Jason naked again (well except is socks) and Lily in her diaper again (she had already pooped her pants). Jason sat there for at least 20 mins. He would read a book then ask for another one - he didn't even try to stand up. Then he wanted some blocks so I brought those over and we stacked blocks, he would knock them down then ask me to bring them back never moving. When he was done w/ it he said, "All done." and let me wipe him. He had pooped just a teeny bit. I put his diaper on him and about a minute later he pooped for real. ha ha So I guess he gets the concept, but I know he's not ready to do the full deal. I really can't believe how long he sat there! Lily likes to sit on the potty a lot and likes to stick wipes in it (see pic above) like mommy. :)

    Love the potty chairs! We had ours in our den with both girls too to get them oriented. I think it is funny that Jason just sits and plays. Good for him! And we are glad to hear that the meds are working for Phoebe!

  3. My son has been trying out the potty chair too. He really loves to sit there with a book. So funny! He's peed in it and did poo a little, but he tends to wait for that part when the diaper is back on too! I'm glad he likes the thing so much. He calls it "popeye"!
