Potty Time Tuesday: Break Time?

Well, after nearly a week and a half of Blake running around without a diaper, I decided to take a bit of a break and start up again in a couple weeks. Blake wasn't catching on like I had hoped and I was cleaning up more pee puddles and poo piles than I ever thought I was going to!

Funny thing is-Blake doesn't seem to want to take a break! We seem to have come to something that works...at least for now. After putting diapers back on, he kept wanting them off to go potty! So, right now, he goes potty when he wants to and goes in his diaper when he isn't thinking about the potty. Sooooo much nicer than cleaning up accidents and it has been a lot less stressful for both of us! :-) Plus-he is making it to the potty about the same amount that he did when he was running around half naked. I don't know how long it will take him to get trained by this method, but I'm pretty sure he was going to go at his own rate no matter what I tried! :-)
P.S.-The magic reward (after a lot of trial and error) seems to be chocolate chips! I think he is taking after his mommy! ;-)

Awesome! I bet it's a relief not to have to be cleaning up the messes. And chocolate chips...??!! Would have worked for me! How'd you discover that one??
Good job Blake!
