What is it with boys and their video games? F was doing so great at potty training. Then I let him play Lego Star Wars on the X-box. I would ask him if he had to go potty and he'd reply, 'No, I'm okay.' 2 min. later he pee-d and pooped in his underwear. I told him that if he did it again I would turn the X-box off. Well sure enough...he did it again and that was it for the X-box.

He had 2 accidents on Monday, 3 on Tuesday, 0 on Wednesday, 0 on Thursday, 0 on Friday, and 1 on Saturday. And why did he have an accident on Saturday? BECAUSE HE WAS PLAYING THE X-BOX, THAT'S WHY! Oh, I knew there was a reason I have always hated those things. He gets so into his game that he forgets everything else and it doesn't matter if he has to go potty...HE CAN'T TEAR HIMSELF AWAY. A was the same with the TV. Oh my.

Besides the X-box, F is doing such a great job. And he is so positive...'Good I didn't go pee in my underwear' and 'Good I didn't go poop in my underwear'. Oh I love him. He only pooped once in his underwear this week. He really is doing a good job. And besides having to stay home, this potty training thing is a piece of cake. I think he may be my easiest. Hurray! I'll give him one more week before I declare that he is potty trained...I don't want to jinx myself. Way to go, F. You are a super pee-er!

I'm pretty sure that if Jas thought he could get away with it, he would also pee in his pants to avoid having to take a break from XBOXing. :)

Oh you are describing me with Jace right now! Except if he is outside that is where our accidents happen, he doesn't want to stop playing. Sounds like Ford is doing great though, so good job to you both!!
