One thing we have had trouble with is POOPING in the potty. GROSS I know but hey it's usually the LAST thing ALL kids do, but with a special needs child it is even HARDER to get them to that point. He has been regular potty trained for a couple yrs now :) YEAH... but OMG the POOP!!!
We tried EVERYTHING....stickers, rewards, treats, making him sit on the potty ALL the time basically...NOTHING worked!!
Being that we only have 1 girl who is VERY GIRLY GIRL...I have found myself buying TONS of finger nail polish. Of course Walmart had some the other day that was PRINCESS FINGERNAIL POLISH..so Reamae HAD to have it!!
While I was painting them for the 1000th time
Turtle said "Paint my nails!"
I replied " If you Poop in the potty I will paint your nails"
He immediately ran into the bathroom. Now he has done this MANY times before when we tried to give something for him pooping in the potty. Nothing would come from it UNTIL THIS DAY!!!
That's right folks...He POOPED BIG!!! *Thought we were going to have to unclog the potty haha* OMG soo happy!! He picked the first color BLUE!!
Now I wasn't too excited cause I thought maybe it was a fluke. So the next day I reminded him if he pooped in the potty I would paint his nails any color.
Guess what that day we did GREEN!! That's right he pooped in the potty 2 days in a ROW!! That was the first time EVER he had done that OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!
We are now on ONE week of POOPING in the POTTY at home!! And now he has been doing it WITHOUT being reminded that is what he gets. But of course the first thing he says after we clean him up is "FINGERNAIL POLISH" He is sooo proud of it!! His PPCD *special needs class* teacher at school said he has gone to school and PROUDLY shown his fingernail polish and told them it was for Pooping in the Potty!!!
My hubby doesn't freak out to badly cause most of the nails come off in the tub and honestly he is so proud now he doesn't even care ;) hehe Old school you know ;)
So while this fingernail polish is the crappiest ever IT HAS BEEN THE BEST $6.00 I have ever spent!!!
