"Where a Kid Can Be a Kid!"

Will (finally) got enough stickers on his sticker chart for using the potty for a trip to Chuck E Cheese.  Rather than all of us go, it was an outing with just Will and Daddy.  Will's seen the commercials for there for a looong time, and we live pretty close to one so whenever we pass it he demands to know when we're going!  So this afternoon, the two of them went off on their adventure.  Sean and I napped and knitted.  (I'll let you guess who did what) 

Two hours later, I had a little boy who was very excited to tell me all about the fresh cheese pizza Daddy got for them and the foam rocket launcher he won playing games!  However, when Daddy prompted him as to what he would like to earn for his next prize he announced that he was done with using the potty and never going to use it again!  He quickly changed his mind when I brought home a "Slinky Dog" from Toy Story and announced that was going to be his next prize for using the potty.  His response was "I want to use the potty right now!  And I'll fill it to the ceiling!!"

Who said a bit of bribery is a bad thing??  I just hope that he doesn't expect to get rewarded for using the toilet when he's in second grade....
