You go potty, you get a sweet

I have no idea when it started.

Initially, it never crossed my mind to start potty train Jayden as I left the dirty task to his school to manage.

However, Jayden has been showing signs of waiting to go to the toilet. And so, we took out the potty over the weekend and left it in our bath room, hoping for a miracle to happen.

We have randomly told Jayden before that if he needed to pee pee or poo poo, he needs to use the potty (although back then, we didn't even have a potty in the house). Last Sunday, Jayden initiated that he needed to poo poo and proceeded to the potty. And so he sat, and sat, and sat. But nothing came out. Then he asked if he could take off his diapers and try again. And he sat, and sat, and sat again. Still zilch.

I don't know what sweet mother of science struck me, I suggested to Jayden confidently that if he can poo poo in his potty, he will get a sweet.

A few minutes later, Jayden came running to me, diaper-less, screaming "Mummy! Mummy! Sweet! Sweet!" I proceeded to the potty, and found a tiny dropping. REJOICE! My son has finally poo-ed in the potty!

And because parents are supposed to keep promises to their kid, Jayden got himself a sweet.

Shortly after, Jayden managed to squeeze a second tiny dropping and requested for another sweet. So scheming!!!

Later in the night, our son also managed to pee for the first time in the potty.

Are we looking forward to diaper-free days too soon?
