So, last night, I did the same thing before his bath. Once again, we had success. So, before his bedtime routine, we thought we would try again. He sat on the potty for about 15 minutes then did his business...both kinds! Whoo-hooo! I'm sure you can believe this but I DID take a picture but I will refrain from posting it. I mean, seriously...who besides a mother would want to see that??
I took a few pictures of the waiting last night. He had his Brown Bear book there to keep him occupied. We all (including Max) sat in there while waiting on things to happen.
Out of nowhere, he clasped his hands to pray. You have to understand our life lately for this to make sense. Ever since Jonah grasped the idea of praying, we do it A LOT! I mean...ALL THE TIME! For instance, at LaFiesta last week, we said the blessing about 12 times. The kid loves to pray. I guess that works out well since he is a Preacher's Kid!
We don't want to discourage him from praying because we want him to grow up understanding he can talk to God anytime. It doesn't have to be meal time or bed time or even church time. So, when he was sitting on the potty and clasped his hands, we did too! We paused and thanked God for the potty seat. We said Amen, he said amen and he went back to reading Brown Bear.
