The Little Person Levi
Levi is now three and half. We had tried to get him potty trained about 3 or 4 months ago with no luck whatsoever. He would cry when we asked him to go to the bathroom. So we waited, all the while talking to him about being a "big boy". We have heard that dealing with boys can be difficult when potty training them. We started last Monday to try again. The whole day with no success at all. We had tried to bribe him with candy which can work with some kids. Not Levi, he was pretty determined to continue to wet his pants. So the next day, Jessie decided to up the anti a little thinking that this process would take weeks or months with an "Angry Birds skateboard". This was a great reward for a little person that has bigger sisters who ride bikes and scooters all the time. Jessie had also read that sometime all the little people need is a day or two of having accidents on so they could feel what it is like. Wednesday, no more diapers. I am talking every hour, announcing that he has to go, and that he was going to get an angry birds skateboard. Jessie and I had to laugh at ourselves and wonder what were we thinking. We both felt that it might be a long drawn out processes yet two full days and boom done. So on Friday night, we all went downtown and bought him an "Angry Birds skateboard". He had one or two accidents when he was to busy playing and forgot to use the bathroom. He is very proud of his skateboard that he even has been sleeping with it in his bed. We are also very happy to be done with diapers. It only took 10 years to do so. It is also a little.sad. We are now done with diapers but we are also done with the baby stage of raising kids. It was only yesterday that Jessie and I were finishing college with our first little bundle of joy Anna almost 10 years ago. Time seems to be going by faster and not slower.
