We really started to work seriously on potty training a week ago. I knew I was going to be home all day Saturday and had bought some underwear for Hank that week. Soon after we got up on Saturday and I changed his poopy diaper, I put the underwear on and kept after him all morning about using his pot. He had several accidents were he wet his pants. He would get mad when I "bugged" him and would say, "my pee is empty", or "my poop is empty." A few times he would throw the underwear across the room and say he did not want to wear them because they were dumb! Finally around 11:30 or noon he did a little poop on his pot! He was very excited because I had told him I would take him to ride the trains if he pooped that day. We quick got dressed and went to Strasburg and rode the little choo choos and the Thomas ride on train. We made plans to go back another day when Daddy could ride the "Big" choo choo with us ( he was away fishing).

Fast forward one week and Hank is doing very well. Around the house he is wearing underwear and if we go somewhere he wears a pull-up. At night he is wearing a diaper. He likes to look at books and have someone read to him when he is sitting on the pot. He also always wants to know if we are proud of him. This past Saturday we took him back to ride the Big choo choo. While we were out he went to the bathroom with Daddy and did not have any accidents.
