boys and their trucks.

October 13th | older posts

i thought it would be fun to fill this rusty dump truck with mini pumpkins and put it out on the porch. the boys have been having a blast pushing it around and dumping out the pumpkins.


we’ve been trying to encourage matty to go ‘poopy in the potty’, so the other day i picked up this really cool remote-controlled hummer at the store for incentive. i didn’t want him to think it was a ‘peepee toy’ so i explained that this was a ‘poopy toy’ and he could earn it if he went ‘poopy in the potty’. he proceeds to scream that, ‘it’s not a poopy toy, it’s a peepee toy’. and i reiterated that it was definitely a ‘poopy toy’. of course this conversation seemed completely rational to me but when i looked up there were quite a few people staring at us. well the joke is on them, because it worked! matty went ‘poopy in the potty’!! of course once he earned it, steve was having so much fun playing with it that i had to remind him it was matty’s. gotta love it!!

    Matty is a pretty sharp dude. He knows what is a peepee toy and what’s a poopy toy. That little Hummer is very cool. Gooo Matty!

    That is hilarious! When we were trying to get Jonny to go poop on the potty, he quit going altogether for about 3 days. We didn’t give him an incentive like that cool Hummer toy (we’re not as nice as you!) No, instead I merely threatened him with a glycerin suppository. That worked too.

    Congratulations! Well done Matty and Mom.

    I’m fighting the same fight with my 3 year old. I even promised I’d buy him his own Gameboy. But still no poopy in the potty :(
