He did it, he did it, he did it!

We have p**p in the potty.  I am SO excited!  I should probably be embarassed by how excited this makes me, actually.

The school seems to have created a potty monster but I’m not going to worry about that.  They are using PECs and Monkey has learned that if he grabs the “bathroom” picture and signs “potty” he gets to leave the room and go to the bathroom.  It’s the perfect escape and he has quickly trained them.  He’s totally taking advantage of it and they’re realizing that they’ve created a monster. 

This morning he didn’t want to go to class, he was not very well regulated at all for some reason.  As soon as he “checked in” to class he grabbed the bathroom picture and was granted a field trip, lol.  His lead teacher looked a bit put out, she knows what is going on but…that’s their problem!

    That is great for him and you. Not so much for the teachers but they now have to learn to deal with it. I am sure like everything else, maybe he will loose his enthusiasm for this after a while.

    That’s cute. Hey, if he’s actually going during some of those “field trips,” then it’s worth it!
    Good job, Monkey!

    If he were using the toilet I wouldn’t care how often he requested to make the trip but Friday’s note said that he’s “becoming more comfortable with the toilet” which tells me he is not using it.

    We need to follow up on that comment. He loves nothing more than to flush a toilet and uses them even in public restrooms. He’s also used that particular toilet before (last year) so…yeah, he’s manipulating them I would guess, lol.
