Call me a dork, I don't care. I am a SUCKER for minivans. I didn't realize how much I would miss our van (that we sold before we moved to Hawaii) until I didn't have it anymore. Automatic sliding doors are KEY... they make my life so much easier. Not to mention the remote liftgate, stow and go seating, cup holders galore...don't even get me going! :-) Anyway, we found a sweet deal on this Chrysler Town and Country last night at a dealership in Kailua. I'm so thrilled to rejoin the minivan club!
Keaton loves it too!

commence taking him to the potty every 15-20 minutes
9:30 – oops, peepee on floor in bedroom. Thankfully, we have wood floors, so cleanup was easy enough...
9:40 – oops, peepee on the couch – he happened to be sitting on some newspapers, so no harm done
I'm getting a little discouraged…do I really want to do this?
10:00 - Peepee in the potty! Our first success! Maybe this is not a waste of time…??
Yellow jelly bean. Clapping, hugging, kissing, praising. Keaton is all smiles. He likes this game.
10:22 - Another peepee in the potty! He started to go a little in his underwear, but then yelled for me and finished in the potty! It's working!
Purple Jelly Bean
11:00 – another peepee in the potty! This time his underpants were dry and he told me he needed to go and he went!!
Pink jelly bean
11:19 – oops, went peepee on the rug in his room while we were playing. He was able to stop himself and finish in the potty, but his shirt and underpants were soaked.
11:30 – we were drawing in his room and he told me he needed to go to the potty and did!
White jelly bean and much praising, hugging, kissing, clapping
12:00 – cranky boy, time for lunch
12:45 – still in Thomas underpants. No potties, no accidents. I think he’s tired of OJ.
Feeding him ice. Hoping I can get him to go potty before naptime.
1:10 – success again!
Orange jelly bean and more praising, kissing, hugging
1:20 – crying fit when I changed him out of his Thomas underpants into a diaper for naptime.
3:30 – woke up with dry diaper. Thomas underpants back on. Full cup of ootsy-lala
4:15 – eating snack outside and told me he had to go peepee – yes!!
Purple jelly bean
4:30 – more ice
5:30 – another success and Daddy was home to enjoy the moment!
7:00 – and another!
8:15 - one more peepee before bed - diaper and jammies on.
8:30 - Bedtime
