Quoting Supafly★:" Thank goodness I'm not alone. I really hope he'll get it back down pat again. He was doing so great. ... [snip!] ... preschool in September and I'm so worried they won't take him and I'll have to spend another whole year being a SAHM. :shock:"
No we're homeschooling. He has never pooped in the potty. Sigh. He has autism and took longer to pee train (he was 3.5) but when he got it he was done within a couple weeks. With poo he will just go wherever. Even in public. If I think he's about to poo at home I can get him to at least put on a pull up and go to the bathroom to do it. Positive step I guess?
Quoting Supafly★:" Yeah, he gets the concept. Like I said before he had it totally down pat but he regressed over New ... [snip!] ... And I can't devote the time to sit and watch his behavior when he goes between all the housework and my clingy 6 month old. "
Oh man, I forgot about kids regressing. That's going to suck if that happens to Kiki cause both SO & I work crazy shifts...and then MIL has her inbetween sometimes so we'd all have to stay on the same page....which is practically impossible.
Quoting Supafly★:" Yeah as soon as you catch the signal, put him on the potty. The hard part is it's tough to catch the ... [snip!] ... do. That's what I'm struggling with. DS isn't autistic but I think he has a memory problem. He has a speech delay and ODD too. "
No he won't sit on the potty. The one time I got to him before he pooped he held it in for 2 days. He sat on the potty for a long time and it was a huge hairy deal with no results.
Quoting Supafly★:" Can he tell you why? Did you show him how you poop? DS will sit on the potty and try if he and I both make faces and groaning sounds lol. But if nothing comes out I tell him we'll try again later. "
He says he's scared. I don't know why because he can pee sitting down.
He can tell you that he's supposed to poop on the potty.
He can tell you that if he does poop on the potty he gets ice cream and a new truck.
He knows when he has to go because he will either hide or he'll ask for a pull up.
Quoting Supafly★:" Hmm, that's tough. You can't really do much if he doesn't want to, since it'll just make everything ... [snip!] ... ass, and showed his father all by himself once. It's like he completely forgot about it at my mom's house. It's totally weird. "
Yeah regressions are hard, I'm anticipating some regression when the new baby comes..so not excited.
Quoting Tavi:" I wonder if they have those....Like "My kid takes shits in toilets" now....I could probably make one...I ... [snip!] ... make one...I HAVE to. This deserves balloons falling from the sky..dancers...Wayne Brady, 3 doors, and a god damn circus! "
If you get a white mug, write on it with a sharpie, and bake at 350 for like 20 minutes. You can decorate it with turds and balloons.

Congrats! I remember you posting about potty training troubles. Yay!
