Diaper Days

chibiguri has for some time been quite responsible when it comes to using the toilet for urinating. However, he has not been as successful in managing to make it in time for his bowel movements. The last time I went to his favorite store with him, we purchased a little wooden train for him, and i told him that when he successfully went to the toilet for his bowel movemebnts, he would receive this as a present. He has been longing for this, but was not able to successfully perform up to this time.

During our Saturday, he had some issues and told me that he needed to go to the toilet. He was highly uncomfortable, and tried a number of times to go, even telling me that he needed to go, but was unable at first to succeed. After Amaguri got home, she helped and he eventually made a massive bowel movement- i swear it was a least a foot long! No wonder he was so uncomfortable.

However, this bowel movement had the added effect of opening his eyes as to the need of using the toilet when he does a bowel movement. I had to work on Sunday, but when i got home, Amaguri informed me that for the second time in a row, chibiguri had told her when he needed to go do a bowel movement- and when he got to the toilet, he did it. So he did receive his train as a present.

The upshot is that it appears that chibiguri has just about succeeded in becoming toilet-trained. he still occasionally has accidents, but he seems to have mastered the idea that when he needs to go, he needs to do it in the bathroom. As a result, I suspect that his diaper days are soon to end. We ought what I suspect will be his last box of diapers this past weekend over at Costco, and I for one, am looking forward to the end of the diaper days. Congratulations to chibiguri!
