A step in the right direction

Today around 11 Dean requested underwear. I always let him try, but he often has accidents when he's doing something fun and doesn't want to stop, or when I put Walt down for a nap. He did SO well today. He didn't take a nap, but he legitimately went to the bathroom 4 times during his quiet time and probably another 4 or 5 times the rest of the day. He was completely dry from 11-5!! Around 4:45 he had A LOT to drink and we were outside doing something fun. I asked him if he needed to go potty around 5 and he said no, but not a minute later he had an accident. And then another one not to long after that. So, under those circumstances I should probably just take him rather than ask him. But this was all initiated by him, so I was happy. Not there yet, but it really felt like progress.

Nice! Good luck on getting the rest of the way there. I was totally frustrated with the progress Josh was making for about a month and a half, then I discovered that fruit snacks were the bribe that worked for him. Once they catch on, it is GREAT!
