I have been working with Devin on getting him to learn how to undress himself. This skill will be especially helpful when he decides he is finally ready to potty train (but we won't go there today). I had him try to take off his sweatsuit, diaper, and socks before his bath tonight. He was victorious and this was his reaction to each item he removed: "I actually did it!" I thought it was a riot to hear him using actually!!!
In an effort to get Devin to comply with taking the "long" nebulizer treatment tonight (both types of medicine since his asthma has been acting up) I tried to "bribe" him ahead of time with an offer of a snack afterward. I was thinking of popcorn or crackers. This was our conversation:
Devin: Can I have some chocolate?
Mommy: I don't have any chocolate, Devin.
Devin: Oh you have to get some at the store?
Mommy: Well, yes I do get it at the store.
Devin: Okay, I'll go with you to the store now Mommy.
Hmm, I wasn't thinking we would do that right now Devin!
