The price I get to pay to Potty Train the T-Man

Yes, the boy is 5yo.  Yes, he still wets himself.  Worse yet, he still poops himself.  We have done everything to convince him to stop doing both.

I think we finally found his currency - Radio Controled Car.  No, not a cheapy from Radio Shack, but the kind daddy races. 

Lessoned learned by K - stop teaching the boy to read on the potty - specifically your R/C Car magazines.

Last year for x-mas the big boys, S & R, each got a pretty nice R/C car.  So we're getting the same thing for the T-Man if he can continue to relieve himself in the toilet rather than his pants.

The best thing a mother could hear. . .

. . . . . I went to the boy's school on Monday to have lunch with them both (T & S).  While sitting with T and helping him and the other Kindergartener's a little boy, J, told me T was his friend.  Then a little girl next to us, I, stated she likes T and likes to help him.

Why can't they stay this naive, sweet and understanding forever?  He's accepted now, but I know that will change as they get older.

However, I'm choosing to live for the moment and relish the fact my autism spectrum/ADHD child has friends.
