Riding a Big Boy Bike

Well, I think our potty training method worked!  Aside from the occasional not-making-it-on-time's, Lucas still takes himself to the potty (and he's dry all night... all 12 hours... no, I can't tell you how we did that... it just happened...).

Lucas has been asking for about a month now if he can go to school (not exactly sure where the idea came from... maybe PBS's Sid the Science Kid?).  We told Lucas that only kids who knew how to use the potty were allowed to go to school (as far as we knew, anyway...).  We made a promise that if he learned to use the potty, we would find a school for him.  To make the deal even sweeter, we promised to upgrade his tricycle for a "big boy bike," complete with training wheels.

While it wasn't until a month later when we got up the guts to put him through our own version of potty-training boot camp, he earned both of his rewards.  Starting this Friday, we will have him in a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) program at a nearby church.  A few days after "boot camp," we bought him a big boy bike.  He loves it!

To celebrate, Lucas got to pick his favorite restaurant... the "Pancake Restaurant."

Then, let him pick out his "Big Boy Bike"...

Finally, practice makes perfect... (don't worry too much...I realized pretty quickly that he needed his helmet on)
