Completely not sure what to do here...

We are desperately trying to Potty Train Will. He refuses to poop in the toilet though. Completely stubborn.
I can sit him on the toilet every 15 minutes and still he will go in his underwear. He will Pee, won't poop. When I ask him where we are supposed to Poop, he tells me in the Potty. He can re-iterate but he still just don't do it.

Finally after weeks of desperation, I called Momma crying. I just don't know what to do. She said if he is able to tell me where to go, and has been using the bathroom, maybe its time to start punishing him for pooping in his underwear. I tried it.

Now he is afraid to tell me when when he has an accident. We just asked him if he had to go and he completely started freaking out on us. I had to drag him in there. Turns out he pooped.

I am completely lost as to what I should do, and now I feel awful.

Just Another Day in Paradise

Well its 11 am. I couldn't fall asleep last night until after 2 and then from 2-7 I was up and down all night coughing- No Hacking out a lung. At 7 when my now 3 year old woke up I gave up trying to sleep. Something good came out of it. He told me he had to potty (That is a BIG thing for us) About 9:00 my husband couldn't sleep anymore so he stayed up with will and let me have a nap. Now its 11, we've all eaten, George is on the Xbox. Will is racing cars on his Hot Wheels track. The Cat is attacking the cars (She also left me some wrapping paper in the hallway for a present). None of us are dressed. Just another day in Paradise here. Its nice just to relax and be us for a while.

Cutting the TV off from my son daily is not an easy thing to do! I love him dearly, but I think a 3 year old should spend more time playing then on the TV. I am thinking that once G, goes back to work Wednesday, there will be no TV at all in the house until my son can handle the responsiblity of playing. I do play with him, but he thinks if the TV is not on I am to play with him 100% of the time and that is not the case.

*Sighs* I wish he had some body to play with.

Any tips?
