Levi Funny

So, I haven't written here in about a hundred years.  I decided today that I'm going to fix that, and what better place to start than with a fun Levi story?

Lee and I are quickly becoming convinced that Levi will never be potty trained.  He'll be 4 next month.  The most recent proof came yesterday.  I bought a package of Oreos, and told Levi that he could have one every time he used the potty.  Hoping a little peer pressure would help, I also told Jonny and Gracie that they could only have an Oreo when Levi used the potty.  Levi was all gung-ho, and immediately went to the bathroom, peed in the toilet, collected his cookie, and happily passed out cookies to his brother and sister.  Good start!  I asked him if he wanted to wear underwear for the day, and he said he did.  Woohoo!

Fast forward a couple of hours.  Lee had been asking Levi if he needed to go potty about every 15 minutes.  The answer was always "nope."  After about two hours, Lee started asking Levi if he was wet, knowing he had probably peed in his pants by then.  Again, the answer was "nope."  Finally, I asked Levi if he was dry.  The answer: "nope."  Sure enough,  a quick check revealed wet pants.  *sigh*

Lee said, "Come on, Levi.  Come over here so we can put a diaper on you."  Levi walked over obediently and lay down.  As Lee was stripping him of his wet pants, Levi said, "Well, I guess I don't have to go to school now!"  (We've been telling him that he can't go to school until he wears underwear and uses the potty).

I'm pretty sure we've been out-maneuvered.
