Bribes

I didn't think bribing Thomas would work (he has an intersting psyche) - but I bought a Timer today. Just a cheap 1 hour timer, and I reset it after every potty break. The first time it went off, he kicked and screamed the whole time, until I broke down and said "if you can go in the potty, you can have 3 M&M's". He was instantly quiet, and got the job done, washed his hands, got his M&M's and all was well. He asked for more, and that was a small battle we had to suffer, but we gently explained that he could have more if he went in the Potty when the timer went off again. So that is the excitment of my day today.
