Frustration with the Potty

Three days in a row, Brian has had NO potty accidents- and on top of that, all of his bathroom trips have been completely self-initiated- including two BMs!! Excellent news- I've been so proud of him! So excited, hoping this might be the end of our, what, it must be around 14 months now, of potty training.

Then tonight, he went upstairs when I said it was time for bed, I was a few minutes behind him as I helped Corbin clean up all his crayons and markers- came upstairs, and found him naked, lying on his bed in a puddle of his pee. So Friday, Saturday, and all of today, accident-free- only for him to pee in his bed, during two minutes of not being supervised, in the room RIGHT next door to the bathroom. He was lying there, rolling in it, laughing. Oh, and on top of everything, he removed his pajamas before doing the afore-mentioned deed.

At this point, I scolded him. In the past, I haven't really scolded for potty accidents- instead just a firm NO and having him help clean up- but I have to admit, I feel like I'm up to "there" with it- just knowing that he can do it but doesn't?

I wish I could just know what is going on in that little head of his.

Aww poor guy...they do revert sometimes, Aurora was potty trained for months and then all the sudden has some accidents in her bed. We just cleaned her up and moved on and she got past it after a couple of weeks. Hopefully this won't last long!

(((HUGS))) about the potty accidents!
As far as my MPM...I've never made much in the crock pot either, mine was a Christmas gift a few years ago, at that point the only thing I would make in it was BBQ meatballs for parties. I love the thing and it DOES make my life eaiser...so I need to fine more recipes and use the dang thing more lol. Maybe once a week I'll try a new crock pot recipe...this week it's the chicken noodle soup.
As for the ribs, the beans are seperate, it's a side dish, and they come from a can lol. The ribs, all I did was buy a couple slabs of ribs and poor some BBQ sauce over them and let them simmer for 6 hours, they were falling off the bone tender they were sooooo good! This time I'm gonna have to buy more cuz we scarffed them down so fast no one got enough lol!
