I have a question for you…
What do you get when you mix a 2 year old with a bowl of popcorn, a cup of juice and Oprah and stick him on the potty???…..
That was actually the 2nd time on the potty yesterday and his 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th pee. He kept pushing it out and saying “yay pee pee”. Earlier in the day I sat him on the potty with a cup full of raisins and he finally peed for the first time. My heart was warm and proud. Now we just need him to want to go to the potty every time he pees. I have a feeling that he’s kind of in a perpetual state of peeing. Kinda just squirts it out here and there.
Unfortunately peeing ONLY in the potty isn’t something he understands as I found out last night after this bath.
He stood naked on the carpet and said “YAY PEE PEE” as he deposited his urine on my floor. He looked very confused to get scolded as opposed to being praised. After I cleaned it up I had to run upstairs to get some diapers and from below I heard my niece Ali say “no Silas no no, in the potty!!” and my proud toddler saying, once again, “YAY PEE PEE!!”. No more running around nude for a while.
This morning he asked to sit on the potty so down came his pants and, much to my horror, there was poo in there. The poo was now down his legs and most likely in areas that a few wipes were not going to be able to handle. So into the shower he went. And, when you put one kid in the shower, the other cries our of jealousy, so into the shower the other one went…he had even created his own poopy bum (which again I hadn’t noticed). It’s always fun to keep your little one from trying to pick up and eat his own feces as they try and make their way down to the drain. Needless to say I’ll be checking for poops before pulling down pants from now on.
