Potty Training 101
Friday, December 01, 2006

Friend: I had a rough time training my son. How was Kendell?
Me: Meeeh..he wasn't so bad.
Friend: Lord when my son was finally trained, I then had to train him to lift the lid!
Me: Oh no kidding! Me too. Only with Kendell it wasn't just the lid that got wet, it was the shower stall, the corner, the cat in the hallway outside...
Friend:((snort)) whatever
Me: Ha, seriously. I went out on our apartment balcony one day to find him watering the plants down below and the neighbor across the courtyard on the floor of her balcony laughing so hard she was crying.
Friend:Ahhh, an exhibitionist....
Me:That's not the worse of it. I swear before I could get him to lift the lid he would pee all over the seat. VERY fun to go sit down and sit in someone else's pee ((eye roll))
Friend: How did you break him of it?
Pause
Me: I told him if I ever sat down in his pee again he would have to clean the seat up...with his tongue.
Friend: ((staring at me, mouth hanging open))
Me: What?? It worked!

Bribery and threats....a mother's greatest weapons.

Oh I am sure Kendall is going to appreciate this post for the rest of his life. It is like a picture a mom would take of her naked baby and then threatening to show her pre-teen's boyfriend.

Oh, the joys of raising boys. I once woke up to find Doodlebug peeing in the kitchen garbage. He was half-asleep and when I asked him what he was doing, he completely woke up and immediately started crying, turned and peed in every direction.

Do you KNOW how difficult it is to pull a wet 13-gallon Glad trash bag out of a green rectangular Rubbermaid garbage can? I seriously thought I was going to have to poke holes in the bottom of the can to release the suction (and then go buy a new can).

HA!! Mine was no trouble to potty train, but somewhere along the way he picked up the habit of wiping poop on the bathroom cabinet. I'm really not sure what that's about...

OMG Funny! If I ever have a little boy, I will remember what I've read here today to help stop him if he pees on the seat!
