    When is it a potty training setback and when is he just a pain in my ass?

    August 8, 2007

    I went to the bathroom this morning.  I know.  Where do I ever find the time?  I’d like it noted however, that I made bacon, eggs and toast for the men in the family before I indulged myself so outrageously by taking 15 seconds to go to the bathroom.

     During that clearly-way-too-long 15 seconds, I heard my son pound past the door.  I came around the corner and he was gone.  I looked in the living room to see if he was with his babysitter, Diego, and the couch was empty.  I had a weird feeling and turned around to look out the french doors that go out to the back porch. 

    There he was, peeing like a race horse.

    And peeing, and peeing, and peeing.

    I ran out screaming, “STOP!  STOP!”

    He stopped.  I could hear the puddle pouring through the boards and splattering on the patio below. 

    The Boy:  Peeing, Mama.
    K:  Well, stop.  (feeling like maybe I had said this 900 KABILLION times)  Where do we put our peeps?
    The Boy:  In the potty, Mama.
    K:  Is this the potty?
    The Boy:  (looking at me like I was an idiot)  NO, MAMA.  This the Porch.
    K:  Alrighty then.  Do you think we can take this party inside to the potty?
    The Boy:  But I go already, Mama.

    Yes, you did.  Maybe this is better than cleaning up puddles of urine around the can everyday?

      I love the part about his babysitter … and that he looked at you like you were stupid when you asked if that was the potty. Good times.

      Hey, I’d prefer spraying off the porch to shampooing carpets ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.

      […] Usually when I see a list like this, I think “for this I got a master’s degree.” Today it all felt very good and purposeful. And at least I didn’t have to deal with this…! […]
