To anyone who ever became frustrated with toilet training (or the thought of toilet training) a small boy: take heart…you are not alone. In fact, to encourage you, I’ve made a list of some of the recent and real sentences that have come from my 3 year old son while in the other side of the bathroom door.
“Mom, I fell in the toilet again!”
“Mom, I didn’t fall in the toilet again!”
“Mom, I decided to put the toilet paper in the sink before I wiped myself.”
“Mom, why does it [body part] look like this?”
“Mom, I didn’t mean to pee all over the floor, really, I didn’t.”
“Mom, I stuck my foot in the toilet!”
“Mom, Karsten’s in here too and he just stuck his hand in the toilet!”
“Mom, yes, you really do have to take off all your clothes before you go potty.”
“Mom, I broke your magazine.”
“Mom, I broke the toilet seat.”
“Look Mom! I can hold the toilet paper with my toes.”
On a completely unrelated note, I’m thinking of writing a post on bathroom cleaners.
