The Potty Train Has Left The Building

PottyTrainingDo you ever have something in your life that you know you should do but you keep putting it off and have this overwhelming feeling it is going to be the worst thing possible? The funny thing is that when you actually suck it up and do it it is not near as bad as you thought it would be.

Potty training my youngest was like that for me. I was dreading it like the plague. Little did I know, orange Mike and Ikes and Paw Patrol undies would get my cutie using the potty like a champ!

I also find it funny how amazed by this new skill I am. I find myself in awe the first few days like she deserves a Pulitzer prize or something instead of the fact that she is just sitting on the porcelain throne like we all do daily.

Anyone who knows me knows I can get a little overenthusiastic. potty training is no exception I am like Richard Simmons on crack.  I probably look like I am literally going to explode when my child first uses the potty. I just want them to be proud of themselves, but I may be overdoing it. We came up with a song to sing and because it’s summer and all of my creative juices are dried out. Her song song went like this, “I went Pee hip hip hooray, I went Pee hip hip Hooray.” Yeah, probably not going to win a Grammy for that one. She loved the song and still sings it even when we are in public restrooms. Hilarious.

After about a week she was pretty much accident free. If I would have known it was going to be this easy I would have done this a lot sooner. You would think I would know have learned that lesson by now.

Nope, I most definitely have not.

    This is wonderful! We have a lot of parents at our center who have a hard time potty training their kids. I’ll have to share this with them. It will be a great resource.

    I remember when she was just a tiny baby. Isn’t it amazing how quickly they grow?
