My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Potty Training 101

Well, it's been a rough week. So I decided I needed to laugh, and y'all can laugh with me.

So, we're trying to potty train Sonshine. This is proving more difficult than expected. In order to help him get the idea of what it is that I want him to do. I've asked Subvet to take Sonshine with him when he needs to pee. Show him how big boys do it...all that. Well, Subvet is a little shy about this sort of thing but sportingly agreed.

So, the time came...and Dad and Son went into the bathroom for the first time to see what it's all about. I'm in the living room listening to the following conversation.
All from Subvet.

Come on, let's go tee tee like a big boy.
Geez, this is embarrassing.
Yeah, Daddy's a big boy...this is how big boys put tee tee in the potty.
I can't believe I'm doing this.
Yeah, Daddy's tee tee
HEY, DON'T DO THAT!!!
GET YOUR HANDS OUT OF THERE!!
Come and wash your hands.

Apparently Sonshine had decided to "play in Daddy's fountain"
Daddy was NOT amused.

When my DD was 4, her 5-yr-old "cousin" (too complicted) came over for a while after pre-school til his dad could come pick him up. At one point, DD and Cuz had to go potty. Cuz went first.
DD: Is that how boys do it?
Cuz: Yeah, how do girls do it?
DD demonstrated.
Cuz: Oh, yeah, that's what Mommy does.
Both leave bathroom and go back to playing.
This mommy (in the next room) breathes a sigh of relief.
