Scatological Beginner’s Luck
LEO POOPED IN THE POTTY.
No, I’m not kidding, hallucinating, or delusional. He really did!
We decided to start potty training a little early, because we heard that even though it takes longer in the number of months to train, it can still get you out of diapers earlier. So, we got Leo a potty yesterday at Meijer when we were grocery shopping. I did not have high hopes; I figured that we’d be practicing sitting on it until the cows came home.
According to the Baby Whisperer, you put the kid on the potty when they wake up in the morning, about 20 minutes after eating through the day, and before going to bed. At first, it is supposed to be mainly getting comfy on the seat, but if they go by accident, you are supposed to get all excited and really freak out. So we tried it.
And this morning, it worked. After breakfast, I put him on his mini toilet seat, and after a couple of minutes, he valsava-ed and plop! I didn’t even have to try to freak out, because I was so surprised!
Parenting is getting excited about poop!
