Potty training update

So today, the two year old tried to help me out by flushing his own soiled underwear down the toilet. "I cleaned it up myself, Mommy." He announced this to me, naked, with a hand full of baby wipes desperately trying to clean off his own excrement. The order of events from my point of view was:

  • Ty entering the office covered in poo (as Mike Rowe would say)
  • Following him upstairs to discover bum marks all over the carpet in his room
  • I then asked him where he put his dirty underwear, and that was when I was led to the toilet, neatly flushed but with the telltale marks all over the white porcelain that the child had indeed flushed his Mr. Incredible underoos.

I'm with Annie, how do you do it? There must be a special place in heaven for mommies who have been given a Tennyson!

oohhh...I'm cringing right now. These are times for deep breathing and perspective :) Did they really go down? Is your toilet okay?

Well I guess the good news is that he seems to be trying to get into the potty training mode. Im so sorry Kate!

Perhaps you and Nana got the message of "don't stick anything in the potty!" across too well when he was younger...
