Jr. used the toilet today! I was filling up the tub and he said "poop" so I put him on the toilet and he pooped. (He also pooped a lot more in the tub later, but that's beside the point, right?) Potty training is going to be lots of fun. Below is an excerpt from a chat between Josh and me from a couple of months ago to show just how fun it can be.
11:49 AM me: k so here's the story
jr is in the bathtub
I turn and see that he's standing up
so I think "oh, maybe he just peed" oh well.
I turn back and continue what I'm doing
the next time I look, jr has pooped.
In about 4 inches of water.
so I'm like "aaah! in the toilet josh!"
11:51 AM and I grab him and put him on the toilet
so he's sitting there and nothing's happening, so I'm like "okay are you done?"
and I move him.
which is right when the poop comes out and smears all over the toilet.
so I put him back on in a different spot and hold him there for quite a while
finally, I figure he's done
so I take him off.
11:52 AM So I try and wipe his bum a little
next thing I know, he's peeing all over my feet
I'm like "sick, junes!"
but I can't just wash off my feet because there's major poop in the tub which hasn't finished draining
11:53 AM so I finally gather up the poop in the tub with some toilet paper and flush it in the toilet
and jump in the tub to wash off my feet so I can go get some wipes
sometime during all of this, jr. pooped again
this time on the bathroom floor
and stepped in it.
so I had to put him back in the tub to wash off his feet
11:54 AM I finally got my feet washed off, got his feet washed off, gathered him in a (now poopy) towel
wiped his bum with a wipe and put a diaper on him
this whole time he's being super cute and obedient and innocent so there's no possible way I can be mad at him
12:03 PM Joshua: oh man
i didn't laugh
12:04 PM me: did you laugh?
tell the truth.
Joshua: ...yesi kept thinking you were done
and then you kept going
12:06 PM I kept thinking jr was done pooping.
funny how not a bit of that poop made it into the toilet
except for the parts I wiped up
