underpants! v. 4.0

After Sunday's fiasco the potty chair "disappeared" by Monday morning {it got cleaned and put into a bag which I promptly put in the trunk of our car to give back to the friend I borrowed it from}.

And after a somewhat rough start to our day, Noah succumbed to the potty seat that fits on top of the toilet. And since then we've had no problems. Except for using public washrooms; while he's a champ about being willing, how on earth do other Mothers deal with the "point your pee-pee* down!" issue? Tonight at McD's he peed on the toilet, but for the first second or two it ran straight down the front of the toilet all over his underpants and pants.
I'm wondering if standing is a better option?

Anyway, I'm proud of my little {big} guy. He's potty trained. {Daytime only. Every night he complains about having to wear a diaper, but until he wakes up dry, he's not going to sleep in underpants. Fin.}

*Funny story. So I've alternated between "penis" and "pee-pee" but apparently "penis" has stuck. We were at a friend's house the other day {a little girl} and Noah and his friend were playing with Play-Doh and stamping them into letters. He happened to make a "P" and proudly showed me: 
"Look Mom! A "P"!"
I said: "Yes! You're right. That is a "P"! What is "P" for?"
Noah: "'P' is for penis!"
Me: "Er. yes. Or peanut? polar bear? petunia?"
Good times.


  1. AHHHHH! I feel so much companionship with you. C says some of the most fantastically awkward things. And the "pointing the pee-pee" issue is tricky. But he'll get it, over time. Now I have to remind C to pay attention - he feels like a pro, and daydreams and renegade pee is everywhere!

  2. The P is for Penis is hilarious. That will definitely be me someday- I have no doubts about that!


I love hearing from you!
