The Potty Diaries: Day 3 in Potty Prison

Here we are on Day 3 of potty training lock down and it is going O.K.  It really isn't that bad, but I am feeling a little like a prisoner in my own home.  I'm thinking of venturing out to the driveway and maybe for a SHORT walk with the kiddos later today.  Maybe.  Saturday and Sunday were fine, with Saturday definitely a learning day with many accidents and Sunday getting better.  I also had a partner for those days and today I am flying solo with a crawling 8 month old maniac (no, really, he is a maniac) and a 1/2 naked toddler.  Sound fun? 

Today really hasn't been awful, although there were moments of horror...which I will not go into for the sake of decency, but let's just say I have played my part in keeping Clorox wipes in business.  Cam seems to be catching on and when he isn't too distracted, he does pretty darn well.  I make sure to give him plenty of props, dances and hugs and he is proud of himself when he does the deed in the proper place.  He is also EXHAUSTED, which leads me to believe that his brain is working overtime processing all of these changes and some of it is sinking in...he is typically better at it after rest (morning and after nap).  After nap today I myself was coming out of the bathroom to find him sitting on his little potty peeing all by himself.  SUCCESS!  He must have thought we won the lottery or something with the joy I was oozing, but instead of joining in the hype he simply asked for Dora and some fishies (goldfish) and turned back to his blocks.

I watched the Kardashians during nap and here is a new word that Kim came up with, although I think she thought it was actually a word, "precautious."  Using it in a sentence, "We want to know what you are planning on doing with Mason if you die because we are being precautious."  Ahh, the Kardashians.  Oh, and I forgot to blog this other prize dialogue that was featured on a different episode, but it is amazing...
Summary: Rob was being a you know what to Scott (the whole scenario reeked of set-up) and Kim is talking to Rob about it and explains it as Rob being insecure because "his sock line hasn't come out yet."  Rob has a sock line coming out?  What?  AMAZING!  These people never cease to surprise...and keep me entertained...which explains why they are gazillionaires.

  1. One of my few - possibly only - happy memories of potty training: When my third child (in 4.5 years) was about a week into potty training, he happened to pass by the open bathroom door when I was on the toilet. He stood in the doorway listening attentively for a few minutes to be sure of what I was doing, and then starting clapping while cheering quite enthusiastically, "Good job, Mommy! You are peeing!"
