Parental Duties Call

>> Tuesday, April 19, 2005

I have been very busy lately with a very important job. I am the Lead Potty-Trainer in residence. My 3 year old is deathly afraid of p.o.o.p.i.n.g on the potty. He has decided he WILL NOT go in his pull-up anymore. GREAT! He also doesn't want to go on the potty. Because it HURTS. He waits until he absolutely CANNOT hold it any longer, then he cries the entire time. I have tried plying him with graham crackers, fresh fruit, prune juice...he's a picky little guy & refuses most of the time.

This morning, he was whining and walking bow-legged at the Y. The childrens' room ladies said he had done this off & on for the hour he was there. I knew immediately what the problem was. We arrived home at 10:30 AM, and he told me he needed to go potty. We went & sat for about 15 minutes, and he refused to do the duty (he did p.e.e., however). Repeat this every 10 minutes until 12:45 PM. FINALLY!

I don't mean to complain, but I would prefer to be cleaning or doing laundry instead of sitting with my crying 3 year old in the bathroom. He declared it did not hurt this time, so I am hoping we have crossed over the bridge. Time will tell.

He was very proud of himself, and he loves to tell people what he's learning. We called Daddy at work for some more praise. We'll continue with the praising for a job well done, and keep our fingers crossed.

If I am absent for long periods, just know I am working hard!
