Good Thing He's Cute ...

'Cuz smart he ain't! Now before you start commenting and criticizing me for calling my son "not smart", let me just tell you that I love his sweet, naive, laid-back, and innocent personality. But I also feel it might be a hinderance in the 'ole potty training business. Once I am done teaching VBS games this week (to over 300 kids armed with water balloons, outside, & in the heat), I am planning on potty training Zach. As a prerequisite to attending three year old preschool with his cousin Clay, he needs to master both poop and pee. I think he is going to have go "el - nudo" because when we tried one day last week as a kind of "introductory" lesson this is how it went.

Me: Do you want to try to go potty?

Zach: No mama. I already went in my Bob the Builder underwear.

Me: Oh really. Can you show me where you peed?

Zach: Sure. Follow me. (To the basement by his playskool workbench and the damp carpet in front of it.)

This will definitely be tear-free training ... 'cause he really doesn't care! :)

Hang in there! The el-nudo method worked for my two boys. However I live in the country with only family for neighbors...

boys do seem to take longer than girlies to train, huh?
