Henry: Mama! I gotta go pee-pee!!
Me: OK, Henry. Go to the bathroom.
(Henry keeps hopping from one foot to the other, not making any move towards the bathroom).
Henry: I tell Mama & Dada I gotta go pee-pee!
Me: Yes, you did!! NOW GO TO THE BATHROOM QUICK BEFORE YOU DON"T MAKE IT!
I love that he's so proud of mastering step 1, he forgets what to do next.
He's so funny... when I'm not cleaning up urine-soaked rugs.
He's got the basics down, now trying to master the finer points of realizing when he has to go. We tried putting him on a schedule for going but that was putting too much pressure on him so we stopped. Even though we just wanted him to just go to the bathroom and try and it was OK if he didn't have to go. It became a battle of wills and he was getting really worked up about potty training so we backed off.
