The Mommy Escapades: Potty Training


There a lot of funny things that happen to me as a mother that I decided to start a little mini-blogging-series called The Mommy Escapades. Cheesy? Probably, but it will be fun to document the little things my kids do that make it totally worth it (or totally exasperating) to be a Mommy.

I decided to start this little series this morning due to a little mishap we had in the bathroom. Cade has been potty training for about three weeks, and has really been doing a good job. We are only down to changing his underwear about 3-4 times a day. Before we easily went through all of his underwear every day, which totals 12. He really has trouble going poo in the toilet. But I understand that is normal.

Anyway, this morning I was getting Cade ready for preschool and he said he needed to go potty. I told him to go and as he is sitting on the potty chair he is calling for me to come watch him go pee pee. As I walk in he lifts the hand that is pointing his pee pee into the potty to wave hi. In order to demonstrate what happened next I want you to imagine a hose that is on at a pretty high water pressure. What happens if you let the hose go? It swings around wherever it wants, spraying everything in it's path! Yes, this is what happened. Urine was everywhere. Myla had followed me into the bathroom because it is the highlight of her day to grab the toilet brush and put it in her mouth while Mommy is preoccupied with Cade and the potty. Then she likes to dip it in the toilet and run it through her hair. Anyway, Cade had thoroughly soaked my legs, Myla, the bathroom floor, and even managed to get it on the mirror! What does he do? He laughs. Hysterically. Which makes Myla laugh. Which makes me laugh.

Oh potty training. When will it be over?

Oh my...that is hilarious!! Totally cracked me up. I have had my potty training adventures with Livvy but nothing quite THAT hilarious! And what is it with baby girls and their desire to play with the toilet brush? Eeewwww!

That is too funny! I can definitely picture that one as Brigham has done that before but he has to sit backwards on the toilet like it's a horse so then it's just the lid that gets the drenching. You'll be in heaven once Cade gets it the potty training down 100%. For some reason Brigham basically did it all on his own overnight, and is even potty trained at night time too. Very strange I tell ya!

How great that you were laughing...you have such a great attitude. I hear you loud and clear, about the potty training.

The Earls

I hear you too! Dono's getting a lot better now, but we had our own spray downs. Especially when he learned to pee standing up. I hope they learn quick!

The Blakes

I'm glad you can find the humor in it all. It sounds like a frustrating phrase! Good think you're so patient!

Hi, I meant to tell you...I love your header on your blog. How did you do that--scrap and scan?
When we were potty training Liam, we always kept lots of cornstarch on hand for accidents on the carpet. Don't know if you've heard that tip before, but we couldn't live without it for a while.

That is too stinkin funny! I guess the best option is to laugh when it's such a disaster! I love that story. Good luck with the potty training! It's a lot of work, I understand. :)
