...You've been warned!
Now, with learning to go potty comes a very concentrated study of one's own body. All of those parts that were once covered in diapers and pants are now available for close inspection. Let me just say that he loves his "winkie" so much. It's a nifty little item to have, you know? When you jump on the bed, it jumps with you. It feels kinda cool, too... squishy. Not like any other body part! Oh, and it gets the neatest reaction out of a big brother when you say, "Hey Brubber, you wanna see my winkie? Tee-hee-hee!" The power he has! LOL
|Even in his sleep!|
Another "cool" thing about going potty is you can see what has come out of your body. With diapers, you lay there while someone wipes away the mess and then whisks away the pee and poop. Little Guy's newest thing is to inspect his poops. "Look, Mama! A little wormie poop!" He's also had , "Three poops! A great big daddy poop, a mommy poop, and a little tiny baby poop!" He MUST check out every single bowel movement and announce what it looks like. We've had bunny rabbits, cookies, and even a monster truck appear in his potty. He also notes the color. Yeah, it's always brown. But he feels he needs to let me know that it's brown this time, too! Oh, and it's stinky, too. He never forgets to ask me if I'd like to smell it - ugh!
So, while learning to go potty may be a struggle for some children and parents, it's been nothing but fun around here. Who'd have ever thought that this kind of thing could bring out such an imagination? And I think that his scientific evaluation is pretty cool, too. Just as long as he doesn't decide to see how poop feels, right?!
