Boo just said, “I just went potty before naptime so you wouldn’t be mad at me again.”

Tell no one.

In my vast (four years *snort*) experience of parenthood, potty training is hands down the most mind explodingly frustrating task I’ve had to endure.

My son (two) will be in diapers indefinitely as a result!

@Annie – The weird thing is that potty training for us was bizarrely easy. (After months of sleep issues we were expecting a struggle; it took maybe four hours, with occasional accidents for maybe a week.) The “mad” she was referring to was one when she climbed into her bed and peed on purpose for reasons unrelated to the potty — she was frustrated about having to take a nap.

This reminds me of when MsEldest went missing in the supermarket and I was beside myself. I finally found her hiding behind a pallet of cereal. I took her arm and pulled her out and she started yelling “Don’t beat me! Don’t beat me!” at the top of her lungs.

What the…? I’d never laid a hand on her, but was sorely tempted at that point! LOL

THE single most embarrassing moment of my life!

I would have thought not having to sleep in a smelly bed would have been a good enough reason to go potty. Yikes I have a lot to learn about parenting.

@orlund – OK, you define potty the way I used to — as “number 2.” (Wait, now — this blog has an adult rating already, let’s just say “crap.”)

But I’ve been schooled that in the kid world these days, “potty” is “the bathroom” — “poop” is crap and “pee” is, well, pee.

Potty be not poop.

@Xbox4NappyRash – I know. Just wait until she discovers what power she has.
