12 years ago I was a naive mom who thought that potty training was a breeze. My daughter had figured out the whole pee pee on the potty in a matter of two days and I never looked back. I was the potty training master. I would give advice like it was my J-O-B. Potty training was so easy, what was everyone fussing over?
Funny thing about parenting. Just when you think you are doing it right, BAM!! The kids throw a curveball to bring you right back to reality.
My middle daughter was a nightmare to potty train. I thought to myself, she is the hardest kid to potty train in the history of the world. No kid will ever be as difficult as her.
BAM! Oh naive mama, when will you ever learn?!
Turns out my twins are the hardest kids in the world to potty train. Like we are talking when everyone says they won’t be in pull ups forever, but I don’t actually know that to be true. They may actually go to College in their pull ups.
Each morning I remind myself to show them (and me) some grace but by the end of the day I sound like a crazy person. The things that come out of a parents mouth while potty training are seriously some of the weirdest statements ever spoken.
Here are just a few Things You Say When Potty Training…..
Where’s the Lysol?
Honey, come look at this.
The dog can’t help you poop in the potty, he doesn’t need to be in your lap.
Is that timer for dinner or the potty?
Watch how Daddy does it.
No you can’t poop in the backyard like the dog.
Do you need mommy to sing the poo poo song?
What’s that smell?
Potty training is not for the faint of heart. But I will continue to power through because everyone assures me that one day it will “click”.
What’s the weirdest thing you have ever said while potty training your kiddos?
