Not long ago I attended a house party. My, how the definition of house party has changed…
Once upon a time a house party meant loud bumping music, hundreds of people crammed into a basement or backyard, $5 for a red solo cup, and the steady flow of a bottomless keg.
This particular house party was a little different. This party was to introduce our little ones to the potty. Say what. No bumping music? No solo cups? No keg? Try explaining this to 21-year-old-Desirée.
Currently, Marcus uses the potty right before he hops in the bath. We hold the little man up to the toilet and if/when he pees we dance and clap and cheer like he's just won the Nobel Prize. Nine times out of 10 he will actually pee. I'm guessing this production is mostly so he can flush the toilet. He would flush toilets all day long if allowed.
With that said, I'm asking for some serious potty tips (specifically for little boys).
Do I do the three-day-no-pants method? Does that mean I'm going to be wiping up pee all day long? Do I buy pull-ups?
Do I need one of those little toilets for him, or can he just use the regular one?
What do I do for over nights and nap times?
What do you do when you need to run errands? Will I be confined to our house until this whole thing is mastered?
What worked for you?
And last, but certainly not least, what do I call #2? I.can.not.say.the."p".word. Cannot.
I am all ears!
