I can’t believe we have finally made it to this point. I thought we still had some time. I figured we would wait until we she was three. Can you believe she came to us and said she was ready? She is growing up too fast and I am afraid I am not going to keep. I hope I can do this and hope this is not going to get messy. Potty training is never easy.
These were all the thing going through my head this past weekend as we started potty training K-Dub. She did come up to my wife and I and told us she wanted to learn. It just feels like yesterday she said her first word and now she wants to use the toilet? Being a dad has always been a job that made me constantly teach my child different things like what sounds do animals make and how to dance but I don’t know if she would get this.
That Saturday morning started like any other. With a lot of coffee and Cutious George we got ready to tackle the day as a family. We headed to Target and let K-Dub pick out two pairs of “big girl” underwear. She of course chose Minnie and Doc McStuffins but I am about 100% sure that if they had some with Curious George she would have gotten some.
When we arrived home we changed K-Dub in her new underwear and gave her a long talk about going to the potty and the importance of telling Mommy and Daddy when she had to go. As we sat there and watched some television I happened to look over and saw that she had went pee in her underwear. I told her it was ok and changed her. After about thirty minutes she came to me and said she had to go. I took her to the potty and SHE WENT!!!
The rest of the weekend we were on a parenting high. K-Dub had a couple of more accidents but for the most part got potty training down pat. She still has issues going poo but we are working on it. She went to the potty at a public toilet. I am very proud of her but not in a my kid is the best and your sucks kind of way. I just think that every parent needs to brag on their kid every once in a while. I hope she keeps this up!
