Place Butt With Caution

We are on Day Three of Potty Training, (I know, I know, she's 3 and should be able to do this all herself by now but I am lazy so shut up,) and so far it is mostly good. In fact, we ventured beyond the walls of our home today and only had 1 accident!

On Day One, we just vegged out and set the timer for every 15 minutes to visit our new porcelin best friend. But, sometimes the timer would go off and Mommy would be doing something else and would forget to reset it or, or, know the drill.

I was residing in that state of distraction when I was suddenly brought back to reality by Nathan who jumped up from his seat at the table (where a fierce battle for the Empire was being waged between Anakin Skywalker, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Luke's best buddy Biggs) and ran up the stairs hollering "Gross! Disgusting! Mooooom!"

I was trying to figure out what was going on when I heard more Toddler Expletives come from the upstairs bathroom, "It got all the way onto my underwear! Gross! Blech! This is dis-GUS-ting!"

"Nathan, what happened?"

"Lucy went potty on the chair and I SAT IN IT!"

"Lucy, did you go potty in the chair?"

My Sweet Innocent looked up from her Strawberry Shortcake Sticker book and delightfully replied, "Yes Mommy. Right there, in Nathan's chair." She lowered her head and went back to her stickers.

Well, what do you say to that?


  1. LOL!! TOO funny! BTW, Joshua will be 3 in March, and he wants NOTHING to do with the potty! So, you are doing much better then I am. :) Good Luck!

  2. OOh, gross, yuck!

    I have a feeling you'll be hearing stories like this from our camp in thenext few months- Ashleigh turns three in APrila nd we are "starting" then. Ugh.

  3. That picture of Lucy should be blown up into a poster in your house! Gorgeous and captures the essence of her age. This is heather f

  4. So this must also mean that next time I babysit Lucy I need to be careful where I put my tushy down too!

  5. You know, it's Lucy--you should AWLAYS be careful where you sit when she's around! ;)

  6. I can laugh... only because I'm not coming to visit your house any time soon.

  7. This so makes me laugh! Silly Goose!

  8. maybe..just's Little Sister Payback...maybe she's an evil genius.

  9. You may have hit the nail on the head with that one, Sooz!!
