Potty Training Day 10: A One Act


It's day 10 and counting. Bob’s got the pee pee in the potty thing down. He lets us know when he’s got to go. He occasionally checks in to let us know when he doesn’t have to go, just to keep us in the pee pee loop. He will tell people behind us in line at Von's, "I'm dry!" He has even conquered his fear of public restrooms. (We’re still working on mine.) Lots of progress in the pees department, yet poops in the potty, are proving to be more elusive.


DAY 10
(4:15 PM. BOB and our dog DAISY are playing in the backyard. I enter the backyard from the house.)


ME
Hi guys. What are you doing?


BOB
(Running to greet ME)
Mama! I had a poo poo outside!


ME
You did? Oh no. Where did you do that?


BOB
(points to a small smear on the concrete)
Here!


ME
There's nothing there. Where's your poo poo?


BOB
It's in Daisy's tummy!

  2. First off, big ups to Bob! keep up the good work!

    second, the name Von's always does something to me,it never seemed like an exotic name when I was growing up in southern Cal, but now it's just one of those odd but fun names I want to say for the sake of saying.

    thirdly (not turdly), the last part of this post about Daisy and Bob wasn't exactly how I was hoping to enjoy my morning coffee, but a laugh all the same.
