That’s the last line of Alex’s favorite book right now. What book is it, you ask? It’s the potty book that we’ve been reading for several weeks now. Tonight, Alex was running around diaper-less for a few minutes, as often happens between getting off his diaper and getting on the pull-up at night. Suddenly he stopped, looked down and seems to be concentrating. Just as I said “Don’t pee on the floor”, I saw the pee starting to come out. So then I said “Stop”, which he actually did! Then I said, “Let’s try something new.”, and led him into the bathroom. I picked him up and balanced him on the toilet (since the potty chair is not actually set up in there yet). “OK. Now you can go pee in the potty”. He looked down and concentrated real hard, and he went pee in the potty for the very first time! Took a few starts and stops, but after a few minutes, it was obvious he was done. I made sure he knew how proud of him I was. Then he flushed the toilet and we went to get his pull-up on.
Thursday morning I’ll be getting the second potty chair out of the attic and getting it in the bathroom. I’d do it sooner, but we won’t be home tomorrow night anyway.
