Potty Mouth

Well not mouth but maybe foot.

Nathan is doing so well with potty training. I'm impressed. He's had 1 accident in the last 3 days, and even that was a little one that barely soaked his undies enough that his pants were still dry. He's even had is inaugural first pee outside so now we can stay longer at the playground.

He's also gotten more adventurous with the toilet. He prefers to pee standing up (thanks to our little looster) which is great. But then for some reason this weekend, the thought that after he peed it might be fun to 'wash' his feet in the toilet; and not just once, but twice. Seriously! The first time he had socks on too (I got to clean the wet footprints that led from the bathroom to the living room). The next time I caught him in the act and I think my reaction really scared him so it hasn't happened again.

On Sunday he upped it a notch. He had just pooped, I wiped, he flushed and since I have the kidswitch installed, he likes to turn out the light.  So I went to check on what kind of trouble Corwyn was getting into. Um yeah. A couple minutes later, there he was, beside me saying 'Monkey is wet'. Wet? Soaked is more like it, trailing water the entire way. The only good thing is that the toilet was flushed first. Small consolation, but I'll take it. Into the wash monkey went (and when I could sneak it away from him, Corwyn's went in too - he chews the tail so much that the monkey is often rank).

Ah well.

This morning, Nathan woke up dry and didn't even run when he said "Pee. Mommy come, hurry mommy." That was a first and I'm sure a bit of a fluke but I'll take it as a good sign. I don't expect overnight dryness for quite a while so I put him a pullup at night. I wont complain if this is a trend though.

Corwyn is still not ready, although we talk about it a lot and he will sometimes even sit on the toilet or potty with no clothes (rarely but sometimes). I'm hoping to use the 3 day weekend with Nov 11 to make the move with him. I'd love to start the new year with no diapers at all. Wow.

Enjoy the picture. It's so hard to get potty pictures that don't include boy bits. Check out the little looster too - its so easy for him to get on and off himself now.

I'm so glad they are doing well.
At least he is washing his feet :)
My neighbor growing up caught her son dipping his cookies in the toilet and eating them.

The toilet bowl is such a tempting place for more than one kind of little monkey! Glad to hear things are going well!

Thanks for commenting on my blog!!

That looster thing is awesome! Where did you get it? And isn't pottying a joy? :) I'm glad my Maya hasn't thought of getting in the toilet. Please don't let her know about this. :) But she does like to put her face REALLY close to the seat when she flushes (at school) to feel the breeze. So gross.
