Time for a Potty Break

Monday, February 10th, 2014

We had recently potty trained our son. One day, I was in the car with him on the way home when he said in an urgent voice, “I have to pee-pee!” We were only a few miles away from our destination, so I asked, “Can you hold it until we get home?” He looked down and said with alarm, “No, Mommy, my hands will get wet!”

family campingWe arrived at our camping site after a long drive and noticed a sign that read, “Dumping Fee: $3,” for disposing of garbage after camping. My daughter then asked if I had any money. When I asked why she needed it, she said, “Because I really need to use the potty.”

girl brushing teeth with momI was trying to convince my daughter to brush her teeth first thing in the morning, so I asked her what she sees Mommy and Daddy do as soon as they wake up. She said, ” Poo-poo”.
