Potty Humor

I have a two year old. Sooner or later we were going to have to talk about the potty here. As we have established, Lillian talks without ceasing and follows us around pretty much everywhere. Here are a few humorous potty moments from the last couple of days.

Wednesday I was in the bathroom going number 1 and Lillian was chatting it up with me. She left and before I finished washing my hands she was back with two M&Ms. "Here you go mama, good job."

Today, we were at the store. She says she has to go to the bathroom. Lillian loves public restrooms. She thinks that the loud flushes are really cool. We went four places this morning and she went to the bathroom in three of them. So she has to go to the bathroom... I pick her up only to discover that she has already pooped in her pants. Off to the bathroom. Mind you other people are in the bathroom. She is not quiet.

L: Mama, I pooped in my Dora panties?
M: Yes, Lillian
L: You need to poop mama.
M: No, Lillian
L: Just pee?
M: Yes
L: You hear somebody mama?
M: Yes there is another lady in the bathroom.
L: Is she pooping mama?
M: I don't know Lillian. Lets not talk about it.
L: She's just peeing?
L: Good job mama!

I suppose I need to be humbled or humilated or something.

That's hilarious! If only I had two M&M's for everytime I peed! What's the prize for pooping? (in the toilet, I mean)

Who needs a therapist when you have Melanie's blog? Be prepared: rewards are still big at our house. Miller has a treat jar that he self-regulates. All Christmas, Easter, birthday party and other misc candy goes there. (Such a nerd!) The treat jar started at 2.5 yrs. At 5 years old, he now believes he qualifies for his own reward system when he poops, flushes, and washes his hands unassisted.
