Potty Training Failure
Seger walks around naked lately because its the only way he thinks about using the toilette. Pee only at this point.
Yesterday he said ‘my butt hurts’ while reaching around to his butt making a face that looked like his butt hurt. So, I suggested pooping which he’s only done once accidentally on the potty. He declined. I said (embarrassingly) ‘ill let you watch Yo Gabba Gabba while you try’. He agreed.
He graciously sat down on the potty and the hurt butt face immediately went away so I was very sure It was going to be a success. I turned on his show that he only gets on Saturday morning now and waited.
A half hour later, no poo, show is done, he gets up asked for a diaper and as soon as I put it on that oh so familiar smell permeated the surrounding area.
This week we had friends in town from CR. This week Seger started calling me ‘Corinne’ and saying ‘that sucks’. He even said them in the same sentence and in the right context. ‘Sucks’means pretty much one thing to most people right? Who doesnt say ‘that sucks’. I guess i wont be. Too bad
Every candle is a birthday candle, must be nice.
To The Moon
One night last week as i was leaving his room, i guess i was in a hurry and just said ‘i love you to the moon’. When i shut the door i heard him say ‘and back’. Now we do it as a routine, i just added ‘you know it’.
I listened to this lecture on Parenting for Peace. The lady said you could give your child messages while they are asleep so I tried it tonight. I told him the things i love about him like how kind, funny, and affectionate he is. I also told him how much i love him. i don’t know if he heard me but it sure felt good.
