As I was sitting on my bathroom floor this morning nursing Milly (I know, yuck) while cheering Otis on for going on the potty and trying to prevent him from reaching in to touch his poop, I thought to myself,
“I need a raise.”
Otis has decided in the last few weeks that he doesn’t want to wear diapers anymore. He loves going on the toilet. We have spent more time in the bathroom in the last week than I think I have in my whole life. I had no desire to potty train right now, but decided to just let him go on the potty whenever he asks…which has turned out to be alot more often than I bargained for.He makes it to the toilet on time alot of the time. But also at least 10 times a day he will tell me frantically that he has to go, only to go in there and have him squeeze out a tiny drop and say he needs a potty treat. Or if we are out or at a store he'll tell me he needs to go then we go find a bathroom and he'll just want to play with the hand dryer, toilet paper, flusher (yuck again, I hate public bathrooms). I am so exasperated by it all. So maybe this is just a phase and we’ll go back to diapers? Or maybe he will get it one of these days?
Until then, you can find me on the bathroom floor cheering, wiping, cleaning... and nursing.
