Potty Training. The big moment has arrived! It has begun. I am so NOT ready!
Aden is asking to use the potty (without prompting from me)! Due to no effort on our part, the bumbling parents, the child is doing what he is supposed to! All I can say is, “Thank You Daycare”! That’s the good part. The other part of this new adventure in parenting is that I am overwhelmed with sadness at how quickly he is growing up. This is one of the biggest challenges as a parent that I have been dreading.
I was completely floored when he asked to use the potty earlier last week after waking up with a wet diaper. The second time, whoa, this was momentous! Success! He sat on the potty and did what he was supposed to! A proud moment in parenthood! But alas, that was last week and this week we haven’t had as much progress.
I feel like the babysitter here, just hoping the kid knows what to do because I sure don’t. I’ve read everything there is to read about potty-training methods but somehow spending a whole weekend with a naked child forcing him to sit on the potty every twenty minutes doesn’t seem like a great way to teach a kid.
