Lately I’ve been spending more time in the bathroom with Joshua. I know that sounds weird, but it’s only because now he’s potty trained. Here are some things he has been saying that made me laugh.
The other day, he said he wanted to use the potty. So I put him on the potty, and I sat on the bathroom floor to wait for him. He was trying, but nothing was coming out. After a couple of minutes, all he managed was a toot. He looked at me with a big smile, and proclaimed, “Joshua no eat fart.”
A couple of days ago, it was just the two of us at home when Joshua told me he needed to use the potty. We go to the bathroom, I help him undress, and put him on the potty. I was standing there waiting for him to do his thing, when he looked at me and said with all seriousness, “Joshua need privacy.” He then insisted that I close the bathroom door and wait for him outside.
After a #2 one day, Joshua proudly jumped off the potty, flushed the toilet, and asked for help to wash his hands. When I was drying his hands with a towel, he said to me, “Joshua no wipe poo on mommy.” Thank you, son.
