Potty Time Adventures

I was out of town for about five days, and I'd unpacked my suitcase to sort laundry. The empty suitcase was still lying open on the bedroom floor.

Benjamin was getting ready for naptime. He'd wanted cereal for lunch, and he got milk and cereal all over his clothes, so I took off his shorts and shirt. And I needed to change his diaper anyways before his nap, so B was a little nakey boy. Smile He did a good job asking to go potty yesterday, so I thought I'd give him a chance today.

"Potty? Do you need to go potty? Do you want to go peepee in the potty?"

"Peepee?"

"Yes, peepee! Peepee time! Peepee time!"

I always let him choose where he wants to go potty--- does he want to go in the toilet in his bathroom? In his potty chair in his bathroom? Or does he want to use Mommy and Daddy's bathroom off our bedroom?

He wanted to use Mommy and Daddy's bathroom, of course. But wait--- what's this cool object lying in the middle of the floor on the way there? It's Mommy's suitcase! And of course he can't resist climbing in it and standing in it!

"No, Benjamin! It's peepee time! Silly baby! You do not go peepee in Mommy's suitcase----- AUUUUGHHH! NOOOO! YOU DON'T GO PEEPEE IN MOMMY'S SUITCASE!!!!"

Sighhhh... a glimpse into my glamorous life. Biggrin But I figured you guys would understand. Biggrin

Haha, I could see that happening to me. I hope everything was easily washable. Thanks for sharing the story.

How is the pregnancy treating you?

The lining's a little water-stained from the cleanup process, but it's the luggage I bought when I graduated high school, so nothing I'm too worried about. Smile Nice, solid hard-sided suitcase, horribly unfashionable, but very dependable. (Didn't realize it was unfashionable until I met someone whose mom sold luggage and accurately dated the age of my suitcase, lol. Just looks like a suitcase to me.)

@Andy, things are going great over here. MIL moved in from TN and is pitching in with Benjamin and getting her own house lined up. Took the opportunity to wean Benjamin after 25 months of nursing so I can reset for the new baby. Hopefully should hear the heartbeat for the first time next week... wish me luck. (Was a little too early for my first appointment, sadly.) No baby bump yet, which bothers me a little with everyone else talking about theirs. I often wonder if I really am pregnant--- but my sense of taste is so off (I can't stand stuff I used to drink ten times a day, same for eating) and I'm still pretty unfocused and lethargic, so I take those as my personal reassurances that yes, TaterTot's doing great.

==edit==
Oh, yes, and we had two lovely peepee's later on today, too. Hopefully he has some big boy undies in the near future if we can make a habit of it!

Well dependable is better than fashionable to me so that would stink. If it's just waterstained from cleanup then that's okay.

Yay for peepee's in the potty. I adore being able to put big kid undies on them. Faith's been in them for a couple weeks straight now. Very few accidents. She's really getting good about asking to go in the potty out in public. I fully expect her to have an accident now that I've posted that. The only downside (if you call it that) is that sometimes you have to put them in smaller pants. Hopefully it's a positive trend that continues. Minus the suitcase incident. Wink
