Wait, you did what? WHERE?

My 2 1/2 year old is trying his best at potty training. Mainly because there is a treat for every time he hits his goal of the porcelain trophy. However, he doesn't understand the difference between underwear and pull ups which has resulted in full on nudity in my household.

I was on the phone with a friend when it all happened. A life changing moment. I saw my little streaker running up to me with eyes full of pride shreaking "Mommy poo!!! Mommy Poo!"
"Wait, You went potty?"
"Outside, I'm a dog too!"
Sigh. This is the time I heard my friend crying and laughing hysterically in the phone. Given this is better than having to clean up a mess on my new carpet. But can you imagine if the neighbor would of just happened to be peeking over the fence (which they often do)? Or when we go to a friends house and he has to go potty, running passed the bathroom to the back yard buck naked to do his business. I have to admit, this visual did make me giggle somewhat. I guess from now on I'll keep the back door locked and change the channel from animal planet to prevent any more fun new ideas. He picks up things quickly, but after recent events, I think I'll hold off calling him a genius just yet.


  1. so funny...i have asked the same thing..

  2. One of the many many reasons why I am so glad I have girls. And as far as the neighbors go, maybe getting an eye full will make them think twice about peeking over fences.

  3. We are beginning potty training, as well. I have a 19 month old baby girl. Love your blog!!
