Poo. Everything is about poo in our house this week. Or this month I should say, or what feels like forever (please, please let my child poo in the toilet soon).
My 2.5 year old is potty training. That dreaded time when you realise there could, and probably will be, wee everywhere and poo in places there shouldn’t be. Please don’t judge me. If you have kids you may know what I mean. You might have been lucky and your kid might just have magically potty trained overnight. But not mine.
Don’t get me wrong, the weeing situation happened pretty quickly. I have the most awesome childminder and she started the potty training and Toby got it pretty quickly to be fair. Yeah, we had a few accidents but mostly it was all good. But then came the poo.
Oh my, we have had tears, we have had poo in his pants, in his PJs, in the pop-up tent thing that they love so much. The funniest by far though was when he decided to sit next to his big sister and have a wee and then a poo right next to her. Needless to say, she was not impressed. I, however, thought it was bloody hilarious! Don’t worry I know what your thinking… the sofa is leather (easy wiped).
I never realised a child could be so scared of having a number 2. I mean, it’s totally natural, right? My daughter (eldest child) seemed to be fine, just done the deed in the potty, accepted it and moved on, but Toby… he seems to think the world’s gonna end, bless him.
Oh, and while I am ranting about poo someone please send me or direct me to where I can get lots and lots and lots of really good air fresheners. I mean seriously I live in a house of boys/men. Eevey and I are totally outnumbered. The bathroom smells from the hubby, the boy’s room smells from the baby and well, it smells where ever Toby has decided to do his latest poo haha. Send help, please!!
To all new and expectant parents. Good luck!!
Oh and trust me when I say this, you can read all the books you want on how to potty train your child in a day/week/month. It’s rubbish. They will do it when they are good and ready and not before!
