I have successfully potty trained two children, both girls. Then, there’s my now 3-year-old, Mase. He’s not that interested. He tried it. He got a few treats for his efforts. Then, back to the diapers.
Consequently, I was thrilled when Mase came to me and declared, “I need to go potty Mommy. You open bathwoom?” I was getting Dax dressed so I sent Dani to open the childproof bathroom door and told Mase I would help him in just a minute.
Dani came back only a few seconds later, “Mom, Mase didn’t need to go potty. He just wanted to wash a strawberry he stole from the fridge.” The report was confirmed as he immediately skipped into the room with a big smile and a half eaten strawberry in hand.
I’m grateful my son is so dedicated in his fruit washing. Now we just need to work on deception, stealing, and still…potty training.
