There Is A Potty In My Bathtub

3 years ago

This past summer Ale showed signs of knowing when he did pee pee. Like the over excited mama that I am I immediately went to Amazon and ordered a potty and a potty book. You know where this is going... It came and Ale was excited to see the potty and read the book but when it became time to actually sit on the potty without a diaper it was impossible. So I said no sweat we can do this later on. So the book went on the shelf and the potty is stored in my bathtub (New York City living- no closet space for a potty!!).

 

Now Ale is two years and two months old. I'm starting to get interrogated by mom's who have potty trained their 19moth old daughters in a day. I could perhaps technically do it if I reserve a week's time. Ale now grabs my hand to change him after poop. But, you know what? On this one I have to admit I'm just too lazy to do it right now. That's right- I can't be bothered.  Diapers are easy. I need something easy right now. I'm struggling with Ale eating well and sleeping. That is more than enough. I know that Ale won't be a teen in diapers so I'm not worried. This one I can drag out.

 

So good for you smarty pants moms who know all and get everything done efficiently. I like having a potty in my bathtub. It makes a good conversation piece.
