Pee Like Daddy

WARNING: If you are not a parent or don't enjoy stories about using the potty - I strongly urge you to look away & close this post...Seriously. 

Oh what fun having a toddler is.

No. I'm serious. No sarcasm. I love having a toddler. There are tough moments for sure, but the good and fun far surpass the chaos. Plus - I'm one of those insane people that love the chaos as well.

This morning, while getting ready to go to my Endow women's study group, I noticed it was quiet in my house. Quiet is a very frightening sound when you're the mother of a toddler. I went looking for Monster. He was in the bathroom wiping up the very wet floor...naked as a j-bird from the waist down. When asked if he was playing in the toilet again, he proudly replied:

"I PEE LIKE DAHHHDEE." (My child has a British accent on some words. Not sure why.)

Yep. He peed standing up. He's two, so he can't reach the toilet that way. I clapped and cheered for him because - let's face it - he tried and that's what counts. I explained that next time, he should probably go on and sit so the pee pee goes in the potty. I grabbed the towel he was using to clean the floor and saw that he had used it to wipe his behind. What did I do?

I cheered again. What? Quit looking at me like I've lost my mind. He wiped himself & went number two in the big potty! This is big business, y'all. My child is a toddler genius.

I'm still giggling at his intense pride over peeing like Daddy. The kid cracks me up.


  1. You're too funny. Get Monster a step stool for the potty... then toss some fruit loops or cheerios in there for "target practice"... the potty is a major deal - so good on ya, my little Brit!
