Potty training...I'd rather pull off a Band-Aid


For the past week, we have been potty training Aidan. WHEW! He's a tough egg to crack! Although he has got the potty thing down, the poops is a whole other story. We set the timer, and he takes off like a horse in the races to the toilet. He does great and tries really hard, but some of these quotes he gives are just too darn funny to pass up!

"My peepee is hiding mommy! I won't come out!"

"How about I just try later!?"

"Hmmm....I think that later is a better idea."

"Mommy, I look like Papa on the potty!"

"I need a book like daddy!"

"I'm a big boy now, I can go to school and play soccer like the big kids!"

There are so many more, but this last one that was said last night as we attempted to encourage him to go poops on the potty was a class act!

Ted put him on the potty and said that if he went poopy on the potty that we could go to McDonald's to get icecream. Looking at Ted, I said, and you're going to take him out in subzero weather?! LOL! Of course he would take him and I would go too, but in response to this comment, Aidan said:

"Daddy, I don't think my poops will come out, it must be tired!"

Oh my goodness! Ted and I were rolling! His poops was tired!!! That is too much! If you know Aidan, if he doesn't want to do anything, then he is tired or the toy is tired, or the food is tired so he can't eat it. The kid...what are we gonna do with him?
