So, we have tirelessly been working on potty training over here... but one of the hiccups has been that little Reid INSISTS on stripping down to, well...nuttin!! No pullup, no shorts, no shirt...even socks need to be off! Toby lovingly calls this bear style. I call it frustrating.
I have begun to see a pattern in our bathroom endeavors as well...first clothes off, then business taken care of (or not), and then washing of hands of course...but then this also turns into brushing teeth (Reid's insistence, not mine). While I do love that he is brushing his teeth once every 1 to 1 1/2 hours I really would rather a potty experience, at least one, without brushing of the teeth! Plus, streaking around preschool is not going to go over well...nor do I plan to pack his toothbrush to seal the deal! ;)
If you give a kid a potty chances are he'll peal his clothes off down to the buff... If he peals his clothes off down to the buff chances are he'll need to wash his hands....and if he washes his hands chances are this will remind him of the last time (1/2 hour ago) that he brushed his teeth and will insist on doing it again, and again, and again......
I am blessed to be married to an incredibly loving and kindhearted man, Toby, and I am a mom to 2 boys...I am in the chapter of my life that involves baseball games, homework, playdates, diapers, and dump trucks. It is simply the best! With every part of my being I love being "Mom" and have learned the depth at which my heart can go when our youngest son was born with Down syndrome. This blog was created to connect with other families on this same journey that an extra 21st chromosome presents. Join me as I journal about Down syndrome, life, and raising Reid and his big brother Luke.
