We are totally owning potty learning because it’s safe to say Humnoy is 98% diaper-free. Now that he has no need for a diaper at all times, his pants fit a little looser. A hilarious result of potty learning and going long bouts without a diaper is baby crack. The equivalent of plumbers crack, Humnoy shares with the world his friendly reminder that he is just a boy learning to be without a diaper and fellow parents get a kick out of it. The playground kids aren’t quite comfortable with it yet though.
Another laugh of potty learning took a few tries and a couple of wet pants until one evening at the playground. Humnoy did a potty dance amid playing “tag” with his neighborhood friends. I noticed and asked if he needed to go potty and he refused because that would also mean stop playing. He refused up until we were walking home. I then excitedly provided the opportunity to pee outside. He pulled his corduroys down and cued himself with a “pssssss” (just like EC with his sister). I think his initial refusal lacked privacy too. This was obviously the first time he’s peed standing up with pants around his ankle so I had to help ‘aim.’ It dribbled on his pants before the aim-intervention but he got it on the bush. That, folks, was Humnoy’s first public pees-perience and it happened well before he did it between parked cars in college too.
What do you think is the most important potty learning milestone?
