A Boy’s Most Important Potty Milestone

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.

  1. Okay, I have to share! D and I were taking a walk with Miss L (12 weeks) in the Mei Tai, and she really seemed like she needed to go. We were probably 15-20 minutes from home, so I semi-insisted we stop and pee her in a discreet area off the trail, in the woods. Sure enough, she went and was much happier! (We always carry a couple of cloth wipes, mostly for possible puke.) I am soooo not one for camping or hiking or sh!tting in the woods, but I was waaaaay too proud, LOL.

    • YES! I love that. (EC) babies definitely don’t care ow far from our home potty we are. I went on a play date on a trail and Lanoy went in the woods. EC is soooo convenient and no waiting around to get to a changing area. EC for the win!

So, what do you think?
