Luke has been making steps towards potty trained status. I think my biggest problem is that I just don’t know when he’s gonna want to go, so it’s impossible for me to encourage him at the right time. I’ve encouraged him to let me know when he has to make a dookie or go pee-pee, but I don’t think he’s prioritizing this quite the same as I am. He seems quite comfortable with the flexibility of being able to take a piss at any given moment and anywhere he chooses. When described in that manner, it almost seems appealing to me as well.
My wife said that she got him on the toilet the other day and seemed ready to do some work. He basically kept looking down into the toilet to see if there was any potty in there. Is it possible that he doesn’t understand that he is in control of the potty making ? Maybe he thinks that when Daddy goes it’s a magic trick.
I do think we are making progress though. I have begun taking his diapers to the toilet and I put the dookies in there and let him flush them. He really seems to get excited about the flushing. Hopefully that leads to excitement about filling up that toilet instead of his diaper.
