Potty Talk

Grandma Phipps took Dakota and Hunter for some quality time on Tuesday. She took them to the park for a picnic and duck feeding and back to her house to play. They had a great time. She told me about this conversation she had with Dakota... Dakota told her that he had had diarrhea. She asked him "where did that come from?". Dakota thought about it for a few seconds and told her "it came from my butt". This demonstrates the importance of thinking about the question you are going to ask before you actually ask it. :)

In other potty news, last night Hunter went pee on the potty. It's not the first time, he will sometimes go at Miss Elaine's (his sitter), but he usually refuses to go for us. We don't believe in forcing the issue, but it would be nice if we didn't have to by diapers and pull-ups anymore. He was super excited and yelled "I went pee on the potty!" then gave us all high fives.

I will have to remember this (about the questions) when Ethan gets older. Ethan will use the potty, but only if he is fully clothed with his diaper still on. Then he says he's done, "I pee." If only he would. Good luck!

You gotta love the way kids think! I'm sure he was wondering why his Grandma didn't already know where it came from. I can see myself getting caught in that.
Congrats to Hunter! It probably won't be long now before he goes all the time.

That is way too funny! I have had to share that story a few times with my family.

As for Hunter...I am with you. I have had my best success letting them do it when they feel they are ready.
