Toilet Learning

Our pediatrician has been around for awhile. As in, he began practicing before I was born. That’s a good thing though. He’s on top of things, and keeps up to date with studies, and he’s got a vast amount of experience.

So when I went to him for help with our seemingly never-ending quest to get Violet potty trained, I wasn’t that surprised that he recommended a slightly older book. It’s not that any of the information is bad or unfounded. It’s just that’s is all so groovy.

Really Groovy.

Hey, kid, even cops and firemen gotta take a crap, ok?

So obviously there is an adult-instruction section, and another portion which is the kid’s section, where the previous photos are from.

Tonight I read Violet the kid’s portion for the billionth time, and afterwards, she wanted to take a crack at “reading” it herself. This is good. This is a positive potty-training kind of step. So I asked her page by page what was happening.

We got to this one:

And she said, “The boy is peeing on the bananas.”

I realized then, that she was totally correct.

    I need this book, both in a parenting way (E’s not on the pot yet either) and in a “that is the best picture of a fireman on a toilet ever” way.

    I showed Josh the pic before reading Violet’s explanation and he said “Why is that boy peeing on bananas?” That is so funny and indeed groovy!
