Haiku Friday: Choo-Choo, Pee-Pee
The boy loves his trains.
It’s not wrong to use that, right?
As pee leverage.
Giraffe diapers gone.
In their place: Train underpants.
Three pairs. One big smile.
Thomas and his friends,
They don’t like to be messy.
So stay dry, okay?
Just two weeks in and
he’s sold: He drank my Kool-Aid.
(And then peed it out.)
Errands are a blast.
He says, “Pee!” I say, “Let’s go!”
We do. Drop by drop.
He’s so very pleased,
Shuffling his feet and clapping:
A potty two-step.
My sweet Giggles with
Choo-choos on his chubby cheeks?
A big boy now. Sigh.
How do you interest your kids in potty training? How do you celebrate successes? Is there any other milestone that’s as monumental as this one?
