Use the Potty Daddy?

We’ve been working on potty training. And when I say working, I really mean Mommy has been begging, trying, talking about, reading a million annoying books about, and basically hating the whole potty training thing. So far Sweetness has mastered grabbing her full diaper and announcing she wants to sit on the potty. After months of this, that’s all she’s grasped. Sitting on the potty and announcing when she’s already gone in her diaper. Great.

Well, she is learning. And this morning she shared this new knowledge with Hubby, who was sitting in manly fashion on the couch. You know the pose: legs comfortably apart, leaning back, eyes fixed on the TV. He was wearing baggy cargo shorts and a t-shirt.

Sweetness walked up, grabs him squarely in the “package” and announces, “Daddy pooped.”

In addition to the high pitched squeal worthy of a teenage girl around a tarantula, Hubby said, “No sweetie, that’s not poop.” As he took her hands.

She tried to poke him again. “Daddy go sit on the potty.”

At this point I was giving myself the Heimlich because I was now choking on the strawberry I was eating. Mr. Man also started crawling over to Sweetness and Daddy to investigate the commotion.

“No, I don’t need to use the potty, thank you.” Hubby is bright red and not really sure what to say as he keeps batting away her hands. “I think Mommy needs your help.”

“Oh no, this is too good,” I managed to choke out.

Now Sweetness thinks grabbing at Daddy and having him push her hands away is a great game.

Poor Hubby. Is it sad that that’s the most action he’s gotten in a week?

Truly a thing of beauty. Any time they embarrass someone that isn’t their Mom….

Oh my gosh…why is it that the truth always makes me laugh? I agree, same over here, “most action in a week.”
