Potty/Toilet Training

At long last… 

I’ve been trying to potty train my son for almost a year now and I have to admit it was a struggle on my part. I get frustrated and almost gave up months ago because I was scared he might step and slip on his own pee while I am working.

December 18 ( Sunday)

While preparing for his bath, my little man wasn’t wearing a diaper and he suddenly shouted pee! We both hurried to his potty and to my surprise he really peed! I cheered loudly after he did it and was really happy.  After a few more minutes, he told me he was going to poop and I didn’t have to ask him to sit on his potty–he did it on his own. Again, we clapped and cheered for him and he looked so proud of himself so was I!

Finally, he was ready! The struggle is real but it was worth the wait!

His dad asked him what reward does he want to receive, we all laughed when he said: “Phone, big phone!!!” He meant to say, borrow mommy’s big phone.

Thank you Lord for this achievement! All things are beautiful in His time. 🙂

#PaulParcs Toddler Vocabulary

Toddlers have their own way of communicating but most of the time they learn by mimicking what adults say and do. As much as we would like to understand what they’re trying to tell us, let’s admit it that we don’t get it all the time. Often, this can frustrate your toddler and may be a source of their tantrums. Be patient with your toddler, if you don’t understand the word try to ask them leading questions. It took me months to finally figure out my toddler’s vocab so here are examples of his cute toddler words:
