Who IS This Kid?

So I experimented over the weekend with having Rerun wear training pants.  He lasted for quite a while before I got lazy.  Even though he can “go” when prompted, he’s never shown an inclination that he’s conscious of a need to go.

I don’t want to push him, though I could train myself to take him potty all the time.  But I would be the one who was trained.  He has the idea of success in his head, he gets cookies, and he’s got the ability to release.  So I wasn’t worried about his lack of awareness.  After all, he’s only 2 and a half.

Then I picked him up from Grandma’s yesterday afternoon.  Rerun and Ane stay there while I take Tad to speech therapy.  Due to the fact that Grandma and Gichan’s house is pretty much their second home, I bought an identical potty seat to ours when Ane was potty training, and it has continued to live there.  Rerun has used it there, too, so he knows that he can use the potty there.

And Grandma told me that she’d found him in the bathroom, trying to unbutton his pants, and saying “Pobby?”  And he had just wet his diaper.

After hearing that, I told Grandma that I’m tempted to strip him naked, put the toddler potty out, and let him have at it.  And maybe I should institute daily viewings of “Elmo’s Potty Time.”

Who IS this kid???

He’s adorable, but he needs a haircut.

    He looks more like Tad than he used to.
