Mother gets idea that Small Child might be ready for toilet-training.
Bought small frog-shaped potty, to inspire Small Child's bladder and bowel evacuation.
10: 15 am
Bought Robin Eggs as reward for filling frog.
Removed Small Child's diaper.
Child is thrilled to be liberated from restrictive pants.
Spends some time inspecting himself, now that he has access to his dangly bits.
Child becomes nervous and begs for diaper.
Small Child not at all thrilled about potty. In fact, seems sort of frightened. Maybe is because potty has eyes and feet. Is maybe not the best idea for potty. Is maybe the reason potty was on sale?
12:00 pm child finally coaxed onto potty with a single Robin Egg, and sits on it (torlet, not Robin Egg) while he eats his lunch. Yes, Mother understands is unhygienic.
Small child fills frog potty!!
(with mac and cheese)
Child is re-diapered and put down for a nap.
Mother eats half bag of Robin Eggs by herself during nap time.
Mother rationalizes that she deserves poo candy cause she totally used the toilet, no problem. All day long, in fact. Although she didn't use the frog potty.
Mother did three sudoku puzzles. She is loving sudoku. Why did no one ever tell her about sudoku before? Is way fun, and not as nerdy as you think!
Small child's older siblings come home and wake him. Eldest sister sees potty and removes small child's diaper without telling Mother. She brings books and musical instruments outside with potty, and small child sits and reads for a very long time.
Small Child produces 3 drops of urine! It falls in frog potty! Mother and siblings make big stink over it.
Child gets candy reward.
Naked small child dons giant roller skates. Gets back on potty. Mother takes photos.
