potty talk

Actual conversation at my house this morning, in the kids' bathroom:

Oliver, sitting on the potty:  The pee in my penis is ready to come out!
Mum, sitting on the toilet seat: That's great! If you pee in the potty you can have a piece of chocolate and a sticker.
Oliver: The pee came out! I peed in the potty! Do you have pee in your penis?
Mum: I don't have a penis.
Oliver: chock-a-lat please

There are so many ways that conversation could have gone. I am so glad it ended with an M&M.

Hahaha. That is priceless. Good thing chocolate is often more important to children than...well, most other things.

Go Oliver with the potty training!

That's too funny! I am really trying to get Gabriel potty trained. I have enjoyed reading your posts about Oliver. I should write about my trials. Right now there is nothing wrong in his mind about sitting in wet or poopy underwear. It doesn't bother him at all. :( Oh well...I'll keep at it!
