  • Thank you for making me laugh with that last quote sequence!
    Now, tell me what the heck you do in the case of a regression? We’ve gone from 99% done and him telling us all the time to pretty much refusing to go on the potty even when we tell him to. Oy, the frustration!

  • Oh my word, man did you make me LAUGH this morning!!!

    My little guy also does this. He does (what I call) the ‘pee-pee-dance’. Holding and hopping. “Go Pee.” is often replied to with “I don’t need to.” Are you kidding me?

    OH – my husband came up with a rare flash of brilliance and *totally* solved the whole little boy pee around the toilet fire hose thing too! He got these nice round target shaped ‘loo-smell-nice-thingy’s’ which he stuck to the back of the bowl, and one in the front of the bowl. So now when little boy goes pee pee, he is SO FOCUSSED ON TARGET PRACTICE that he doesn’t mess outside the bowl anymore (even if it is a fire hoser). He is Optimus Prime! He shoots with his lazer! The one at the back of the bowl is for when he is standing, and the one in the front is so that he can aim when he is sitting down for no. 2.

    Husbands, now I know why I keep mine around :)

  • Please don’t hate me TOO much for telling you that my 10 year old son STILLLLLLLLL occasionally holds it for just a little too long.
    It’s a boy thing.

    I can still remember my little (14 now) boy calling from the bathroom “Come and wop my bottom!!”

  • Ness, that’s exactly what my little guy still does! I love the target idea… might keep him focused on going in the bowl instead see how close he can go to the edge *without* missing. He fails regularly.

    Lotus: congrats. Seriously. It’s a long messy process. You made it. Love his dance. That’s awesome. Priorities are in order. I’m sure you’ll be receiving Mother of the Year shortly, especially for things like acceptance of sharts. They’re a fact of life. ;)

  • Yes, I think Amy is finally all toilet trained too. She’s even (wait for it, touch wood) completely dry overnight, with no nappy on. She has had an occasional wet the bed night, but mostly, she’s been clean and dry and thank christ for that.

  • I can’t thank you enough for starting my day with some fat man’s balls…amazing! I am so happy for you though…those cake batter undies couldn’t have been fun (however sharting s hysterical). I am nowhere near this point with my kids although when they watch me pee, you’d think it was a ticket holding event. They couldn’t be happier to watch me do my business…come to think of it, that may become my new parenting method. Every time they’re acting up, I’ll sit on the pot…nice, huh?

  • My FIVE YEAR OLD peed in her snowsuit because she held it in for so long, busy in the snow.

    Also. The same child. At xmas time was busy wrapping presents and peed in her pants.

    I can safely say she is a pee holder.

  • Letting my daughter go commando was the fastest and easiest way to potty train her. Back then we had hardwood floors and those were much easier to clean than Berber carpet. My son did the ‘hold it as long as I can’ thing too. Drove me nuts. I was happy that he was potty trained before he started kindergarten.

    Awwww, yay Braden! And yay mommy, congrats! I am a pee holder, too. Perhaps, we should form a support group. Maybe you should buy Braden a children’s book about kidney stones, I’ll bet there’s one somewhere out there.

    Anyone who’s judging you about Braden peeing on the floor has not met my kid, that’s for sure. Neilen once left a “gift” for Santa under the Christmas tree because we let him run around naked. They’re KIDS, man – they should be allowed to run naked and free before they get old enough for that to be a crime, literally.

    My kid still pees outside sometimes, like off the side of the porch ‘n shit. Well, not shit, just pee. You know what I mean, heh.

    January 25, 2010
  • Well, congratulations. We have just started with the twins, but I am not really talking about it.

    I have to dance before I pee too.

  • It is important for kids to learn about priorities, right? :-)
    My sister has to follow my frantic niece on her way to the toilet saying, “you’re going to make it. It’s okay. Just take a deep breath. Calm down.” To try to avoid the accidental pant-wetting from waiting too long.

  • I remember when you first posted that last shot. It was funny then. It’s still funny now.

    As the father of three sons, I promise you the day is coming when, should you be standing outside the bathroom door, you’ll hear,”GAWD DAY-UM!! Lemme go find MOMMEE! I gotta show her dis.” or words to that effect.

  • Every kid always has a ritual to perform before and after every task. Praying before going to sleep, kissing mom and dad goodnight and stuff like that. But this one is quite cool and funny.

  • If I stopped to do the Hammerdance before I ran to the toilet, my whole house would be brown & yellow.

    And I’m still (occasionally) wiping that light’s ass.

  • Lyn H.

    Congratulations. Love the baby pic and your writing. Hammertime – he he. My girl figured out the potty fairly quickly but at 3.5 insists on wearing the diaper at night. Argh. If Braden likes Elmo and you can tolerate it for a few minutes, you might want to check out “Elmo’s Potty Time” game online on It’s all about “Stop whatever you’re doing and go, or you might have an accident.” My daughter likes it. Glad your carpet is safer these days. Win!

    -This is so true. I guess this is one of those reasons why Christmas and Thanksgiving come in the latter part of the year. And usually, failed relationships are the ones that start on February, where love abounds and stuff like that. Congrats for potty training your son. Kudos!

  • Every time you see me that Hammer’s just so hype
    I’m dope on the floor and I’m magic on the mic
    Now why would I ever stop doing this
    With others makin’ records that just don’t hit
    I toured around the world from London to the BAY
    It’s Hammer go Hammer
    mc hammer yo hammer and the rest can go and play

    you can’t touch this….

    Sometimes, you just have to hammer. :)
