Day Two

On Day Two of potty training Riley, this is what I know for sure:

  • I know a lot about poop. Period.
  • Smartphones and tablets have transformed potty training.  Apps on the Kindle Fire have been a godsend for keeping Riley’s tush on the potty for more than twelve seconds at a time. 
  • “Flushed Away,” an animated movie about a British mouse named Roddy who gets flushed down the toilet and discovers an underground mouse city, is a great tool to demystify the scary, dark hole at the bottom of the toilet bowl.   This movie should be on every parent’s potty training supply list.
  • Potty training never ends,  Riley is the one on the hot seat (literally), but Dylan has wet his bed two nights in a row.
  • Laundry does not put itself away.
  • Kids remember everything.  I told the boys I would take them to the Naples Zoo when Riley was done with potty training.  Now, every time Riley pees,  he asks, “Can we go to the Naples Zoo now?”
