More True Life Tales of the Lord of Chaos
I'm in the midst of potty training Cal. It's only going so-so. He knows where he's supposed to potty. He even knows when he needs to potty and how to hold it. The system breaks down when you put a pull-up on him and he feels free to be lazy. It's evidently too much of a bother to take the time to walk to the bathroom, pull down those pants and MAKE HIS MOTHER'S LIFE A LITTLE EASIER!
This morning after getting rid of the night's diaper I let him run around the house naked. Sadly we've had the most success with potty use when he's naked or in his swimming suit. Unfortunately I can't see me having much success with the child welfare authorities when I tell them my son is naked in public because that's the only way he'll use the toilet. And a swimming suit in December is right out.
So I'm folding towels and sheets in my bedroom (the bed is perfect for sheet folding) and I walk into the kitchen. Cal has moved the dog crate to the cabinet and has gotten hold of a bottle of bubbles. He's standing on that crate, nekkid as a jaybird, blowing bubbles. He's also spilling bubble soap all down his front. Oh well. At least I didn't have to change his clothes.
