I started potty training Rand this week. It's a family adventure. Everybody gets pretzels when he pees. Everybody gets Skittles when he poops. He hands them out with dignified toddler pride.
So when I started with David, two friends gave me advice that formed my potty training philosophy. You need realistic expectations and hope.
- (From Janice) Just accept that your house will be covered in pee for awhile.
- (From Melissa, who was starting the potty adventure for the first time at the same time I was.) I keep telling myself that even the children of crack addicts are potty trained by kindergarten.
