If you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie and wipe the seatie (Day Three)

As the mother of a five-year-old son, I learned very quickly upon potty training the immense importance of AIM.

Two years later we're still not out of the dark.


When a young gent is familiarizing himself with the function of his penis, in this case for urinating, it has been my experience that especially in the morning these fellas need the utmost guidance. Why it's my job to guide him is beyond me. It seems his father would be far better suited for the task.

Gil's memory of childhood will be led by my very specific instructions, "IN THE TOILET, GIL!" "Did you flush?" "Wash your hands?"

Or when he goes to stay with his girlfriend's family for a weekend during college, he'll emerge from the bathroom, head straight to the lady of the house announcing, "I peed IN the toilet, flushed, AND washed my hands."

Thanks for a view of my future. lol I am threatening my husband that if he does not take care of the potty training duties then I will teach them to pee sitting down.

Another teacher told me that she used to put some Cheerios in the toilet before they would go and tell them to try and sink the Cheerios! I should maybe try this idea with my 33 year old boyfriend. I feel like that's all I do is clean up 3rd grade students in our classroom bathroom, my dog, and my boyfriend!
Love you Em....
