Potty Training 101

16 Nov

  Today was Charlie’s first day to try and last in his Thomas the Train underwear.  It turns out that he does not realize they work a little different than diapers.   I came home today only to find out that he had gone through four pairs of pants and we were about to embark on another change. 
  Amy took him to the bathroom and started to put him on the toilet only to find out that he had given Thomas a little (OK, it was quite big) present.  Amy quickly asked him, “does it not bother you that you have poop in your pants.”  To which he quickly replied, “nope.”  The filth didn’t bother him at all, he just knew he was going to get to watch Thomas if he sat on the potty.
  It’s funny the things we will let sit in our lives.  They are the things we are not proud of, the things that haunt us, the things that we wouldn’t dare let those we respect know about.  It turns out that we all have things that we need to not be comfortable with.  We need to make sure we are not comfortable sitting in this filth.  We’ll see how long it takes Charlie to figure this potty thing out, but it seems like even as adults it is an object lesson we need to look back on every now and again.
