Do y’all remember when I told y’all how excited Monkey was to go on the “potty train”?
Go refresh your memories.. I’ll wait.
The Potty Train(ing) has been a spectacular, dare I say, monumental failure. He has no desire to ride the potty train, none whatsoever.
We are still rockin’ the diapers.
Well the other day, he pulled a Ninja Monkey maneuver that entailed him getting his diaper off without first removing his shorts.
I’m tellin’ y’all he’s crafty. One day, I’m going to try to make toast and my garage door is going to start opening instead.
So while Nathan and I are sitting at the table eating, Monkey came up to us and said:
“I think I going poopy”
I told him to come back when he was done and I’d change his diaper.
He says to me:
“I not wearing a diaper
I jump up from the table, rush him to the bathroom and plop him on the toilet.
While I’m chatting with him and telling him to “push the poopy out” he reaches down and starts pulling on his p-nis (ha ha..see how I cleverly thwart those google preverts) I’m talking taffy pulling kinds of pulling.. it hurt me to look at it.
I asked him what he was doing…
Dead serious look on his face:
“I pulling it to make the poopy come out”
That’s when I threw in the towel and went and got Nathan. Then, I sat down and I laughed until I cried.
I totally don’t get the taffy pull! At what point does it just plain hurt? I’m trying to teach my 18 month old about the potty…we are hit and miss…he doesn’t say much yet, but if I say “potty” he runs to the potty seat…but I mostly think he likes to sit on it and hear it play music!

He is such a stinker! But, he was sooo proud runnin’ around in Daddy’s glasses.
LOL!!! Boys are fun! 🙂

That? Is totally awesome.
Good luck with the potty training. I pray it goes better for you than it did for us with my first son. OY!

That’s awesome! Evan pulls his too, and when I ask why, he says “because it hurts.” I don’t get it. Must be a guy thing. =)

Boys certainly are strange little creatures 😉 But, we wouldn’t trade them for the world, would we?
All I know is, they make life so interesting, and no I wouldn’t trade my little guy in for anyone else, not even a little princess. (Cuz there’s not room in my family for more than 1 princess… and that’s me… and sometimes Evan. It’s a complicated thing.) =)

Yeow! Now I will enjoy a few moments of being glad I have a girl.

ok, first – that is hilarious. yay for dad stepping in.
second – why didn’t I think of that? THE POTTY TRAIN. Maybe if I can convince him THOMAS does it, he’ll want to do it. Hmmm, worth pondering.
.-= Erin G´s last blog ..Running With Daddy =-.
That was freaking HIL-ARRRIOUS! You could always do what we did with Scottie. and tell him another little boy named bill needs his diapers because his mommy and daddy can’t buy him any…we wrapped them, it was a big deal. He wore a pull up at night for a bit, but it was pretty smooth….SAM on the other hand…we will be in size 6 diapers soon…and i am scared! lol we did get a lightening potty seat the other day so he can at least practice sitting on the potty. the chairs were all to small for him…sigh
Awe . . . we’ll be there soon enough.
May I laugh and cry with you?
OMG, that is too funny!
I’ve been meaning to stop by and say what a pleasure it was to meet you at BlogHer, by the way… 🙂

I’m so telling Mr. Hot about this next time he complains about being constipated. 😉

OMG. lol, Boys!

As a mom of two boys, I can totally relate. The botty training nightmare, the penis magic, calling daddy in when you’re at a loss in the penis department. It’s all part of the job. But man is it hilarious along the way!

I think I just found my rap name: P-nis. And I’m sure Nate told monkey that pulling it does nothing to get the poopy out, and that to get it out you have to crank it, like a Jack in the Box.
.-= BusyDad´s last blog ..Time to Rant =-.
Ha Ha Ha Ha HA!!!! Nate cracked up at this, as did I 🙂
There are some situations that require a father’s intervention. That was definitely one of them!

Oh, that is too much. Right now, I’m quite thankful I don’t have boys:) I don’t know what I would have done (except laugh and get daddy)!
.-= Krystyn´s last blog ..The first day back =-.
Well…it would make things so much easier if they actually did have a lever to make it come out;P

HAHA. I love having a boy but that whole thing? The potty training? OHMAN. Baby O wants me to “help” him point his p-nis. And I gotta say, Uh. No.
