Proud Momma Moment

Alex is 2 yrs and 7 months old. Today, for the first time, he asked me to take his diaper off so he could pee in his potty. So I did. He sat there, and sat there, and sat there some more.

After about 15 minutes he started getting upset saying: ‘scared of poo momma, need a diaper please momma… scared poo in potty. Please Momma, Alex diaper’

It was heartbreaking. Part of me wanted to give in so he wouldn’t be so distraught. Part of me wanted to not give in and try to work through it with him.

So I sat on the floor next to him and talked to him. About how big boys use the potty. And he’s a big boy now, not a baby like Zoey. It wasn’t working. He was still asking for a diaper. I was about to give in. I hate seeing him upset. When all of a sudden his face lit up and he shifted so he could see in the potty and said ‘look Momma, water in my potty!’ 


Here’s hoping he does it again! 

Love, hugs and more to come later!

  1. Lol reminds me of our potty days. They are scared of poo because something is leaving their body-weird. I was the mean mom who made him sit there for 45 minutes and it finally fell out because he had to go so bad. Mean but necessary as it worked like a charm.
