#163: Potty Trained
SHE POOPS IN THE LOO
IT’S THE CIIIIIIIIRCLE OF LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIFE
…I realize that when people ask how Momo is doing, they probably don’t want to hear about her potty adventures. I mean, I am just short of lifting her over my head and demanding people pay tribute at our feet for finally slaying the dragon. LUCKILY, I have this here comic about parenting, and I’ll talk about it all the ding-dong day, because after three years of checking, wondering about, timing, changing, investigating, worrying over, midwifing, and meditating over literal baggies of excrement, my long watch has ended! My kid does her bidness in the potty!!
Okay, okay, except for a few days ago, when she got so mad at me she hid and revenge-pooped behind her play kitchen, but ONCE IN A WEEK AIN’T BAD. I’m actually kind of impressed at that level of spite. That’ll serve her well.
The secret? We started giving her Halloween candy only if she went a full day at daycare without having to change her pants. Never let it be said that the women of this family can’t do anything they put their mind to, if sufficiently motivated.
