How to score some cake

So operation toilet training has been going really well at our household. The whole process has been pretty labour-intensive but also interspersed with plenty of light-hearted and funny moments which has helped ease things along.

Here’s one recent funny episode: Hubs was sneaking in a quick snack of cake before dinner. He was promptly caught by our little man who has a very sensitive radar for these sorts of treats. Here is the conversation that followed…

[I should mention that whenever Nathan initiates doing a pee or poo by himself without any prompting, he can claim a little treat in the form of a small chocolate chip]
Nathan: Daddy! Daddy! Can I have some cake?
Daddy: Erm… no, you already had a chocolate chip just now. 
[Nathan then runs over to his potty and squeezes out a few drops of precious pee] 
Nathan: I did a pee! I can have some chocolate, yes? *innocent face
[Hubby and me burst out laughing at this point. I start moving towards the jar of chocolate treats. But Nathan had his plan all laid out already…] 
Nathan: *With a cheeky grin* Wait! I don’t want chocolate. How about cake?
He got his wish. We just couldn’t resist such cleverness, cunning and cheekiness.

That’s my cheeky little man!

  1. Haha, well at least it's working. Potty training was quite a pain for us as Sophie developed a fear to poo in the potty and caused her constipation.

    1. Oh dear! Must be quite a phobia that she would rather hold it in resulting in constipation than release it. I'm guessing you guys are past all that now.

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
