Potty training a-go-go

A smiling Squidge

Sunday was a special day.

We spent the day playing in the sand at Barry Island beach, Squidge jumping with the waves in the sea with Daddy while I look on. We had friends over in the evening while we sat in the garden with the outside lights on and eating pizza. It was a great day.

But that’s not why it was special. 

When we got home from the beach, we all needed a bath/shower. We started with Squidge, he had his usual play and usual screaming fit when we wash the soap off his hair. I then wrapped him up in a towel and we want and sat in front of the TV all snuggled up while we watched some Postman Pat. I said to Squidge ‘tell me if you need a wee wee and I’ll put a nappy on you’ – he didn’t respond.  A few mins later I put one on him anyway, and bundled him back up and cwtched him like a baby for about 15 mins while Daddy had a shower.

Daddy came down, swapped and I had a shower.

Then about 15 mins after I came back down, Squidge stands up and says ‘wee wee’ (it’s not unusual for him to say this). Then he said potty, grabbed his potty and sat on it (fully clothed). We said ‘you want to wee on your potty?’, he nodded, so we took his dungarees off, and then his vest (he also insisted on having his socks off! lol). He then sat down on the potty, concentrated and had a wee!!!!! We were amazed (as was he!), what a clever boy!

At 22 months old, he told us he needed a wee, got his potty out, sat on it and had a wee! We were so incredibly proud and amazed. I know this is just the beginning, and he might not want to do it again for a while, but it looks like he’s telling us he’s ready for potty training, so wish us luck!
