Potty Training Made Fun

Aren’t these the Best times with our toddlers? I have one girl, (now a teenager) and two boys. Plus, I have helped a few friends of mine with potty training. Let me start by saying, my girl was easy. Had no problems at all. The boys however, a whole different ballgame! Boys are gross! If you have boys you know exactly what I mean. My boys liked to grab their “parts” and talk about them! Oh, I’ve heard it all! My oldest son is five now. When he was potty training he used to get a hold of his “parts” and he was in awe. I remember him saying “look how big it is!” Boys play with themselves so much. I am constantly telling one of them to get their hands out of their pants and not to touch their butt holes. This makes me laugh so hard to even talk about.

Both my boys had a hard time going “poop” in the potty. I still am not sure what the reason is. My best guess is they didn’t want to take time out of playing to stop and use the bathroom. They both did great at the peeing part; it was just the pooping they didn’t want to do. I had to get creative and make it fun so I made up a song. More like a little rap about going potty.

I can clap my hands cause

I pooped in the potty not my pants

now  Worrrddd!!!”

I know, I know it is so silly. The crazy part; IT worked!  Who knew? They loved to sing along and they loved holding out the “word”. They both had a great time going to the bathroom after the rap song and the funny part is now we have neighbors who sing this song. Isn’t it amazing how just being silly can create something fun, catchy and apparently everyone want to sing along to.

So my best advice when it comes to potty training is: Have fun with it. If you don’t it can become very frustrating and not a good time for you or your toddler. We need to makes things as simple and fun as we can, because being a mom is stressful. We love it but it is hard. So save some sanity and sing the “potty rap” next time your toddler goes number two!
