Pee-Pee on the Potty!

Milestone! Munch went pee-pee on the potty last weekend!

It was one of those accidental things--we are not yet starting potty training proper. We always give Munch "naked time" after his bath. The 20-30 minutes he plays in the nude are among his most carefree--and who can blame him? If I spent every other moment in a diaper, I'd relish a little air down there as well!

Over the past several months, he's gotten good at signalling when he's about to pee, so we can rush him into the diaper (as opposed to when he was younger when we kept cleaner on hand and he just let er rip while he played).

(The time he started pooping, when we were able to stick a diaper underneath him just in time, that was a shining parenting moment, I'll tell ya.)

Now, he'll look at one of us, get very quiet, start fiddling with his weiner, and say "Poopy." (Everything is poopy right now, be it #1 or #2.)

He did this last Friday night, and instead of rushing him into a diaper, we rushed him to the big potty. We held him on the pot and he looked at us like, "What now?"

I said, "Go pee pee! Go pee pee like Daddy!" (Sorry, Hubs.)

His belly tensed and then he peed! We cheered and clapped. It was a big night in our little realm. Now we need to find the perfect training potty for the big climb up Mount Potty Training.


  1. Woohoo!! Way to go, Munch! Little C sits on the potty but has yet to actually go. I like your idea of "naked time." Might try it out this weekend. ;)

    1. Naked time is definitely a risky time--you never know what may get peed on (read: you may get peed on). But it's worth it! ;)
