Bedtime ritual

Lil B @ 2 years 8 months

Really beh tahan this fella… Full of faces and antics.

For many weeks, I lost count, lil B will use night pooping as an excuse just before bedtime. It has become a ritual every single night. Sometimes he could produce something, most of the time not because more often than not he would have pooped during the day.

This is the look I get when his antic produces no fruit.

Potty Training Updates

Lil B @ 2 years 2 months

Lil B made tremendous progress following the last update on his potty training progress
when he was 20 months. Eversince, the rest was history. Whenever he gets thevurge to poop, he tells us ‘poo poo, big piece coming out‘. It’s really cute. Bringing him to the toilet many times a day is quite taxing but the good news is lil B literally skipped the potty phase and straight to toilet trained. So it makes the after cleaning a whole lot easier.

After our little success, we embarked on our next mission. We showed lil B some of the cute tiny underpants and asked if he would like to put them on
instead of wearing his usual diaper. He was very enthusiastic about trying new things. So there goes. One step nearer. Unfortunately despite his enthusiasm,
there were just too many ‘accidents’. So we put our plan on hold.

It wasn’t after the Chinese New Year I decided it’s time to restart our mission. Afterall, lil B was already 25 months. We started with lil B going
diaperless in the morning. Again, he was positive about the underpants. He was happy to put them on.

The initial phase was rather exhausting. I left instructions for my maid to bring lil B to the toilet every 20-30 minutes in the event I am not around.
Unlike the first round, this time lil B was able to communicate his needs better. He understands the need to pee in the toilet and would tell us ‘Pee
Pee’, though many times it was AFTER he peed. There was one time lil B peed on the bed right next to hubby, and the latter came telling me off for putting
Darren diaperless when he is not ready. I rebuked and insist it is a phase all toddlers have to go through. Now this man thinks the child will wake up one
fine day telling him ‘Daddy, I am ready to go diaperless’. That’s toilet training in his dictionary. WTF.

Thankfully, our perseverance paid off. Soon, Darren gets the hang of it after a few bummers here and there. Phew, thank the lucky stars for Darren never
let Mommy down. I think the whole process took us about a week or two. Nowadays, he will tell us he needs to pee and unlike last time whereby we had
to quickly drop whatever we were doing and rush him to the toilet, nowadays we could ask him to hold awhile until we settle with whatever we are in the midst
of doing. I am proud to say lil B is fully diaperless during the day before he turned 26 months.

I’m beyond thrilled with Lil B’s toilet training progress. He skipped the potty and prefers the toilet right away. I guess doing it in the toilet bowl gives
him a sense of being part of the grownups. Just this morning, he told me he wants to go school. This little boy is growing up way to fast.

Back to his toilet training, it has been 3 nights since lil B woke up with an unsoiled diaper. He is able to control his bladder and stay dry for about 9
hours. Sometimes before sleep, he will demand to be brought to the toilet to pee (many times so he could drag his sleeping time). There were a few times he cry pitifully because his evil Mommy refused to bring him to the toilet and asked him to pee in his diaper. *evil*

Anyways, I’m not sure if it is a sign he’s ready to be fully diaperless. Afterall, he’s only 26 months so I am not in any hurry to send the diapers off. Afterall, I still have lots of them in the store. :P

Record Breaking

Lil B @ 1 year 1 month 3 weeks

Tonight my lil B set a new record. From 9pm to 10pm, he demanded I bring him to the toilet to pee not once, not twice, not three, four but TEN times!!!!

At one point I got so tired, my back was aching from the up down commotion, I just asked him to pee into his diaper but the little cheeky monster insists to pee into the toilet bowl. I tried ignoring his pleas but he was too loud to be ignored for I was afraid he will wake his brother up. Despite knowing his motive to delay his sleep time I had to gwai gwai fulfil his wishes.

It is not the first time lil B ‘jeh liu dun’ (using toilet break) as excuse to sleep late. I normally give in as I see that as a good sign he’s almost ready to be 100% diaperless (he’s diaperless during the day since a week or so ago) but tonight is a real record breaker. It was one holy smolly T I R I N G chore. *wipe sweats*
