@ 26 months 3 weeks 5 days
*hot subject now eh with most 2 yr olds…*. Mine goes like this…
Ryan’s wee wee training had not been consistent. Usually after 2 or 3 wet episodes (training pants), I’ll put him back on diaper assuming he wasn’t ready. Then a couple days later, we’ll repeat the same old process.
Yesterday, 11th July marked the first day I stripped him off his diaper, off his training pants.
There were two accidents yesterday morning. The first, he told us he wanted to ‘shee-shee” but before we could get to the washroom, he wet his pants. I brought him to the toilet and asked if he still want to ‘shee shee’. He said yes. Huh??? But he did. Looks like he actually held his pee and finished off the remaining on the WC. For his effort, I gave him the thumbs up and big clap for telling us about it. He sure like the praises as he was beaming proudly here and there.
Second time, not so lucky. He was jumping up and down when I heard the sound of ‘shee-shee’ flowing down. He stood there stagnant and I knew the mission had failed. Sigh…
Later, when it was nap time I let him pee again in the toilet before I changed him back into diaper. While he was having his milk, we recap on what happened (the wee wee incidents) and reminded him to let mommy know when he wants to pee next time.
When he woke up from his nap about 2.5 hours later, I was so surprised to find his diaper clean and dry. I asked if he wanted to ‘shee-shee’, he said yes. Quickly brought him to the washroom and pee he did. Wow! Wow! Wow! He was so happy when we praised him again for his success. Ryan oh Ryan… Hahaha..
We continued to ask Ryan if he wants to go toilet like every an hour or so. At one point he actually got quite annoyed with our constant reminders that he actually screamed ‘NO’. Blehhh. Anyways, whatever it is, annoyed or pleased, no more ‘accidents’ that whole afternoon until the night. Yippeeeee!!!
When I was tucking him in bed yesterday night, Ryan told me he wanted to ‘shee-shee’. Bad mommy assumed it was another trick of his to get away from sleep. So I brushed it away and told him to ‘shee-shee’ into his diaper. Poor boy must be so confused.
Ryan: Mommy, baby want (to) shee shee
Mommy: You sure?
Mommy: It’s okay, you have your diaper on. You can shee shee into your diaper.
Ryan: I WANT (to) SHEE SHEE!! (he sounded a bit geram)
Mommy: Ok.. you don’t lie to mommy ar. Come.
Ryan: Mommy forgot
(He was probably thinking why is his mommy so forgetful, at one point ask him to pee into the WC, then now asked him to pee on his diaper)
True enough.. he did it again in the toilet. Gosh.. don’t I feel sorry for making bad judgement of my boy.
No accidents, clean dry diaper during his nap, saving me another 3 pull up diapers for the day and he’s also starting to tell us he wants to pee without us probing. Phew…
Update: 13 July
I got another surprise from Ryan this morning. At around 6.45am (Ryan usually wakes up around this time lately), he woke me up saying he wants to ‘shee shee’. I was sooooooo tempted to ask him to pee into his diaper again but my conscience got me. I dragged myself up and off we went to the toilet. As I was taking off his diaper, guess what.. instead of stinky stained wet diaper, what greeted me was another clean dry diaper! He actually held his pee for more than 9 hours? Fluke shot? We’ll see tonight.
….. it’s actually quite tiring having to bring a kiddo to the washroom so many times a day.. but….but.. I guess it’s all part and parcel of parenthood and the end of the day it’s gonna be all worth it eh. *beaming*
