I never intended to be one of those Mommybloggers that went on and on about the bathroom habits of her children, but since my twins are almost three years old and nowhere near potty trained I have become obsessed. I think about the toilet all of the time. (Oh wow. I wonder how many hits I will get from typing that?)
Anyway… when I went to pick The Squad up from preschool today, both of the teachers (they are in the same class, but they have two teachers) were very excited to tell me what a great day Claudia had. See, Claudia is the kids that cries every single day when I drop her off. She is the kid that refuses to eat snack. She is the kid that only cheers up in the last 45 minutes of a three hour class. She is the only kid that cries every time the school director comes in to the classroom. (We’re still trying to figure that one out.)
The teachers said that today, Claudia cheered up in the first 10 minutes. She sang songs, she participated in the group activities, she chatted with her teachers, she ate snack (usually she will only eat snack if I am the parent co-opping that day) with the rest of the class and she peed in the potty.
(sound of a needle scratching across the record)
Did you just say she peed in the potty?
I could not believe my ears. My daughter peed in the potty IN A PUBLIC RESTROOM. I was so proud I almost exploded. I guess her teachers assumed that this is something she has done at home before. Ever. Well, okay, she did once, but it was about six or eight months ago and I think it was a total fluke.
Thanks teachers! Should I buy them gifts? Do you think she peed in the potty due to peer pressure? I hope so. Should I buy the other children gifts? Do you think any of this will rub off on the boy?
I guess I’m off to Target to buy the the thing that Claudia desires the most. (right after sleeping in my bed every night and bossing me around all day long)
