You know you’re potty training (your child) when…
- You realize you’ll be seeing the liquid from that snack-time orange again—probably soaked into your carpet or clothing—in the very near future.
- You perfect your towel free-throw toss into your rapidly-filling washer.
- You fear leaving the room and strain your ears for that little “uh oh!”
You thank Jesus that pee is sterile.
- You’ve never cheered louder for someone’s biological function.
- You praise God you don’t have to teach your child how to pee.
- Your go-to conversation with fellow adults revolves around how many times your child successfully made it to the potty. And, yes, you use the word “potty” repeatedly.
- You have a plastic toilet, a change of clothes (for you and your child), and a roll of paper towels in your car for a 15-minute errand.
- You rationalize a possible grocery-store accident with “Eh, I’m sure mine wouldn’t be the first kid to leave a puddle in the aisle.”
- You don’t bother to change your kid out of her pjs or yourself out of your sleepwear when taking your older child to school (true story).
