One day last July, the girls were supposed to be having quiet time.
All of a sudden, I hear, ‘Uh oh, Uh oh, UH OH.’ With each uh-oh, she gets a little louder and sounds more panicked. I book it up the stairs as fast as I can and bust into their room.
To my surprise, there is pee in and around the potty in their room. They had been potty trained for about 9 months at this point, but we keep a little potty in their room for nap times or for the middle of the night. I look at Kinley who even has some on her pants and I ask, ‘What happened? How did you get pee everywhere?’ As her eyes get a little extra big she says, ‘Because I was trying to pee just like daddy’.
At least her intentions were pure. We reviewed the proper posture for going pee and thankfully haven’t had any issues since.
