Well I don't actually want to kill the mocking bird. Brief overview first:
For the past two weeks, I have been agressively potty training Juju. Little did I know I didn't need to be so agressive. Who knew a pair of Thomas the train underwear is all the push he needed. Anyways, to help the process, everytime he goes, we cheer and make a big deal outta the whole thing: "YES! and WOOHOO! Go Juju go!"
Now back to the point of this post:
The other day Juju came running into the living room where I was sitting. And this is how it went:
JUJU: "Mama poo poo! Poo poo mama!
ME: "Hold it Juju, hold it!
That's normally how it goes, whether it be pee or poo. So we pull his underwear down, and he sits on the potty.
ME: "2 minutes"
(about a minute later...)
JUJU: "Mama I poo!"
(this is when I go in and he stands up for me to see)
ME: "Woohoo big boy! You poo! Yes!"
Now as I'm taking out the little bucket thing to clean it out, Juju is saying over and over "I poo, I poo." Well as I lift it out of the base, the bucket almost slips outta my hand...
ME: "Oh shit!"
JUJU: "Mama what? Shit?"
ME: "Nothing baby don't say that word."
Well my husbands comes home later that afternoon and asks Juju what we did that day...
JUJU: "Went wamart." (he leaves out the L everytime)
HUBBY: "Did you go to the potty today?"
JUJU: "Oh yes."
HUBBY: "Good job Juju! Daddy big boy! Did you do anything else?"
JUJU: "I shit."
JUJU: "Daddy I shit."
At this point of course my husband looks at me, and I tell him what happened. All he could do was laugh and tell Juju not to say that word anymore.
I mean seriously...guess I have to be more careful with what I say.
