We’ve been trying to toilet train our son for a while. We tried a gentle approach of positive encouragement, but he simply wasn’t interested. Friends of ours told us that they just took the diapers away one day. Jen thought this was a good idea. I had my doubts, but she convinced me to do it.
Jen’s working at the hospital all weekend. It’s been my worse nightmare. He is simply peeing everywhere. This morning I knew he had to go. I think he was in pain. He was running around crying. I tried to put him on his potty, but he threw a tantrum. Then peed all over the wall. We ventured out to a park, but he peed all over the equipment.
He gets the concept, he is just angry about it. I am fondly remembering the harsh parenting techniques of my childhood.
I am pretty resentful. Plus, I am dieting and I am hungry. I am almost looking forward to going to work for the first time tomorrow. Arraignments have to be more fun than this.
