My twins are 2 1/2. They’ve showed potty training readiness signs for a while now but I haven’t wanted to push them. I’ve basically taken their lead on the potty training endeavor because I’m not trying to win any potty related mom wars of how fast my boys conquered the toilet. It’s not a race. I trust that they’ll learn when they’re ready and I’d be willing to bet money they won’t go to college still in diapers.
So we’re taking our time.
But in the last few weeks, the boys have really become much more interested and I feel they are ready for me to get more serious about it all. So we bought the big boy underwear and we dove right in. We’ve been going strong for a few weeks now and they’re really doing great!
When we are at home, most of the time they’re in underwear all day. We still have occasional accidents and for some reason, trying to get them to poop on the potty is like asking them to stick their hineys in a shredder, but we’re getting there.
Like most all kids in the population, my potty training big boys have become huge Frozen fans. Despite their love of Elsa, we went with super hero underwear, and they love them. Not quite as much as they love the song “Let It Go,” but it’s close.
Today they were rocking out to “their movie” in between potty breaks and it hit me how easy it’d be to turn that song into a potty training related soundtrack.
So without further ado, I give you…
Let It Flow(inspired by Frozen and the joys of potty training boys).
The pee glows bright on the toilet tonight,
Not a clean spot to be seen.
A kingdom of potty trainers,
And it looks like I’m the queen
The stomach’s growling with this poop they keep inside.
Couldn’t keep it in, Heaven knows they tried.
Don’t hold it in
Don’t keep that pee
Use the toilet, and please lift up that seat.
Whenever you feel
You need to go,
Please let me know!
Let it Flow, Let if flow
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it flow, Let it flow
Try to keep it off the floor
I don’t care
How much time it takes,
Let the fluids flow
The mess never bothered me anyway.
It’s funny how a diaper
makes everything seem small;
And the pee that once controlled me,
Is now spewed all on the walls.
It’s time to see what they can do
To test my limits and break through
No dipes, no wipes, no breaks for me
Let it flow, let it flow
It’s time to get rid of dipes,
Let it flow, let it flow,
They just might see me cry.
Here they stand,
And here they spray
Let the fluids flow!
The pee drops flurry through the air into the ground,
They missed the cue and now there’s pee stained footprints all around.
My last nerve crystalizes like an icy blast,
We’re never going back;
The diaper’s in the past!
Let it flow, let it flow
Don’t forget to shake it off.
Now let go, now let go
No, your penis won’t fall off.
Here I stand
Any time of day;
Let the fluids flow,
That mess never bothered me anyway!
How has your potty training experience been? If it’s been difficult, maybe this little song will help lighten the load! (Pun intended!)
Happy potty training!
