So as many of you know, our son Keller has been potty training. For some in the parenting world, you may think that we are running behind schedule...but you are entitled to you opinion. Anyway, the point is, we have spent the majority of the summer in this process. But let me stop right there and say this; when I type the word we, I should really state that it was my amazing wife that had to do the majority of the work since I had to work. I LOVE YOU BABE! Back to the story...we have made a lot of progress, and for that we are extremely proud of our son. At the same time, we are not out of the woods. At this point in the game, we know that he can do it...it is just a matter of him taking time out of his busy schedule to go to the bathroom.
So this weekend, we decided to go to our favorite Mexican food restaurant...which as the best queso dip ever! Mind you, we are always on alert when we are out in public with Keller, because potty accidents can still happen and do happen. Once we got settled into our booth, I had another "What are you known for?" moment with our server/waitress. Before I could order my drink, she said,"You want Sweet Tea! I remember you! You drink a lot of Sweet Tea!" I guess I could have been remembered for worse...Oh wait, read the previous blog!!!!!! HA
Anyway, she leaves and I decided to take Keller to the bathroom. Of course you have to be creative to get him to go...so the conversation went something like this:
Me: Keller, do you need to go potty?
Keller: No Daddy, I don't need to go potty!
Me: I think you do. But you know what? Daddy needs to go potty! Do you want to help him?
Keller: Oh sure! I can help!!!
So we get up and head to the bathroom. As we are walking, this mighty 3 year old voice states: "Hey everyone, I will be right back. I have to help my dad go potty!" Of course, I stopped in my tracks and looked at him as he was making this statement to anyone that would hear...which included two couples and a large group of 10. The people were very supportive of his new venture and cheered him along the way! It is moments like these that I cherish!
