The Prophecy of Pee

By: Rochelle Rickoff Wilensky

It’s Day 7 of potty training a two-year-old. Last night, she refused to sit on the potty 8 times, peed all over herself, slipped in her own pee, fell on her rear, and then screamed like a banchi as I burst out laughing at her. Today, absolutely zero pee even made it into the potty. Telling toddlers to put their bodily waste into a potty as they scream “No! Myself! Library!” is like trying to force your dog to pee outside when it’s raining. The dog – or kid – may lift a leg, but “All done!” is merely overture.
