I am hereby declaring that Kent is potty trained for #1. I will post again when he has mastered #2. Until then, I will continue to have to wash out multiple pairs of super hero underwear a day.
As far as Parker goes, it seems as if he has been stricken with an odd phobia. I have been trying to work with him on his aim in the bathroom. Everyday I have to get down on my hands and knees and wipe around the toilet base, the floor, and even the wall. He has issues hitting the target. I was explaining to him the necessity of directing the firearm down, as to minimize the mess made elsewhere. He told me that is not possible for him because he only has two hands. According to Parker, he has to hold the seat up with one hand, and his shirt up with the other. I then proceeded to show my almost five year old, that the seat will stay up on its own, therefore freeing the use of one hand. Negative. Parker said that he is too scared of the seat falling down and hurting his fragile anatomy, so he makes sure it doesn't by holding it in an upright stable position. Is that a normal fear for little boys? I honestly have no idea.
