The other day I was at the pharmacy buying a plethera of cold meds to nurse my
slow death sinus infection. Harper has a snot face too, so even though they call whatever I have a sinus infection, I wonder otherwise, but I’m not a doctor. Then I spotted a potty. Impulse buy.
She has been handing me diapers when she needs to be changed, and just started to walk, so I thought I would at least bring it home and see if there was a learning opportunity heading my way. I sat her on it, AND SHE PEED. She’s done it several other times this week too! I keep saying “that was probably an accident”, but maybe it’s not, and maybe she is learning! She doesn’t hate it, so that’s good. If she’s not ready, I can just put it up and bring it back out later, no big deal.
ANYWAYS, yesterday I had fed her and decided I needed to iron a few of John’s shirts, so I put on the mickey mouse club and went in the neighboring room to iron. I hear the screams of death within 2 minutes. I hurdle 2 baby gates (the way our house is set up we have to have 2 gates at the top of our stairs because that’s what separates our rooms.)
I SEE THIS:
And like any good parent I RAN back into the other room and grabbed my phone to take a picture.
It was really funny.
Then I realized that it wouldn’t fit back over her top OR her bottom.
HOW DID SHE GET IN THERE?!!??!
I try to shimmy it down her waist. No way.
So then I try to go up with it and she acts like I’m killing her.
Then I start to panic a little. What do you do when your kid gets stuck in a toilet???
Do I have to go to the fire department to borrow their jaws of life?????? Call 911 and ask them to bring butter to grease her up???
Will they report me?? Have case workers visit us monthly to make sure she’s not stuck in the ceiling fan?
I finally figure out if I collapse her arm/shoulder a little, the rest should come out. It was like delivering a baby. So, maybe I am a doctor now.
Just send me a message if you need help birthing your kid from a toilet.
