I Taught my Son to Double-Dip

It’s amazing what children will pick up and how fast they’ll do it. My son was sampling the pizza crust last night (my DH doesn’t like to eat it with the pizza and will dip it later) and after biting two crusts I thought that it might be best just to dunk it in the marinara sauce we had with our bread sticks and let him have it that way. Not only did he love it, but he also kept dunking and biting through the entire crust.

Although I’m still not sure why he wanted the crust instead of another piece of pizza.

We’re also working on potty training, which is interesting. So far our success mostly consists of Snort telling us right after he’s peed in his diaper, sitting on his potty chair for a bit, and then flushing the toilet. Someone suggested that it might help to put him in big boy undies instead of a diaper, but first we need to learn the sign for potty. I think he’ll probably pick it up quickly and be less frustrated with it than if we tried to get him to actually use a spoken word. He’s right where he should be on speech according to the milestones, but he’s really not as advanced as I somehow expected. Of course, a few days ago I asked if he wanted mac and cheese and he said, “Mmm, cheese! Uh-oh, hot-hot!” So he’s getting there.

I’m still working on the sheepie. I’ll update about that later when I have something to really say about it.
