I learn something every day.....







My husband and I read somewhere that to help your kids during potty training you can try to "potty train" one of their stuffed animals. We both agreed this would be a good technique for us since Caiden carries around "Bunny" everywhere he goes. Well, tonight I decided to put a diaper on Bunny and let him know that when he needed to go potty he should let me know and I would take him to the bathroom. This idea worked great for a while! Caiden thought it was hilarious that Bunny had a diaper on so he decided he needed pajamas on too. Before I knew it Bunny was dressed in pjs and a ball cap and was hanging out with us just like a human. Everything sounds great right? Wrong. What I didn't think about was the fact that Bunny might tell Caiden he had to go potty instead of me. I found this out when I heard Caiden take him into the bathroom and shove him in the toilet. As if this wasn't bad enough it was right at 7:30 and Caiden's bed time is 8:00. I managed to give Bunny a good sponge bath with woolite then a power fluff in the dryer and he came out good as new. Whew, thank goodness! I don't know what we would do without Bunny.

Ha! That is hilarious. I also find it amusing that Caiden "names" his stuffed animals the same way Skyler does. She has "Pink Bear." Very original and creative naming =)
