We bought Elmo’s Potty Time last spring, hoping it might interest Monkey and jump start our potty training efforts. It would not be an understatement to say that Monkey hated this DVD. He wouldn’t even watch it long enough to see Elmo, as soon as he heard Elmo’s voice he would shut the DVD off and/or run from the room yelling “No! No! No!”
Over the last week Monkey started to soften toward the DVD and now he’s full out obsessed with it. I hear “Emmo!” constantly. I am more than willing to turn it on upon request so he has seen this DVD about 6,000 times this weekend.
Then on Sunday night, Monkey stripped off his diaper again (in full view this time) and, after throwing it in the garbage, disappeared into his bedroom. He returned a few minutes later carrying a pair of the long ignored “Cars” underwear I had bought months ago. He then stood and got them 1/2 way on before he asked for help. What the heck has gotten into this kid?
We’ll take it but sometimes he makes my head spin!
