09:30 am: a story I thought would be over by now
Potty. Oy.

Teddy doesn't like going poop in anyone's potty but our own. (He even has a preference for a specific potty at home, but will use any of them if necessary.) I suspect most people prefer pooping in their own potties, but most people get over it when they need to go.


So... We've been at my folks' house in Oak Bluffs and we have had Potty Issues.

Specifically, he's been holding it in.

"I don't want to go!" he wails. "I'm afraid of the smell!"

No matter how many times we reassure him that the smell won't be any different from the smell at home, that we will flush immediately, that we will spray anti-stinky, he's worried. I finally gave him a tiny lesson in what your large intestine does to poop, complete with its tiny, high-pitched voice claiming "I want more water! Gimme more water!" When warned that it will only get more difficult, and potentially painful, to poop if he doesn't go when he needs to, he pooped. I had to hold him the whole time, and coach him through pushing, but he pooped.


We're heading home in a few hours, whereupon I expect regular pooping to recommence.
