You Gotta' Fight for Your Right to Potty

Potty training

Potty training. Few things make me shudder like seeing my wife leave for work on a Saturday while our 2-year-old daughter sits in the family room watching TV with absolutely no pants on whatsoever.

I try to influence her telepathically..."No accidents, no accidents, no accidents."

She approaches our leather sofa.

"No, no, honey, I saved this special spot on the floor JUST for you," I say.

It seems to be working.

The other day as we sat eating brunch at a local Dunkin' Donuts, our 2-year-old announced that she had to "go potty."

My wife got up and took her.

About 5 minutes later, our daughter came flying across the crowded shop shouting proudly at the top of her lungs, "DADDY, DADDY, I WENT PEE PEE IN THE POTTY!!!"

She then received a rousing ovation from every single patron in the restaurant as SuperMom and I exchanged embarrassed glances.
