We’ve been trying to tell Jude that using the potty is the new cool thing to do. He’s not quite convinced. But he will usually attempt to use the potty before his bath. Last night, he was on the potty and I was trying to make the connection that he can control his bladder muscles. So, I said, “Okay, so you think in your brain, peepee come out now.”
Jude points to his head (since that is what I am modeling) and repeats the phrase. Nothing happens. He tries again with total concentration, but again no results.
With utter disappointment, he looks at me and down towards the potty and says, “It’s broken!” with total heartbreak.
