i finally had the extra energy to start potty training.. (read:medyo nawalan ang katamaran) it has been surprisingly easy.. i mean, not really easy-easy, but it's not turning out to be as difficult as i expected.. when he's at home, i just remove his diaper and he'll wear his pambahay shorts in the house..
first day, he peed twice on his shorts.. he would look at the puddle on his feet, look up to me and say 'wiwi!'.. (delayed reaction, tsug!).. but we would still run to the toilet and i would tell him to point his pututoy at the potty chair and pretend wiwi, so he'll associate going to the toilet with 'wiwi'..
that same day, while he was eating on his highchair, he suddenly said 'wiwi!' to me.. so i quickly got him and we went to the toilet.. then he stood in front of his potty chair, braced his hands on the arm rests and .. umire! pupu pala! it was so gross getting his pupu from the shower floor nyahaha. but i was sooooo proud of him, because at least, he told me he was gonna poop (well, sorta) and he didn't poop on his high chair!
it's the 3rd day now, and there's been a huuuge progress. today, he only peed once on his shorts.. the rest, he would run to the toilet himself, or he would tell me or his ate lilia 'wiwi!'.. OR i was able to urge him to pee before eating lunch, or before his nap.. (but i still put him in diapers for his naptime.. tonight din, nilagyan ko) kakatuwa.. minsan it takes a few seconds before the wiwi comes.. he would say.. 'ahhhm.. no way?' and then i would open a faucet or make the 'whish whish' sound and that's when he would start peeing.. nag thuthumbs up sign sya after hehe.. ('cause i was like praising him and telling him 'aprub!' everytime he goes potty) kanina rin, when he told me 'wiwi', someone was already using the toilet, so we went outside sa meh laundry area, tapos we urged him to pee there.. kakatawa, he was positioned kasi sa medyo gitna, but he ventured nearer sa wall para dun mag wiwi.. sabi nga ng lola nya 'LALAKE Talaga! kailangan sa pader mag wiwi!'.. it must be some inborn male instinct... walls are for peeing. lol.
the problem now is with the pupu, he doesn't seem to want to sit on his potty chair!.. tonight, he stood infront of the potty chair again para umire.. talagang igigitna pa nya si pututoy sa potty chair as if dun nya ineexpect lumabas hahaha.. well, i'm at a loss.. he doesn't want to sit down..('no way' ng 'no way'!) i guess he'll figure it out someday that when it's #2, you sit. for the meantime, i'm just there.. scooping his poop from the shower floor. eww.
