Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday: Potty Talk

We aren't at that point
We will be there soon enough
Then more money saved
J isn't at the point of potty training yet. Soon enough though. 20 months and he knows when he's got a full diaper ;)

Now I need to go
Will there ever be a time
I can go alone
If you are a mother, or father of a toddler, you know this all too well. I'm not sure of the last time I actually went to the bathroom by myself. There will be a day again...I'm sure of it.

Off to the potty
Can we make it there in time
A prize if you go
When I was potty training my oldest, all he ever wanted was the prize if he was successful. Stickers, a new little $1 store toy, something to get him to go. We will do this again....all over again, 17 years later.

To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:

1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. What's a haiku, you ask? Click here.

2. Sign the Mister Linky below or at Jennifer's blog with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your generic blog URL). DON'T sign unless you have a haiku this week. If you need help with this, contact Jennifer or myself.

3. Pick up a Haiku Friday button to display on the post or in your sidebar by clicking the button at the top.

REMEMBER: Do not post your link unless you have a haiku this week! We will delete any links without haiku!

I hate hate hated potty training.

Nicely haiku'd even if it does sound like it will be so much easier once this little lesson has been learned already. :)

Yep, we're potty training too. I hear you. It sucks.

We did something similar with a potty chart where my son could earn new books. It got to the point where he was earning a book a day. LOL!!

Good luck with the training!
