I think sensible parents stay home when they are potty training. Trust me I know I was not brave but stupid. Yet with this sunny weather who wants to stay home and for some reason I thought this was a good week to start potty training! Actually I realise I just don't have it in me to be stuck at home no matter what we are getting up to. So we set off then for a day out in Stirling. I figure that I will always have access to some bush we can hide behind with the potty so we will be safe. We did have a wee and the dreaded poo accident but overall I must say I survived the day. It started with a walk around the loch at the university. We collected stones to throw into the loch and then to my astonishment he actually started to build something with sticks. I'm afraid I am still waiting to tick den building off the list and only heard whispers of a tunnel or bridge as the sticks were being collected.
After the picnic and ice cream I found a nice shady spot while the wee man slept. Then we headed to Kings Park that afternoon where it was all about playing in the sand, doing a bit of trampoline jumping and scaring mummy by climbing to significant heights and go down rather long slides.
All in all it was a successful day for my country kid and I will save the whole potty training debacle for another post. That is if I am every brave enough to share the subject of poo.
