So if you have been following my other sagas not associated with toddler dinners, you will know we are potty training. Yeah. Fun. Well our newest journey has now become our biggest toddler dinner hurdle. Who knew?
We try to make him go before dinner. Sometimes he goes willingly and sometimes it is pulling teeth. Then once he starts to get bored with his plate, he asks to potty. One night, it was just me and him and he asked 4 times while we were at the table. It is maddening. We can’t tell him no because of course that time is gonna result in an accident. Then we just feel like assholes.
Then to make this worse, try going out to eat. We went to the bathroom at the taco place 3 times in 30 minutes the other night. Nothing like laser towels to derail dinner (he actually ate really well and was behaved so I can’t complain too much..but I’m pregnant and like to eat my dinner instead of transport a toddler).
So does this happen to you, internets? How do you handle the constant requests but not derail potty training and end up with wet pants?
