We spent a month potty training our 3-year-old Izaiah. He was peeing and pooping on the toilet. All was glorious. He was given praise and gummies. Life was happy.
Then the stomach bug hit.
For 2 weeks, Izaiah had a sick stomach resulting in us throwing a pull-up on him as it was easier than him attempting to make it to the toilet. (Note: There is nothing grosser than cleaning a trail of poo off of your floors.) The stomach bug wouldn’t quit, the poor thing was in agony until he finally got some relief this past week.
It’s funny what 2 weeks will do. The 4 weeks we spent potty training, well. He is acting like he forgot all of that potty nonsense. We are back to square one. He is again running around naked and peeing everywhere. There may have even been a turd left in a unexpected place in the house. I’m ready to cry, but I can’t as the kid who I got to wear underwear today, he just peed himself.
Looks like I’ll be going to the store this evening, buying cupcakes, and starting the potty training bribery all over again. WAH!
