Potty Training: A summary
Laundry, toilet paper, repetition, gritted teeth, hand washing, naked kid, praise, suppressed frustration, tiny panties (not the Victoria's Secret kind of tiny panties), ridiculous dancing upon successful pottying, more hand washing, endless discussion of elimination and anatomy vocabulary, excited phone calls to grandparents, still more hand washing.
Repeat aforementioned cycle about 5-6 times in one day. Put child to bed--in a diaper--and retreat to kitchen. Locate giant bottle of vodka. Swill until your eyeballs float.
