We went on a family vacation to New Hampshire in the beginning of July. The entire trip, Harrison was asking to use the potty. I was fine with it at the hotel (I think that potty was clean), but at the public beach, I was not fine with it (I KNEW that potty as not clean). We talked for a few days about how when we got home he was ready to be a big boy. He literally told be he was ready. I told him that if he learned to use the bathroom like a big boy, I would get him a fish....I mean, what is one more living thing around here :)
So, we got home and settled on a Sunday and Monday we hit the ground running. Day one was tough. Enough accidents that I questioned if this was a good idea. But by Wednesday, Harrison was dry all day! It was amazing how quickly he caught on. By Friday, I was so proud of my boy that we packed up and made a trip to Feeders Supply.
Harrison got to pick out his fish all by himself. He picked a blue Beta fish and named him "Orange". And yes, my son does know his colors. Here is his reasoning....Elmo has a fish named Dorthy and Dorthy is orange. Therefore, he wanted to name his fish "Orange". I could never tell you how much I love this kid and all of his
I think we are both pretty proud!
