A Few Wee Questions

Mummy, mummy, look! Why am I wet? Because you’re still learning to squat on the toilet. Click To Tweet

Mummy, mummy, look! Why am I wet?
Because you’re still learning to squat on the toilet.
But when do I squat? Mummy I don’t always know.
Your bottom belly says when it’s time to go.
How’s it tell me? What does bottom belly say?
It gives a feeling you’ll recognize one day.
I have to feel it? So it doesn’t speak?
No. If only; potty training would take one week.
So I feel something and then I must go?
It’s trial and error at first, just let me know.
Bottom belly, bottom belly. Speak to me please.
Then be ready to control it, with a tight squeeze.
Mummy what will it be, a pooh or a wee?
There’s a different feeling for each, so you’ll tell me.

    Aw I love this – it’s made me think about it all from the child’s point of view – it must be such a confusing time for their little minds. This was funny and heartwarming in equal measure x #TwinklyTuesday

    • Thank you. I think my husband is also confused. I might need to write one for him. This morning she did a pooh, his first. Him ‘How do I know when she’s finished?’ then ‘How do I get her back to the mat?’ I think he thought there’s a lot more to it.

        Hahaha!! There’s a thought – perhaps husbands need training on potty training! Haha love it! I must say I really enjoy your poems- they’re light and easy to read but I always feel like they have so much depth and thought behind them – sorry if that sounds cheesy! x

    • Haha. We started early, so she’s going by routine at the moment but it’s the weirdest thing to teach someone to essentially go over a bowl. I made a rhyme to flush the pooh away and now she wants to flush, even when there’s nothing in the toilet (all the time). I’m clueless and end up laughing at how much energy I’ve invested in pooh and wee.

  3. Aww this is a really cute poem! I love it! It’s the kind of thing I feel like should be cross stitched and hung on the back of the toilet door! #stayclassymama

  4. We’ve just come through potty training for the second time and it really is so tricky to try and explain the feeling isn’t it? Lovely poem for those potty training days. Thanks for linking to #DreamTeam x
