The Potty Song

ToiletWe have been working with my two-year-old to get him potty trained, and he’s taking quite well to it. However, he likes to cry out “Poop-poo, potty!” which prompts one of us to drop what we’re doing, snatch him up and rush him to the bathroom–knocking over chairs, tables and whatever else is in our way–while coaching him to “waitwaitwaitwait!” Then we set up the toddler toilet seat and put him on it, at which point he immediately looks up at us with his big hazel eyes, wriggles his hands (sign language for “all done”) and says “All done…play?” He does this once or twice every five to ten minutes for about an hour until he finally goes (if we’re lucky) in the toilet.

To remedy this problem, my wife brilliantly suggested we make up a “potty song” that lasts at least thirty seconds. That way, he might be compelled to sit on the toilet for a long enough time for something to actually happen.

She asked me to come up with a jingle…

…this is what popped into my head:

(to the tune of “Octopus’ Garden” by the Beatles)

I’d like to pee in the pott-ee

For that one good chance to flush it all away

It will be warm–this big shit storm

Cuz I’ve been eating fiber every day

Give it a try and you will see-ee just how much fun the potty can be!

I’d like to pee in the potty

For that one good chance to flush it all away

Needless to say, we went with her jingle, though now I find myself singing this under my breath whenever I’m on the can.

Don’t judge me :).
