You, too, can enjoy 10 easy steps to dryness! Because I said so!
1) Sing the joys of the potty to your toddler. Celebrate every time older sister uses the facilities.
2) Throw a party every time said toddler deigns to park his tush on the seat.
3) Buy toddler a private jet once he starts using the potty reliably.
4) Work through the “must visit every bathroom every five minutes” stage with gritted teeth and remind oneself how much you don’t miss diapers.
5) After 6 months or so, casually ask your preschooler if he thinks he might try not peeing several gallons into his pull-up every night.
6) After a year, remind yourself that nighttime training often takes longer, especially with boys. And that’s okay.
7) After a year and a half, tentatively ask the pediatrician if your son is going to be wetting the bed in college.
8) Resign yourself to the nighttime pull-up. Put more money in the therapy fund.
9) Spend $79 on qualifying Huggies products at Amazon during their promotion. Receive 3 cases of pull-ups.
10) Marvel at the child’s sixth sense which causes the arrival of 6 months’ worth of pull-ups to coincide with sudden nighttime dryness for a record number of nights in a row.
