ARRRRR! Me a Pirate!

So I am in the process of potty training the 2 year old.  We've got the pee down.  Well sort of as long as I tell bribe him to go sit on the potty every hour or so.  The poop not so much.  We've had a couple successful moments, followed by many high fives, candies and hip hip hooray's.  But for the most part it has been an utter mess.  I will spare you all the horror stories..

Tonight, just like any other night I sent Q to washroom.  He wanted cheesies and obviously I used this opportunity to my advantage.  GO MAKE PEE OR THERE ARE NO CHEESIES.  He willingly obliges and then proceeds to exit the washroom like this:

Tighty whities over his head, dancing and singing ARRRRRRR! Me a pirate, ARRRRRRR! Me a pirate ARRRRRRR! Me a pirate  His ear to ear grin shows how totally proud and amused Q is with himself.  The trick is not to laugh too much or this incident will happen EVERY single time he goes to the washroom.  If I send him about every hour or so, well you do the math!

So we had our little laugh, took a picture to remember the occasion and he sat down on the couch to eat cheesies.


  1. I woulda lost it. The kid would be entertaining dates 20 years later with "AAAAARRGGHH!! Me a Pirate!" dances if I had been there laughing my ass off.
