His request to potty
   Takes me by surprise
He tugs at his diaper
   Ready for a change

Looks at books to guide him
   Through his first attempts
Stepping stool progression
    Flushing with results

  1. Yes, Matthew finally started potty training. Yes, I decided to write a poem about it…
    What? Why not?

      I see no problem with it….I wanted to shout it from the rooftops when Tim and Amy started potty training!!!!!

    That is incredible! Especially since he was the initiator. Congratulations!

    Everyone always told us that kids will learn when they’re ready. We’d also heard that kiddos on the severe side of the Autism spectrum struggle with this well into grade school. Although we’re prepared for many more years of diapers, we are thrilled by Matthew’s spontaneous decision to try going pee-pee in the potty! For those of you who are interested, the book is called “It’s Potty Time (for Boys)” by Ron Berry. It has a big button on it that makes a flushing sound!
