Potty Training Limericks

Updated on April 30, 2016

My wife and I call it the dark times

no longer to deal with diaper mines

the potty is set up

nearby with rag and mop

for all the accidental poop crimes.

We rehearse with our toddler the moves

praying his dance is to potty grooves

when we are half asleep

a pile begins to seep

from our feet we will have to remove.

We have tried the route of bribery

he is excited for all the candy

many times they are just fakes

he still hides his mistakes

through the smiles of mommy and daddy.

Our pets are catching up on the scheme

please no more pooping or peeing

soon we will be civil

now I have had my fill

when will my son be part of the team.

Once it is past we never go back

a time when we threw out diaper sack

we wear underwear now

no more smells raised eyebrow

except an occasional flashback.

      Absolutely delightful. Perhaps mom and dad doing a cheerleader routine in front of the potty???

      One of those things we have to go through when we have the joy of small children, but how proud we are when we help them to succeed. Thanks for the memory and fun way of writing about it.

      Oh, thank you. I was worried that this had too much "potty humor." Jamie
