Potty Training Limericks
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.
