Give Me a P ...
Most of the time Milo has a whole entourage with him when he goes to the bathroom. There’s Neva, his 5 1/2-year-old big sister, full of encouragement, cheering him on as he sits on the big people's toilet. His little sister, 17-month-old Willa, sits beside him on the potty, chanting "Peee, Peee, Peee ... " and Mommy is in there too giving him instructions to point it down. It's quite the circus but somehow Milo gets the job done.
What worries me is that when he goes to the bathroom by himself without his cheerleading crew, he pees on the floor. We’ll find him running around with nothing on and there's a puddle in front of the bathtub. Seems like he doesn't want to go it alone. I'm afraid that he'll never be able to go without 137 people coaxing him on.
So, if you see a little blond fella walking around alone and looking like he might burst, please take him to the bathroom. And bring your friends, lots of 'em.
