Everyone of us have preference on something. It could be clothes, foods, hobbies but Kenji boy only prefer the conventional potty for his business. He is very particular on his favorite potty and would only pass motion on it. We was at Menglembu (MIL’s house) last week, and forgot to bring his potty back. Since we do not wish to travel back, we try to get by with the potty we have at the MIL’s house.
The potty we have in the house is the potty he used for his business when he is a baby (before 8 month’s old). We hope that he will use this for a couple of days before we head home. Everything is going well until his potty time. He sit on it, looked at us, stand up and start running away. He run and run without his pant, and I have to chase him and get him back on his potty. I put him onto the potty again, and again he refused and finally broken into tears. Haih…
I was thinking to myself. He had been using this potty when he was a baby. Why couldn’t he use it just for a couple of days. I just let him be since both me and wifey can’t do much about it. I told wifey that we will go home to get his potty if he still refused to pass motion that day.
Evening came, and we get him on his potty after his meal again. And again, he ran away. We lost hope and decided to pack for home, when MIL suddenly came to us with his favorite potty. We were surprised, and found that that she is borrowing it from her neighbour who happened to use the same type of potty. Oh, we are so lucky!
We quickly get Kenji boy onto his potty, and within a minute he sat down on it and voila, the job is done. Wifey and I could not really comprehend why he have to use this potty. If he do not get his potty during his business time, he would rather pass it on the diapers or pants rather than on an unknown potty.
We bought a new one for him last month as we think that he has outgrown the existing one. The new one is bigger in size, and looks like a stool for children. He can even rest his back on it. Unfortunately, whenever we put him onto this new potty, he will refused, and run away. We are running out of idea, and had to let him do what he want for the moment. The downside is we had to bring along his favorite potty whenever we go 😦
