Yesterday, as I sat praying that my 3rd cup of coffee would stir a little somethin’ up in the ol’ bowels, I caught a story on the Today Show that once again sort of shocked me. Ironically, it was about a woman who runs a potty training program out of her house called “Booty Camp.” I won’t go in to a lot of detail about this woman’s methods, but I will say this: Bitch Ca-Razy! Okay. Literally imagine 3 year olds, with their pants DOWN, sitting next to each other on beginner potties in a ROW, in THE MIDDLE of some lady’s kitchen. Their parents are watching and being given “tools” to help encourage and train their kids to use the potties. Meanwhile, the lady gives the children the saltiest, sweetest, shittiest (no pun intended) food and drink you can imagine because she claims the salt and sugar will speed their bladder and “soften their bowels.” Some leave successful, some leave with crap still in their pants, and some leave with crap on the floor (literally, they have to help clean their mess off the floor if they have an accident).

I don’t know. Potty training seems like something that should be done at home or at preschool where a child’s “potty” readiness is treated on an individual basis. Fortunately, we’re ways away from having to think about potty training Baby-Ko. Besides, Baby-Ko has his own system in place and has created his own personal little bathroom and toilet area: The Evenflo ExerSaucer, a.k.a. The Poop Machine. I don’t know what it is, but EVERY TIME we put Baby-Ko into it, without fail, he poops! If they only made a machine like that for adults, I’d sure cut out A LOT of caffeine….

Behold BABY-KO & THE POOP MACHINE. Oh, and the very first picture ever posted on my blog…

Mission Accomplished!
