Jane Yolan and Mark Teague tell how dinosaur gets well soon.

Jane Yolan and Mark Teague tell how dinosaur
gets well soon.

Three year old saw it
once; heard it once; kept the rhyme!
THINK: make a big stink

Today on Face Time, Oliver reminded me that his Mom had the flu. And that the dinosaur doesn’t make a “big stink.” This is a timely phenomena since he is navigating from diapers to using the toilet.
So he memorized the phrase from Yolan’s book: “Does he make a big stink? Is that what you think?” Every time he quotes the book, his family applauds for the young poet. All the acknowledgment is just more encouragement. His favorite at 2 was “poop poop toot toot”!

Riddle#5 (Privy)

Potty Introduction From 4 year old to 2 year old

Potty Introduction From 4 year old to 2 year old

Hush-
hush
no more!
Privy to the
toilet: overt, inside
throne of the intimate unconcealed two:
innate, well-rounded, sovereign prince and princess “private talk.”

Is this a fib?

Red Hair Red Hair!

Rally Call From the Three Year Old

“Red Hair Red Hair
Please come here!”
I’m waiting on the toilet.

“Red hair Red Hair
Wipe my butt!”
I’m waiting on the toilet.

“Red Hair Red Hair”
See me proud!
I’ve learned to use the toilet!
