The Other Ending

by bkhoury on December 13, 2010

I swear potty training is going to be the death of me.  It is the thing I like the least about motherhood thus far.  I will not share the details as I’m sure those who have been through it do not want to re-live the pleasantries.  And those who haven’t been through it, well, I’m sure you will be better at it than I am!

I know this is a blog about eating but hey, potty training is part-and-parcel with healthy eating right?  Will, like many children so I’ve heard, was having a hard time getting over the hurdle of putting #2 in the potty.  He would sit on the toilet, and sit, and sit and try really, really hard.  Meanwhile my other poor son was being totally neglected by these 45 minute sessions not to mention I was flat out bored.  To digress, I have to ask myself, “Is it already ingrained in him to have long bathroom stints because he’s a boy?  Should I give him a magazine to read?”

I decided to help the process along a little.  One morning I enlisted Will to help me make a huge pot of oatmeal with cinnamon and LOTS of dried apricots.  I drizzled it with honey and cream and Will devoured three bowls in no time.  Sure enough,  daa dahh!  This sitting was less than 3 minutes!  Oatmeal truly is a comfort food!
