It was an accident really. I thought he was a nice transsexual. I had no idea he was homeless until hospital security told me.. or that I was taking him to get drugs. You should have heard my honey screaming when he found out where I had been and with whom. :D


edited to add... My honey NEVER screams at me.. this was an unusual circumstance... so I forgave him.
That is just hysterical!

I agree. Present the potty as something special even before he starts training. That's what I did with mine too. I set it up right next to the regular toilet, and every time one of us used it, we invited the little one to sit on theirs too.

This is day 3 of actively potty-training my youngest (22 months), and she's showing a lot of progress. It's the first day she's had zero accidents. But of course, I have her sitting on it every 5 minutes without fail... so tedious!! I kept thinking we should just wait until she's a little older, but every time I was about to give up, we'd have a breakthrough and persevere. So *hopefully* this is it! My other daughter trained at 22 months also, but my son was closer to 24 (which is actually a huge difference in terms of readiness at that age, I think).
My oldest was trained by 2.5, and I don't see my little one being any sooner than that either, but you never know. I am not going to rush it or stress, no deadlines here. :) Good luck with your littlest girl, sounds like she's on a roll!

That same trip into the big city.. (my honey was in the hospital.. he's the city boy.. I was left to my own good judgment while he recuperated. ;) ) In the first 3 days, I was grabbed my another homeless man carrying his property on his back... on my rear end.. and almost made friends with a man who later in the conversation reveled his was a sex offender and along with my drug trafficking, I realized I needed to stay in the room with him. :p Yep.. not so street smart.

This is a great idea. I like to get to know and understand me better, and I also believe that each self-presentation is a very useful psychological exercise that allows you to understand your condition, self-esteem and what problems you are suppressing. I recently found Pooh Pathology Test. While this may seem like a fun test to many, it's a pretty accurate description of a person. I think it might be of interest to someone on this forum.
