Fundamental Misconception

This morning:

Me: "Tate, we're going to start really potty training this week. You're going to stop going pee pee in your diaper and start going pee pee in the potty all the time!"

Tate: (Very enthusiastically) "Yeah!"

I am pleased to report that Tate then peed on the potty without me prompting him, he told me he had to go, so we went. He got his customary M&M as a reward.

After Naptime:

Tate: "Pee pee! Pee Pee! No diaper. MMMMMMMAAAAAMMMMMMMMMAAAAAA!"

Me: (Walking into his room) "Ok Buddy, do you need to go pee pee in the...Whoa! What happened?"

Tate: (Proudly holding his dry diaper in his hands, standing in the middle of his urine soaked bed,) "Mama, pee pee no diaper. Yay!"

Me: Wow son! Apparently there has been a fundamental misconception in your understanding of potty training. We'll work on that, won't we?

Tate: (Optimistically) Yeah!
