In our potty training efforts today, as we stood above the potty and waited for action, Tucker said, "Oh, the potty is so sad today."
"The potty is sad? Why?"
"He misses his mommy."
I could have told him that the potty is sad because Tucker won't use it.
But instead, I let creativity live in the moment. After all, I didn't even know a potty has a mommy, let alone the ability to miss her.
