Babyham is constantly trying to get to the toilet. No, he's not a potty training prodigy, he just knows its forbidden and he wants to play in the toilet water. He is always checking to see if the bathroom door has been left open and every now and then he gets lucky. I bought a childproofing kit for the toilet lid but quite frankly it was adult proof too and I never could figure out how to use it. Not to mention, we have a five year old in the house and so we try to make going potty as hassle-free as possible for obvious reasons. This toilet lock lasted about 5 minutes and was then removed and thrown in the trash
Today Abe was able to slip away for a moment and to his delight the bathroom door had been left wide open. He shut the door behind himself for privacy and literally jumped in. When I caught him in there a few minutes later he was frantically trying to get all of his body into the toilet and trying to shut the lid onto himself. He was not going to take this opportunity for granted. He was determined to squeeze every ounce of fun out of the experience. Yes, it is a little gross (don't worry the toilet was just cleaned) but I had to take a picture.
I will never understand why the toilet is so alluring to kids except for its intended purpose. He loves to splash in it, to flush it, to put things in it, to climb on it and to get inside of it, but he has no interest in peeing into it.
