No, I Am Not Through With Diapers

Well, the interest has waned. Brandon showed no interest in UNDERPANTS. I succumb to peer pressure and say "underpants." But to be honest, after potty training only a girl, panties just came out naturally. :-)

I have no desire to have my manly son express his feminine side, despite, as Mahina pointed out, his wearing Alexis's Princess tank top over his T-shirt to swimming one day. I tried to remove it, but he protested.

He likes to play with Alexis's Dora castle, but his idea of fun is trying to fly his cars through the window or cram them inside the castle. So I have no fear of his future manliness. :-)

Am I Through With Diapers?

Tonight Brandon said, out of the blue, that he wanted to wear panties. I couldn't understand what he said, so he runs upstairs and comes down with some old Woody panties we'd inherited from someone and his pajamas!

I put them on and he has stayed dry so far. I have spent the better part of the past hour on the bathroom floor while Brandon sits perched on the Dora potty seat and gives me a lesson in anatomy. I tell him pee-pee comes out of the front and poo-poo comes about the back. Well, apparently I have it backwards. Poo-poo coumes out of the front and pee-pee comes out of the back.

Whatever end it comes out, after a long session in the bathroom...success! We have pee-pee in the potty! I don't know if this is the start of the real thing or just a phase, but hey, it's pretty cool!

On another subject, one of Brandon's favorite books features pictures of trucks, cars, boats, trains, and the like. In it there is a picture of a red Porsche that Brandon calls, "Mommy's car." It looks something like this:

Doesn't he have good taste?
