Our usual potty routine here is that after Jake or Ellie have done a pee we give them a tissue so they can wipe their bits, which they then give back to us to put in the bin.
When they started using the potty we left a box of tissues nearby. Apparently however pulling all the tissues out one by one & scattering them all over the room is tremendous fun. So we stopped doing that.
This afternoon it’s business as usual: Jake is carrying out his newly acquired skill with customary aplomb. He finished & stood up, so as usual I went to get him a tissue & offered it to him.
I then heard: “No, I don’t need it: I’m doing this!”
Now that’s often a worrying thing to hear at the best of times.
Turning around with some trepidation…
I found him drying himself with a toy hairdryer.
Ellie followed suit soon after.
You have to admire their creativity at least!
