Montessori Toddler Class Teacher: When does Boy2 turn 3?
MTCT: We should plan on transitioning him to Primary by March 1.
Me: (gulp) Does that mean he needs to be potty-trained by then? (Please no! No! No!)
MTCT: Yes. Maybe over Thanksgiving or Christmas, or before then, you can pick a weekend where you'll be staying in and put him on the potty every half an hour.
Me: (faintly smiling)
MTCT: Eventually, he'll produce something and get the idea.
Me: (still faintly smiling)
MTCT: Just make sure you don't have anything to do on those days! (laughs merrily)
Me :Mmm..okay. Sounds good.
MTCT: I would start him off sitting down too. Sometimes, they do both at the same time. And it gets kind of messy.
Me: (faintly smiling again). Mm hmm.
MTCT: Like they'll just be standing there and oops! So, yes, sit him down first.
Me: (silent, disturbed by visual)
(FYI, we did not tackle this over Thanksgiving.)
