Eileen's Lessons - July 2017

When my son was in preschool, the teacher pulled me aside and said that she found something odd. It seems that my son would run into the bathroom, shout out a series of "potty" words (toilet paper, toilet, sink) and then run back out. This apparently happened a number of times.

Why was he doing that? My husband and I had counseled him that dirty aka potty words were for the potty only. So, it would appear as though he took our advice literally. Well, he was only 4.
