No matter what lies you may hear, boys usually potty train around three years old and won’t be able to properly wipe their own butts for years after that. Due to this fact, you will probably choose to wipe their butts for them to avoid purchasing new Spiderman underwear on a weekly basis. Just hope that by the time they reach high school they will get it figured out.
Another thing boys are less than stellar at, is aiming when they go to the bathroom. You may find yourself asking, “were your eyes opened or closed when you peed?” Warning: If you have a trashcan next to the toilet, it may end up filled with urine. You will wonder how this is even possible, until one day you catch your son with his pants around his ankles, three feet from the toilet, peeing as he walks towards it. As the only female in my house, I’ve seriously considered purchasing a urinal for our bathrooms. The only reason it hasn’t been installed yet is due to ongoing negotiations over who will clean it.
Having low expectations means any pee that does not end up in your son’s underwear will be considered a SUCCESS!
