Riverbanks Zoo with Pop Pop

Graham, Pop Pop, and I took a road trip over spring break to the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia.  With Graham still in the midst of potty training, it was a bit of a challenge, but we took it on.  Graham did achieve something pretty miraculous too on the trip.  After we ate, I took Graham to the potty.  Well, the zoo was packed and the bathroom line was insanely long.  I wasn’t really worried about Graham being able to hold it because Graham has the bladder control of steel, but Graham doesn’t like to go in public toilets yet.  I mean, at this point, I could barely get him to go in his little potty.  So, I figured we would get all the way in there and Graham wouldn’t go anyway.  So, I saw a wooded area next to the restrooms and figured, why not?  I asked Graham if he wanted to pee in the woods and he said, “Yes!”  We went over there, he pulled down his pants, and proceeded to pee.  Who knew it could be so simple?  I was shocked!…… and relieved! 

We had a good time at the zoo although Graham was a little antsy because that was the last time he went to the bathroom until we got home that night!  On a side note, this was a week and a half ago and he is now doing much better.  We are achieving much more potty success!
