My son Ian is doing well on using the toilet these days but still needs help when he goes poop. This morning he went to the bathroom and I told him I’d be right there. Well, I wasn’t right there.
In fact, I didn’t respond for a while. So, it scared him.
My poor little boy called for me and I didn’t answer or respond. I couldn’t hear him since I was on the other end of the house.
I finally went back to the bathroom after Kirk told me that he was crying in the bathroom.
Can I just tell you how I felt? TERRIBLE!! Not only did I inadvertently make my son cry, I also scared him. I was busy on my computer while he was in the bathroom and got totally sidetracked and when I realized what I’d done, I felt so bad.
When I saw him, I too cried and apologized to Ian. You know what he said? “It’s okay Mommy,” as he looked at me with tears in his little blue eyes.
He is such a sweetie!
I truly feel like I should be in the dog house, but my son was loving and forgiving! I love that I can learn about this from him.
Aren’t children amazing? They deal with the present, forgive, shed some tears, and move on. If only I could live like that!
I hope and pray that I have a better rest of this Wednesday! Hope you have a good one as well!!
