Friday Fictioneers – Potty Time


I’ll be right back. You sit and make a poop.

“Okay, Mommy,” she said, in her sweet high pitch voice.

Ivy sprinted to the laundry room. My last chore, then I can put my feet up.

Instead shock covered Ivy’s face as she gazed upon her 18 month olds mess.

“Nikki, what have you done?”

“I cover the poop with paper and powder just like you.”

“Honey, I clean-up the poop, then, add the powder. You put the poop and the powder together. But, you’re a good girl because you pooped in the potty.” Great job! 

Goodbye to rest.

Author: Inside the Mind of Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. It takes a magical kind of person to maintain patience while dealing with someone else’s doodie. 💩


  2. Methinks, a very good mum and a good little girl. My boy when small, many years back, didn’t want to use the potty for too long, but wanted to stand on a box at the toilet and wave his tiny willy everywhere but at the bowl. He said he wanted to be like Daddy (well, not quite in reality, but a good try) 😀


  3. I’m glad she held herself together and stayed encouraging.

  4. I liked how the mother dealt with this. She told the girl the correct sequence of what she does and then she said that she was a good girl because she did a great job pooping in the potty. Correction and commendation. Great job, Mom.

  5. A mom’s job is never done and imitation is the highest form of flattery. Very sweet story!

  7. Querida isadora,

    Ain’t motherhood grand? I remember having my two year old bringing his potty seat bowl to me to show me what marvel’s he’d created. Cute story.

    Shalom y abrazos,
