Mittens Goes Potty
(24 Eddison Street, Main, Northern Nathan in 2000)
One day in 24 Eddison Street, Main, Northern Nathan, Mittens Harriet Cat was playing with her dolls when her mother, Mrs. Betty Wilson Cat, and her father, Mr. Winston Tyler Cat, arrived into the bathroom carrying a plastic, chair-like thing. "Mittens," said Betty "Can you come to the bathroom please?" "Yes mummy," replied Mittens as she walked to the bathroom to see her mum. "What is that mummy?" asked Mittens unsure what to make of this plastic chair-like thing. "This is called a potty chair, Mittens," answered Winston, "With this, you won't be needing nappies anymore," added Betty, "You can become a big girl and wear these." Betty lifted her dress to reveal her panties, "These are called panties," she said and let her dress down. "Oh I see," said Mittens. "Try sitting on the potty chair, Mittens," said Winston, Betty untapped Mittens nappy and helped Mittens sit on the potty chair. "How does it feel, Mittens?" asked Betty, "It feels comfy," Mittens replied cheerfully, "What is the potty for?" "The potty is for doing a wee or poo," explained Betty, "You go potty on the potty instead of your nappy. Sometimes it takes a while to wee or poo but it will happen." Then Mittens began to wee into the potty, "Yay! You're going potty!" cheered Betty. Mittens smiled as her wee wee flow slowed down to a cute dribble and stopped. Betty helped stand Mittens up, wiped Mittens clean from front to back with toilet paper, empty the wee into the toilet and flushed the toilet, and washed her hands, "Here are some things to remember; first after going potty you have to wipe from front to back, then empty the potty contents into the toilet and flush the toilet and the last step wash your hands with soap and water. If you feel that you need to go potty, tell me or daddy and we'll put you on the potty," informed Betty. "Yes mummy," said Mittens.
Later after lunch, Mittens continued to play until she felt the urge to wee wee. "I gotta go potty," she called to her mum. Betty took Mittens to the bathroom, untapped Mittens nappy and sat Mittens on the potty. Mittens sat and waited until she felt wee wee trickled into the potty, Betty was pleased with her daughter. After Mittens' wee wee flow slowed down to a cute dribble and stopped. Betty helped stand Mittens up, wiped Mittens clean from front to back with toilet paper, empty the wee into the toilet and flushed the toilet, and washed her hands. "You will be mastering to use the potty one day, I'm proud of you" said Betty, Mittens smiled.
The next day, Mittens was playing with Felesha The Two-Tail Fox, who came along for a playdate. They both played tea-party when Mittens' tummy began to grumble loudly and her tummy hurts. "What's wrong Mittens?" asked Felesha, "My tummy hurts," replied Mittens, "Mum." Betty soon arrived to see Mittens "Yes Mittens?" asked Betty. "Mum, my tummy hurts." replied Mittens. "Hmmm, do you need to go potty?" asked Betty, "Yes I do" said Mittens "I have a funny feeling in my bottom." Betty and Mittens went to the bathroom and she untapped Mittens nappy and sat Mittens on the potty. "It seems that when your tummy hurts, it means that you have to do a poo," said Betty. Mittens understood what her mum said, she waited and grunted on the potty chair until she finally pooed into the potty. "Ahh, all done," she announced, she wiped her bottom from front to back with toilet paper, dumped her potty's contents into the toilet, flushed it and washed, rinsed and dried her hands. "Well done, Mittens," said Betty "Since you not only pooed into the potty chair, you also did the important steps by yourself and I'm proud of you. Since you're now using the potty, you can now wear these." Betty showed Mittens a pair of pink training pants. "These are called training pants. They're between diapers and underwear," described Betty and she helped Mittens step into her new training pants and pulled them up. "They feel lovely," said Mittens as Betty smiled. Mittens showed Felesha her training pants who was in awe on how they look on Mittens. That night, Mittens was getting ready for bed until her mum reminded her to go potty before bedtime. Mittens pulled down her training pants and sat down on the potty chair, she waited until she wee wee into the potty. After her wee wee flow slowed down to a cute dribble and stopped, she wiped from front to back with toilet paper, empty the wee into the toilet, pulled her training pants on and flushed the toilet, and washed her hands. Betty was happy for her daughter that she used the potty.
For several weeks, Mittens have been using the potty for both day and night. She mostly used the potty successfully all the time however there were some times that she didn't get to the potty on time and sometimes had an accident. Her mum and dad told her it's okay to have accidents and they both knew that Mittens is still a clever kittycat. After several weeks later, it was time for Mittens' big test; using the big girl potty. "This is the big girl's potty or otherwise known as a toilet" said Winston, "It is for doing a wee or poo in there rather than using the potty chair. Here's a step-stool to reach to the toilet and a toilet trainer seat" Mittens was amazed by it. A little later, Mittens realised that she needed to wee and to poo. "I need to potty on the toilet," she announced, Betty, Winston and Mittens all went into the bathroom. Mittens steps onto the step stool, pulls her training pants down and sits on the toilet. She waited and grunted until she her wee wee and poo all landed into the toilet bowl. "That's my girl," praised Winston, Mittens wiped her private parts and bottom from front to back with toilet paper, tossed it into the toilet, flushed it and washed rinsed and dried her hands.
Betty and Winston were so proud of Mittens that they were both teary eyed. "We're so proud of you Mittens," said Betty, "Since you gone potty and completed the big test, we got something for you," said Winston and he showed Mittens a pair of pink underwear. "With these panties, you're now fully potty trained," said Betty, Mittens stepped into her new panties and pulled them up. "I feel like a big kid now, thank you mummy and daddy." "You're welcome" said Winston and Betty together.
Now Mitten Harriet Cat uses the toilet, she felt proud of herself all thanks to her parents who trained her to use the potty.
