The Serenity Prayer - Extended Dance Remix


Grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change, such as the fact that it is statistically normal for a 5 year old boy to still wet the bed,

The COURAGE to change the things I can; specifically the sheets at 3:15 a.m - Preferably without swearing,

And the WISDOM to remember to surreptitiously feel the boy's butt to detect if he's wearing a Pull-Up or trying to get away with big-boy underwear again.

I think this prayer should be copied and pasted onto a plaque that I can hang above the potty. That way I can say it silently at 2 in the morning when I'm going through the same ritual. Many Blessings!

I'm an older mother but never understood the pull up thingees.(Although if they were invented when my kids were little, I would so have used them) It just prolongs the whole process. Once my kids went 24 hrs without an accident, no more diapers in the house. Period.
I always wished that you could send the kids to "potty training camp." They go away for two weeks and come back and more diapers.

We're just in the beginning - mind sharing some of that serenity? I'll need a truckload by the 5th year. I agree with Eileen - Potty Training Camp definately needs to be created! Count me out of starting it, though.

If it makes you feel any better, when I worked at the group home, I was potty training preteens!
