Matty's first potty-training went better than expected, and boy was he proud.
There's something so adorable about babies and watching them grow up. This sentiment is exemplified even more so if one is a parent or grandparent, as no matter how grown up their progeny are, they will always be little children in their eyes. It's always embarrassing when they bring up your childhood stories but frankly, we can all admit that they did a pretty good job raising us. Toilet training is, of course, a key part of a child's upbringing and it's more or less the time in every infant's life where they learn to be more independent.
Little Matty has just begun to be taught how to use one the right way and though he might feel utterly awkward about it once he gets older, the video is truly a riot. Here's hoping that he doesn't stumble upon this story later on in life and think, "Wait, did thousands of people just laugh at my toilet training?" Well if it's any consolation, Matty, we aren't laughing at you, but rather with you and your papa.
Matty's father recently took to social media and shared what is without a doubt the funniest thing we've seen all week, PopSugar reports. The video has Matty sitting on the toilet in the midst of being potty trained. So you can see his parents are there and helping him through the whole process for the first time so he can learn to do it all by himself later. When the parents ask the little boy if he went number one or two, he was sorta overwhelmed with this strange voice and he couldn't stop chanting his answer at his dad. “I didn’t poop! I peed!” Matty chants over and over again, putting some real passion into his delivery. “Wait, you didn’t poop?” His father asks. “No! I peed!” He says again. Yeah, because we couldn’t hear him loud enough the first time!
The kid is super assertive every time he gives his answer, and one has no choice to believe that he really did just pee... or did he? He goes on to keep telling his parents about it and at one point the dad cracks up. He begins to laugh and laugh that you can really see tears coming down his face. But, Matty is still a little boy and he thinks that his dad's tears are those of sadness and asks him about it. “You’re sad, daddy!” Matty exclaims, tilting his head fully to one side so that he can get a good look at his dad’s laughter tears. His dad then slowly wipes away his tears of joy and tries to prove to his son that he is definitely not sad, and in fact far from it.
They then take a short break where the dad tries to convince Matty that he is not and was never sad in the first place. Soon, they get him back on the potty-training talk. After taking a short break to convince Matty that he’s not sad, Matty’s parents get him back on the potty-training talk. “Did you poop?” They ask hilariously without an ounce of shame. “No! I didn’t poop! I peed!” He continues with all of the confidence in the world. Still, it's not all that embarrassing as the little boy then starts to giggle to himself and his parents once again lose it.
We sure enjoyed watching this cute family teach their little boy how to act more grown-up. You can view the entire video below!
