Potty training is just not going very well for the Berkobits family. They had to call in the fire department when their three-year-old son Tzvi got his head stuck inside his potty seat. Putting the potty seat around your head -- that is such a toddler thing to do.
Never mind that mommy and daddy probably showed him several times that it's actually his BUTT that goes there.
Silly boy! It all turned out fine in the end. The boy didn't want to let go of the seat so the firemen ended up having to cut through the back of it. "It's not every day that you remove a toilet or a potty from someone's head," a spokeswoman said. But the firemen told the Mrs. Berkobits they do this all the time. (Remove potty seats from heads, that is.)
I so wish I could embed the head-in-potty video right here -- it's hilarious. Yes OF COURSE the Berkobits family took a picture of Tzvi with that toilet seat around his neck. And OF COURSE he's crying in the picture. It's going to be so awesome when Tzvi grows up and his parents gleefully pull out that photo for their new daughter-in-law to see!
It goes without saying that I was far too sensible a toddler to ever have done anything so absurd myself (i.e. there is no photographic evidence). But I do remember my little brothers using the training potty cups that went under the seat as hats. Gross!
Yeah. I guess it's going to be a few more months before little Tzvi gets a handle on that potty training business.
Has your toddler done crazy things with their potty chair?
