Carter likes to know how things are going to happen, and in what order. He responds best when he's given a task, broken down into three parts. For instance, if we want him to get ready for bed, we'll tell him to take his clothes off, get a pull-up (yes, he's still wearing them at night), and pick out pj's.
So last night he was on the potty before bed and I was chatting with him and I said, "Okay, now here's what we need to do..." He interrupted and said, "I know, Mommy. Let me break it down for you. First I'll flush the potty, then I'll wash my hands, and then I'll go give Daddy a hug and a kiss."
Break it down for me? Where did he get that? He said he heard it on one of his Land Before Time movies but I couldn't stop laughing.
