Joey's been having a tough time with the old potty training as of late. Some of the challenges we have endured include him changing his mind on which bathroom he wants to use multiple times during each attempt and insisting on various stages of dress.
Being two years old also means that he's developing his independence and therefore wants to do everything himself and in his own way. (I wonder from which parent he gets this trait.)
During a trip to the potty this morning Joey decided he wanted to remove his shirt. The important thing here is that you have to visualize Joey trying to pull his shirt directly over his head by the collar. This is probably the harder way to take off a t-shirt... especially when you the have short, stubby little arms of a two year-old.
After struggling with this process for a few minutes I offered to help him. "No I do it!" was his response.
In a second attempt to remove the shirt, Joey tried a new strategy. He got to a point where he had placed each arm through the neck of the shirt and was stuck wearing it more like a skirt. After analyzing his predicament and looked up at his old man and said "Help?"
