I wouldn’t call it a failure.
Because every new thing (thing meaning any and every thing that comes to your mind) in Trevy’s world often (often meaning always) takes multiple attempts to be successful. Which is why my tendency to give up so easily needs a major attitude adjustment.
So, while I won’t label it a failed first attempt. I can’t call it successful either. Except for successfully making me laugh. Because for some reason…I find Trevy’s “Sensory Face” hilarious. It’s like a cringe/grimace/smile/full body contortion all rolled in one. And it’s just too funny-cute. Especially with his little hands to the wall like a felon (which he kinda is if you ask me. Potty Training for this long is a crime!) So he was hands to the wall…full on Sensory Face…PLUS squeezing his lil’ cheeks (you know the ones I mean .wink.). I tried to wipe him clean several times but his lil’ glutes are stronger than I give him credit for. In the end, I had to lay him down. Which to my surprise he didn’t protest! Go figure!
