he's going to want to do it "by himseff."
When you let him go by himseff,
he'll probably touch every surface in the stall.
After he touches everything, he will realize he needs your help.
So he'll probably yell for you to come.
After you've helped him, he will want some "pwivacy".
When he's finished, he'll want some toilet paper.
He'll start flushing.
He might get carried away and flush everything he can find.
He may even end up flooding the floors as well!
When he's done, he'll probably be locked in the stall.
You'll have to coach him through the unlocking.
He'll finally crawl out along the sticky floor.
After he crawls out of the stall, he'll need to wash his hands.
So you'll lift him up to the sink.
He'll get so excited he'll want to turn the handle.
He'll use the cold and hot.
He'll pump the soap.
When the washing is finished, he'll want to dry his hands
with a paper towel.
When he looks for a paper towel, he might notice the paper towels are gone and he has to use the air dryer.
Looking at the air dryer will remind him that he's scared of loud noises.
So, he'll wipe his hands on his sticky sweatshirt.
After he dries his hands, he will want to hold yours and help open the heavy swinging door.
You'll walk out the door with him and pass the drinking fountain.
Looking at the drinking fountain will remind him that he's thirsty.
he'll ask for a drink of water.
And chances are if he asks for a drink of water,
he's soon going to need to go back to the restroom!
