Every day seems to bring with it a new milestone for 2 ½-year-old Dezi James — son of actress Jaime Pressly — except for a very important one.

“He’s in the process of potty training, which is not going very well,” the former My Name Is Earl star admits. “Boys for some reason don’t like to go on the potty.”

“I thought it was just my son, but it’s not,” Pressly, 32, notes.

“It’s the majority of men. Sorry, little boys. Babies. Although I do think that if men had the opportunity to just go in a diaper and let someone else clean it they would.”

That theory is based on her own experiences with Dezi.

“He looks at his little girlfriend — who is his age and is potty trained completely — and doesn’t understand,” the actress says. “[He asks], ‘Why you don’t let Mommy clean it?’ Like it’s taken some time out of his day.”

“I’m hoping by the time this [interview] comes out he will be fully potty trained,” Pressly says. “Fingers crossed!”
