Potty Training

Well we have been working on this for a few weeks now and taking b-a-b-y steps for sure. At school he has been doing very well, but I had only been able to get him to pee and only really right before his bath. Honestly I think he had figured out that using the potty before his bath kept him from accidentally peeing in the bathtub which was the reason it was so easy to get him to use it at that time.

I really had my heart set on using one of those over the toilet seats, but after finding out that he has been going poop on the potty at school for sometime, and having a bit of a battle over just that last night, I finally relented that I just wasn't going to have my way. The larger "scarier?" toilet must be the difference. So today after school we went on an adventure, and in true What to Expect the Toddler Years fashion, we let CJ pick out his very own potty. I mean we put them all out in the isle and let him sit on them to give a test drive. It was obvious which one he preferred.

Well folks this evening we had a double success and he got to place his first "EXCELLENT" sticker on his very own potty. I know this is just one of many b-a-b-y steps, but maybe over Spring break we will all be ready to take the big leap......


  1. oh, man! I remember potty training. . . Thing 1 was really difficult and Thing 2 was a breeze. Congrats on your success tonight. Keep up the good work CJ :-)

    Wow girl - he is so much farther along than Alex is! Preschool/day care makes a big difference I think.

  3. Kate - I guess CJ is somewhere in the middle.
    Sharon - I have to admit your feedback makes me feel so much better about how it once again didn't go well in the morning.
