Potty

Monday, July 25, 2011

We just got back from vacation!

For starters, here's what I will say about that:  

(1)  Mojitos are awesome.
(2)  Hemingway was not as fat as people seem to think he was.
(3)  Having a toddler in a cast on a beach vacation is not easy.
(4)  Having a toddler, cast or no cast, on a plane is not easy.

More on those topics later.  For now, a quick image that I took before we left town for sandier pastures.


That is one Little Dude, sitting on his new Ikea potty, in his pajamas, watching Yo Gabba Gabba.



What am I thinking?  Here's what.  I bought this book on potty training.  (I know, but that's how I do things...)  I meant to read it on vacation.  I didn't.  But somewhere in my travels, browsings, and Interwebbings, I saw this nugget:

The first thing to do is get the kiddo comfortable with the potty, in particular, sitting on it.  Even if you start with them sitting on it while fully clothed.

So, there you go.  Boom.  Now I just need to read that book and figure out what to do next.

Diapers and Yo Gabba Gabba until then,
Heather

  2. Let me know if this book works as well as the sleep training one you recommended!! (I actually just wrote a novel of a post on my experience with the sleep book...people keep asking!).
