We purchased a child's potty when the Little Man turned one and set it out in the bathroom. We thought that we would just expose him to it and he would show interest when he wanted. We talk about going potty and I'm embarrassed to say that I've told the girls at work a time or two that "I'm going to the potty, be right back!".
Well it was worth it, because we had our first correct use of it last night! After weeks of sitting on the potty before getting in the bath only to watch him pee 5 seconds after getting IN the bath we had success.
Our initial reaction was lots of clapping and cheering and general hoopla in our small family bathroom. His initial reaction was pointing and very concerned "uh-ohs". That kid cracks me up!
Once he figured out that it was a GOOD thing he sat down a few more times to keep us clapping. It's so funny what phase we are in our lives right now. I am celebrating going "pee-pee in the potty" but I'd much rather be here than anywhere else.
