but fizzled out when I realized it took just as much commitment from me as him.
It was easy to lose motivation when the toilet transformed into an aquarium... Perhaps he thought there were sea anemones residing in there?
But his curiosity has grown the last few weeks with him "hiding" when he needed to go and then telling me after that he "went". So we have been diligently trying each day a couple times to introduce the thought of somewhere besides his diaper.
He usually just sits and unravels the toilet paper, dips his fingers a few times (yum), claps, flushes and gets down as if he did the expected.
I always clap too.
Today though...I had something to really clap for.
I always laugh at those parents that post the status' that their child went pee pee in the potty...roll my eyes and think TMI!
But I am happy to say we've joined that lil proud mommy bandwagon of announcing it to the world that their child went PEE PEE IN THE POTTY! (and since I am bragging...THREE times!)
We're getting a new fangled toilet seat for him (or maybe one of those darling little singing potties...whatchya think?) because this flimsy purple one my sister left for her daughter just won't do.
And if you're one of those parents that hasn't experienced the "bandwagon of potty excitement"..skip over, roll eyes and say TMI! haha
