Throne, potty, the pot, bathroom, toilet, pee-pee room, the little girls and boys room, and powder room.
Whatever you call it, all of us had to master it at one point in life, some later than others 🙂 I thought my second go-round with the potty would be easier. Hey I thought this is my second child, she’s a girl, my oldest got it pretty quick…….I’m good! With my oldest daughter Taylor, I started introducing the potty at around 18 months, by her 2nd birthday she had it, no accidents or anything. My method…..I let her walk around the house with no bottoms and when she had to go she went to the potty….no more, no less.
With Morgan my youngest, my experience has been quite different. I don’t know if it because I feel like potty training is the end to babyhood and were not planning on having anymore kids or she just isn’t ready. So I realized that in fact she is pretty much ready to start potty training, it’s really me that isn’t ready to let my baby graduate into a big girl. I won’t miss changing diapers…..buying diapers….oh yeah and buying diapers. I had to come to terms that although she won’t be a baby in age and actions, she will always be my baby, diapers or not.
Leave me a comment! What has been your potty training experiences?
