Wordless Wednesday: Potting Training

Breakthroughs and Setbacks
It's been an interesting transition

She'll sit on the potty all day
As long as there's proper entertainment

Reading more books than I can count
Drawing with crayons on the toilet seat
Singing every song we know
Stacking foams blocks on the step stool

Sometimes our efforts are rewarded
Other times, it's all just for fun :)

Oh, I hated those days! Sitting in the cramped, uncomfortable bathroom reading book after book! Can't say I was ever patient enough to stay there all day!

Potty Training is as liberating as high school graduation. You think, as a parent, you'll never get there. You angst, worry, watch, coax, bribe, punish. Then you experience monumental relief!

Have a blessed day!

Staci said...

Chief said...

Janelle said...

Oooh... those days...!!! but hey they don't have to be bad, in fact they are quite funny...

Katherine said...

LOL you know what finally got my kids to go on the potty? If they went potty, Mommy would do the crazy "pee pee dance"... I would dance as crazy as I could, singing and making a fool out of myself while singing, "Pee pee Dance!" They would laugh so hard that they TRIED to go.

Ali said...

OH! I remember those days.

Chi-town momma said...

So this is my future? and Taylor's too? She will be right there helping to cheer on big brother I suppose! Hope he doesn't have stage fright!

Very impressive multitasking by the future junior executive...

I KNEW there was a market for "potty toys". Or maybe it's just a Verhoff thing. (A belated huge thank you for L's bday gift!! So sweet - we'll have lots of dominoes games at the holidays one of these years!)
