potty training day 1

this post has nothing to do with crafting, diy's, gorgeous rooms, or even the beach....but it's front and center in my life at the moment!  so naturally, i had to share!
today, i'm going to try and begin the messy process of potty training my youngest! 
he just turned two, so it's probably time to start.
i've already introduced the "potty" to him and attempted to get him to do it, here and there....but haven't committed!  so i'm going to do my best to stay committed, stick with it and see how it goes!
unfortunately the parents have to be as involved in the process as the little one, and that requires time, patience and effort.....basically me not being lazy!
so here i go....

  2. this is great - I hope it goes well. I am hoping my daughter will potty train early and easy so I don't have to buy 2 different diaper sizes for very long! GOOD LUCK! :)

  7. Just know that you can do it as well as he can. I work with infants and toddlers and have potty trained over 30 children. My best advice is don't be the bad guy let the timer do it. Set a kitchen timer or if you have another give it a name like the Potty Timer or the Tinkle Timer and set it for every 10-20 minutes,when it goes off make a big happy noise and have the others join in (only at first)that helps to associate the potty as a fun place. You are just reminder not the bad guy who is telling him it is time to go potty all the time. If a sticker chart is something that works as a reward (for some it does and some it doesn't) then add that to your day too. Hope this help and happy pottying
