Potty Training

Don't get too excited yet, Maxton is not getting totally potty trained...we are just having some fun and keeping it light. Before a bath, or any time we take off the diaper and have some extra time, we ask Maxton if he wants to go potty, and he always says "Yes" and peepees on the toilet.
The other day, I was giving Max a bath and put him on the toilet before slipping him into the tub. He peepeed and had a little gas, so I thought I would give him a little encouragement and see if he needed to poo. So I said, "do you need to go poo poo? Push...go poo poo just like daddy!" He starts to give it a try...and then he stops and says "Book!" I ran to the other bathroom and found him a PA fishing magazine and he proceded to read it while sitting on his throne. I thought it was hilarious that my two year old had made that connection. In case you were wondering, he still hasn't had a successful poo in the toliet, just pee...but, he looks good trying...he reads a magazine everytime.

I'm starting to wonder...do men just say they have to poo, and really it's just an excuse to escape for a few minutes and catch up on some light reading.

escape for a few minutes? you have to be kidding! but I'll tell you, my #1 daughter potty trained with the Wilton annual cake decorating magazines. She turned out to be easily potty trained and very artistic. do you think those magazines had anything to do with it?

Way to go Max! That's the perfect way to start. Confession, I hate little side potty training toilets! I hate the thoughts of cleaning them out, yuk! I was lucky, like you and had little boys to potty train. It was easy, I just said here do like your daddy does. They always wanted to be like their daddy's so it was easy. Now on to girls, Shelby was so afraid of falling thru the hole on my toilet seat so I went in search of a permanent seat and I found one! It is made by Kohler, I ordered it on line my self and they sent it straight to the house. It is called a transitional seat. It has a lid then a small opening hole seat perfect for little bums and then if you lift that seat it has a normal seat for adults. It's perfect for little ones and adults alike. Solved my problem and Shelby's too. So good luck little mommy with the potty training, fun, fun.

That is the cutest blog ever! Love it. How funny is it that a 2 year old picks up on his father's bathroom rituals and habbits?

By the way...the whole gas while/before you pee thing runs in the family. ;-)

Hope you guys are doing well out there!

Hilarious...He will be so mad at you when he gets older...That potty training is a pain.I think the training part is really that the parent gets trained more so than the child. I agree with gigi about those potty seats that you can sit anywhere. I went to a playdate the other day and there was one sitting in the living room and my kids kept playing with it like it was one of the toys...gross...
