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.
