Building Trust

Laurel is in the beginning stages of potty training. When the occasion arises, and she asks to use the potty, we oblige. We let it be her idea. So far, she'll sit a minute, nothing happens, and then she's wiggly and ready to go play.

But the little potty chair is not good enough for her. Lately, she wants to use the big toilet. Fine by us, less mess to clean up, that is if she ever produces anything.

One evening, Paul goes to help her remove her diaper and place her on the big toilet. She balances on the rim, Paul's hands nearby just in case. She worriedly looks up at him stating, "Daddy, don't flush me down the toilet!"

How cute :)

Morgan likes to sit on her potty, but won't do anything. When I take the seat thing out of the potty and put it on the big toilet, she'll pee. Not all the time, but...she said "pee pee" Tuesday night so, I put her on it and within a few seconds, she tinkled up a storm.
