No real potties were used in the taking of this photograph :)
Oh, man. She thinks she is so cool sitting on that potty. She wants to "try" several times a day (it helps that she gets a mini M&M just for sitting there). So far we've had 2 successful tinkles!!! I know it's not much, but each time she goes we are one step closer to not having to pay for or change diapers. The first time I actually didn't realize she had done anything until she turned around and stuck her hand in it. That's what soap is for :)
For now we are keeping it in the downstairs bathroom because it makes the most sense to have it right by the playroom. Eventually I want to get another one for her bathroom upstairs but I am hoping that if we wait a while we can go straight for the seat that just fits over the big potty. Those are much easier to clean :) The one we are using downstairs is a 3-in-1 where it can be a little potty or a potty seat with a step stool and she actually likes to try putting the seat on the big potty so I'm really hoping we are headed more in that direction.
Since she's still pretty young (almost 20 months) my plan right now is to just do what she feels comfortable with. If she wants to try to sit there, great. If not, it's not that big of a deal. Most of what I've read says that kids can be more consistent and have more control when they turn 2. I would love for her to be potty trained by her 2nd birthday but I realize that if that doesn't happen she will be fine. Most of us learn to use the potty eventually :)
