Preliminary Training Drills

We got something special in a box this week:Before it was even out of the box, we had some fun with it. You will have to forgive the fuzzy picture of Bardo.Pippi's photo is edited because Bardo is standing completely nude right behind her. Nude is appropriate potty training attire, right? That's what spurred on the potty purchase. Bardo refuses to keep clothes on. We even have air conditioning.
Pippi spent the afternoon we got our Baby Bjorn Potty Chair pushing Bardo around on the potty, in the box. Bardo went potty 5 times that day. Every other day hasn't been quite so exciting. I should not have thrown away the box.

Other preliminary training drills include but are not limited too: reading books about the potty, allowing Bardo to observe when anyone else uses the potty, and songs. Oh yes, songs. He thinks potty time is show time, requesting favorite songs for 5 or 10 minutes while sitting on his little potty. Maybe we can have this kid trained by the time the baby comes.

Ah yes. Potty training. Some memories are best forgotten. At least Bardo looks happy about it.

Potty training is a four-letter word in our house! June was the worst! I have just decided I'll let Winnie potty train herself because I just don't want to deal with it. Good luck to her kindergarten teacher!

Looks like he might be trained before my almost 3 year old!

I have plenty of boxes if you still want one! I'll take some tips from you about potty training soon. Well, not that soon, but eventually!
