No, I'm not potty training...not yet anyways. From my past experience w/my older 3 ...I didn't push it...then one day by the time they were 3 they woke up and were potty trained...day...poo...night...it all! boom! Seemed too easy I guess.
Enter Lily....she is unlike the other 3 and has new chapters in my parenting book of Lily! I thought though that since she has started to show an interest in the potty and likes to sit on it whenever one of us goes in to 'potty', that it was time to get a chair.
I put it in the downstairs bathroom and told her what it was and that's it. She put a book in there next to it. (copies the adults haha) The other night she brought the potty into the living room w/it on her head like a hat. She kept saying "TT Hat TT Hat" HAHA...ummmm no!
I did venture out and bought her some Gerber Training Pants. I love the thick cotton feel of these.....(my big kids used them to train) I'm not and never have been a fan of pullups....either do it right or not at all! She wanted her big girl panties on today, but only to wear....so I waited a hour or so an panicked and put her back in a diaper. She isn't ready.....not yet!
On to something really fun though....
Laurie Berkner....do you know who she is? Well love love love her! SO does Miss Lil! Think preschool teacher w/a guitar having music time! I was so glad that she has a dvds out. If not I was going to write her and tell her I needed one asap!
She has a collection of fun silly songs that has Lily moving to the beat. Here is a video I took about a month ago of Wild Child when she first watched Laurie!
Finally I bought the dvd and wild thang sings and jumps and spins and acts out all the songs! Def worth the $13! You should put it on your child's Christmas List. The "Let's hear it for the Laurie Berkner Band" is our favorite one!
