Potty-training pictures

I posted the other day about our potty-training efforts with Little Bitty, thought I'd share some pictures of his potty-routine.

Step 1: Sit on the potty, often saying "tee-tee inuh totty" (he has a hard time w/ the "P" sound)

Step 2: Get up

Step 3: "go wahya has" (go wash your hands).

I know that'a small dab of soap, but he's washed his hands like 10-15 times at that point, so much that his hands are getting wrinkly from the water! But hey, at least he's got the wash-your-hands part down :).

Looks like he's mastered that sequence!

Too cute! I love how he uses his resources to get off the tiolet! We are currently PTing ourselves. More days then none, Landon wants to wear big boy underwear, but other days he still whines for his diaper! Good Luck! I'm sure I'll be checking in to see how he's doing.

both my kids are big handwashers to the point where I have to be careful or they will pump out a whole container of handsoap - forget it if is the foaming one.. the whole pump will be GONE.

I take it you have to hide the toilet paper? on September 8, 2008 at 3:59 PM said...

What a happy boy!! Hard not to smile looking at that face!!

Have any of your boys had a problem sitting on the potty without one of those potty seats? Any ideas on how to help my son just sit on the regular seat?

Looks like he's really catching on! Can you send him over here so he can teach my son??? : )

Cute pictures! It looks like he's doing great! I'll have to steal me some potty training tips, because I am going nowhere fast with my son's potty training!

So there's no toilet paper on the roll. Is that because you have boys (I'm clueless on toilet training boys) or is it b/c he likes to a) dump whole rolls of TP in the toilet, b) rip the TP into shreds, c) try to wear the roll of TP as a watch, d) roll it on the ground to see how fast it can unravel, or e) all of the above?

@hellokittiemama & rhemashope - LOL, the tp is missing because he just used up the entire roll doing his repetitive routine. He had to wipe repeatedly every time (even when he hadn't actually *done* anything) and he loves flushing...

@Julie - my older boys started out using a little seat and it was a while before they moved to the regular toilet. LB has a little seat but not interested in using it, guess he figures no one else is using one like that? I tried putting the little seat on top of the regular toilet (it's made to do that) to make it easier for him, but after about 15 min of taking it off and putting it back on, he decided he preferred it off.
