Potty training?…maybe for one…

I got a potty chair today.  Truthfully, neither boy seems very interested in potty training.  In fact, they often cry when we try to put them on the toilet.  But we needed a step-stool so they could start brushing their teeth in the sink * and I found this potty chair that converts into a step stool so I went ahead and purchased it today.

To my surprise, M was more than happy to sit for a long time on the potty!  He never actually went to the bathroom in it, but he I was happy he was so cooperative. 

L on the other hand wanted nothing to do with the potty, except to put the lid up and down.  So, we’ll see if they continue to have more interest in the potty.  My tentative goal is to potty train them this summer.  But we’ll start sooner if they show more signs of interest.

*The boys had their first dentist appt. this week.  Their teeth look great and the doctor gave me the go-ahead to have them start using toothpaste, therefore we needed a step-stool so they can brush in the sink.  M did wonderfully for the dentist.  He was very brave, didn’t cry at all and was extremely cooperative.  L forgot to be cooperative.  He pretty much screamed the entire time.  Hoping it won’t affect his future in dental hygiene care.



  1. Great news about the dentist….Good luck with the potty training!!

  5. Hang in there with potty training. It was by far the HARDEST thing we have dealt with in our parenting. Charlie didn’t get it till he was 3 1/2. Sawyer picked up on it quick from watching Charlie and wanting to keep up with him. Hope it goes well for you. If it doesn’t work right away don’t push it. It isn’t worth all the headaches!
