Potty Time

So we have been introducing the potty to Marcus and so far he is doing excellent. He seems young, (17 months) but he's the one who cries when his diapers are wet and holds his shi-shi instead. So I said what the heck, why not try. Thanks to Amy's little book, Ultimate Potty Training (I think that is what it is called) and some attractive Cars underwear, he is ready to go!

He knows how to hold his shi-shi, so it is just a matter of getting him comfortable enough to shi-shi in the potty. Sometimes he does and sometimes he tinkles in his big boy underwear, which results in him crying "oh-no, oh-no, oh-no". And that's how I kow we had an accident. :o) But the best part is that his little buns and legs are so darn cute in his underwear!!!!


  1. I have heard that two things help.
    1 - I had an auntie that used to color the water in the toilet blue so that when her boys went potty it turned green! Boys think things like that are pretty cool...
    2 - I had a friend tell me that he taught his younger brother to go potty in the toilet by telling him to aim for the 'bubbles'. It worked for them.
    I don't have any PERSONAL advice, because I am not even THINKING about potty training my little one yet.

    Good luck - let me know what works best so that I can implement your good ideas :)

  2. AWWW..his a big boy now!!! goooo marcus.. love you guys
