Potty Time

I am sure you are thinking with a title like this,"what in the world?" However, Addy is getting close to the time where we are thinking of starting to train her. She is about 17 months old and lately she has been grabbing at her diaper and being more aware of when she goes to the bathroom and she even comes to me and lays down when she wants to be changed.

I have been talking to many mom's and others about when to start and what is best. Many have said wait until they are ready and don't rush it, which is great advice. I really appreciated all the advice and feedback I got from everyone. The advice I decided to take was to just buy a potty chair and let Addy just get use to it being in the bathroom and seeing what it is all about.

I am kind of excited for this next stage. Yes, it will be cheaper but how fun to watch our little girl grow up. I know it isn't always the easiest thing to potty train but hey it can be our little potty adventure!! HAHA....

So here is to FUN POTTY TRAINING and I will keep you all updated!

Cute little story
Lib: Mommy! Mommy! I did it! I did it!

The Mom: [inspects Shorty's port-o-can] Uh, no you didn't. Not even a drop.

Lib: Oh.....[thinks about things] I try again.

(While handily courting the fruit snack bribe from Mom)

Lib: I'll take my fruit snack now.

Mom: When you've gone potty you can.

Lib: You can get it ready for me. ('get it ready' for her?)

Mom: Libby, when your done, I'll give you a fruit snack.

Lib: You can give it to me now. I'll just hold it. Trust me.

( "you'll just hold it"? "Trust me"??


  1. Cute pic of Addy with her potty chair. It seems like she's way too young, but I think that's because I can't get used to how fast they grow up! :D Good luck!!

  2. Good luck Katie, maybe she can show Marshall how it's done once she gets it all figured out :).
