Word of advice. Don't put stickers on the potty to make it more inviting.

I just remembered something that happened about 2 years ago.

I bought a potty and also a pack of padded bob the builder stickers in an attempt to lure DS1 into becoming potty trained.

The stickers were covered in shit and piss on the first attempt, and I had to remove them by hand.

So don't say I didn't tell you so.

I knew this was going to make me laugh before I opened you stuck them in the bowl of the potty? not round the edges?

on the outside of course.
i'm not a complete dimwit.
but i did underestimate just how uncontained potty training was going to be.

true, true, and not just potty training.

Went upstairs yesterday to find DD2 had scooped up a nugget of poo that she had done on the carpet with the toy box from DD1's dolls house, and squashed it inside - she seemed to think this was very clever

oh yes the trials of potty trainingshockgrin

dd at first was rather annoyed at using the potty and when she needed it she would take it to a 'private' place behind the curtains of the living room, of course then she was on full view of the street as we have floor to ceiling windows and are on the first floorhmm

my ds has suddenly developed the alarming habit of giving the potty a celebratory good kicking when he's successfully done a pee in it, resulting in a nice spray of warm wee over the surrounding area if i'm not quick enough to grab the potty when he stands up. maybe that's how beckham started learning to bend it....
