Apparently Alex wants to use the potty. Who am I to discourage him? I'm sure it's just a phase-- I mean, the kid barely speaks. Let me rephrase that-- he speaks all day long; I just don't know what language it is. I'll indulge this new interest for a while. Problem is he wanted to sit on the potty all day (with no result) and I had many things to do this morning. Funny story-- I brought out Talia's princess potty for him to sit on. Apparently the princess potty is NOT for boys! It is not properly made to accomodate his anatomy. He had no room to point his little thing down. He would've peed right on the floor. At least in Philadelphia when I trained Talia the floors were all wooden. Here there is a lot of carpet. What do I do about that?
36 year old mother to 6 1/2 year old Talia, 3 yr old Alex, and 7 month old Shayna. I retired from Pediatric Intensive Care Nursing in 2007. My family moved from Philadelphia to Madison, Wisconsin in July 07. I love to craft, quilt, cook and read. Spending time with my kids is ok too! In the last few years I've gotten into green living by trying to eat local, compost, cloth diaper and garden. As a family we are enjoying exploring Madison and transitioning from being East Coast people to Midwesterners. (Updated 09/10)
