Potty Training has begun

8 Jun

Today I picked up Stephen just before putting him in the bath and sat him on the toilet. This I have tried a few times, sometimes at his request, yes at Stephen’s request – which is a series of grunts, pointing and tugging at pants. Stephen quite quickly had a pee while watching in complete fascination. Also he had to flush as well – Stephen always has to flush 🙂 that and use some toilet paper; which he always makes an effort to blow his nose with first.
Lovely stuff.
So now Kathy is doing research as to the best was to potty train a toddler properly. We have one of those things that you put over the toilet that sort of makes the ‘hole’ smaller, but I think that we need something smaller.
Fortunately I have a son that wants to copy pretty much everything I do. Well that can be a bit dangerous.
So has anyone got any pointers?
Much Appreciated 🙂

    If we’re talking about pointers- please just teach him to point straight, quickly!

      you’re a funny guy.
      So do you have any tips/suggestions learned from Master James?
      For even little Tristan will benefit from said tips[slash]suggestions
