Everybody Poops!

Today my heart rejoiced and perhaps sang a tune as my baby (almost 3) used the potty for the very first time! NOW, I know that all children do this, but this was one of my greatest mommy moments thus far. The potty chair that Ruger used was just too big for Sawyer, he couldn't get on it and as for the regular toilet, well, obviously that would be too big as well. So I was sort of stuck and annoyed with the whole situation...darn near ready to snatch a bed pan from a hospital, BUT then today as I was walking through Target with my pal Lisa, I came across this little beauty...


I analyzed it for about 20 minutes, sent a text and Mom said, "BUY IT!" and off I went. I brought the little chair home, plopped it on the floor and a few hours later, Sawyer came running in saying, "I did it Mommy!" And he did do it! :) And we are all so proud! Ruger and I jumped for joy giving lots of praise. I knew he was ready, but I on the other hand was ill-prepared until now!
Oh and if you happen to like this potty chair, buy it online because apparently I really over-paid after my research and well, it's not like I can return it now. ;)

We have this very same chair in red as well and LOVE IT!!! I paid around $25 for mine on Amazon a couple years ago & I believe shipping was free as well. :)

Happy Potty Training! We are doing the same thing with our almost 3 yr old!

Congrats Sawyer!! What an accomplishment! We also used this exact potty with Seamus and it was perfect. Do you have Ikea out there? They also make a really tiny potty seat and it only costs a couple of bucks...nice to have a few extras for different areas of the house!

Go Sawyer! I am so jealous. I've been trying to potty train the twins, and one minute they'll show complete interest and then next they throw a fit and want nothing to do with it. Argh.

Way to go Sawyer!!! Don't worry about the potty cost, just remember how much you'll save on diapers!
