Potty in the Potty

Miles went potty in the potty today!!  Not that I have high hopes or anything, but this is something I've been thinking about starting for a while now.  Most mornings Miles will wake up with a dry (or mostly dry) diaper and then potty about 5 minutes later.  So I've been thinking that if I start VERY slowly by putting him straight on the potty in the mornings and letting him go there for a while he *might* just catch on.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not crazy.  I realize that he will probably be in diapers for some time.  But I figured this would be a good start.

This morning went something like this -- 

Good morning Miles!  Dry diaper, yes!  Lets go to the potty.

Diaper off, sit down, run water, point that thing DOWN for goodness sake, YAYAYAYAY you pottied in the potty!!

Lots of cheering and clapping!!

I tried to show him his potty and he tried to touch it.  Gross.

Then I tried to get his diaper back on and he threw a fit.

And then immediately peed more in it.

All in all, not a bad first try.  Obviously I need to get a book, or some advice, or something!

In the meantime I plan on going straight from waking up to the potty to let him go there as much as possible.  I'm just hoping he enjoys the praise and catches on.  Maybe he will, and maybe he won't, but it's a start!

  1. I am thinking about doing this with my son because he is the same why. I have just been lazy and not taken the plunge.
