It's Potty Time



Okay, I am participating in both Haiku Friday and Photostory Friday today so, bear with me....


We bought a potty
Took off the diaper; guess what?
He peed! What a shock!

Our pediatrician recommended buying a potty just to have around for Liam to get used to it. (We're not even attempting potty training now, though.) On a whim, I took off his diaper and sat him on it and he peed! In the potty! Of course, that was the only time he peed on the potty, the other few times his diaper has been off he has peed on the floor, ottoman and laundry but, hey, the kid's only 17 months old. I took the photo because it was his first time on the potty- who knew I'd capture his first time peeing, too?

For more haiku fun, go here or here. For Photostory Friday info, see MamaGeek!

First, I love the movie Say Anything.

Second, he's too stinkin' cute!
Oh, potty training. I'm right there with my youngest. Aahhhhh, the days of our lives.

Wow - good for him! Even if it was only once, that's an awesome first step.
My 3 year old is still working on it...

I am so glad that mine are done with the potty training thing. He looks so cute in that photo....like he was just saying "See me?"....Good luck.

Oh girl, do you KNOW how luck you are? Let's hope it continues. We've had very little luck on our end. He really does have the genius gene!

And that shot of him his perfect. I just wanna smooch him!

Perhaps the secret to getting him to go in the potty is taking his picture? :-) Great PSF entry.

That's great he peed on the potty the first time he sat on it. Of course, you know it was probably just really good timing on your part too. :) I hope the rest of the potty training goes well too, ours was pretty hit or miss. LOL

I like the haiku that goes with your picture. Very cute.

Dana said...

Hopefully it goes that smooth. We gotta nudge our 2 year old to do the same.

YAY for pee pee! You never thought you would say these things until you become a mom!

Just adorable, and congrats are in order, too! Continued good luck.

I LOVE that you were ready with a camera!! I am such a rotten potty training mom that my older kids were both nearly four...my last one better surprise me. :)

He is adorable and your Haiku is a perfect intro to the story part of PSF. I loved it!!!

That is awesome! We just bought two of the same potties for the twins. It's still too early for them yet though. I hope the potty training success continues.

Oh the joys of potty training...

It's a start and the start of something wonderful. Here's to many successful pee-pees in the near future!

awesome! it took most of my kids till the age of 4 to get this right!

lingovise said...

wow! my little guy has the very same potty... but thus far haven't had any luck getting him to sit on it for more than just a few seconds.

Good Job!

Robyn said...

The haiku is perfect. I should really start trying to get my girl potty trained. Are those a pair of those legging stockings? Do you like them?

Nap Warden said...

We have graduated to pooping on the potty! (I hope that's not too much information) Way to go!

Christina said...

Wow, that's great! And who says that boys potty train later than girls?

My three and a half year old still isn't potty trained. But I think the baby might be potty trained before she is!
