My apologies to my fabulous sponsor, CSN Stores, for taking so long to get this posted. I've been waiting to get a good photo & it's just not happening... I promise he does sit on the potty without his diaper on, but for public pictures sake, I'm okay with the pj's.
I'm not in a rush to start potty training (or learning, if you prefer - I haven't decided, but potty training is what rolls off the tongue). I am not ready to chain myself to the house only to ask B if he needs to pee every 15 minutes. However, B asked for a potty. I mean, literally. We were at Target looking at them & he pointed to a red Baby Bjorn potty chair & said "cart". As in, put it in my cart. So I did, & he proceeded to sit on it for about 20 minutes (coincidentally, the longest he's ever stayed put in a cart!).
I didn't actually purchase it on that trip, but I did come up & do some online research. I checked some reviews & then headed to CSN Stores. Awesomely enough, CSN had it listed for a little bit less than Target & I had a gift certificate to use. CSN Stores never lets us down - they always have whatever it is that we need!
B was so excited to get an enormous box in the mail & he almost loved it as much as the actual potty ... for a few minutes anyway.
We got the potty & are just casually using it. B will (mostly) willingly sit on it as long as someone else is sitting on a toilet. He never chooses to go on his own though and rarely does he answer 'yes' when I ask him to go. His favorite activity in the bathroom is flushing the toilet, but one of these days, we'll get there, we have to, right?
