Potty Time

Here is Diego about 2 weeks ago when I tried to get him to sit on the potty. This is even with a candy bribe. See the candy in his mouth? He was not happy about it. So, I've left it alone. I ask him occasionally if he wants to sit on the potty and have some candy and he says no. Everyone I've talked to says not to force the potty issue, so we are just waiting.
Well....first thing this morning he said "sit down potty, piece of candy". Now I fully realize he may have just sat on the potty for a piece of candy, but I'm fine with that. He sat there for 4 or 5 minutes while we sang songs and waited to see if he went potty. Not this time, but still a huge step for this little guy! So proud of him this morning!

How funny...we have the same baby boy!! Reed just loves to sit on the potty and eat candy too...I'm waiting to give him a bigger candy when something actually happens as he's sitting there!!!

There's nothing wrong with introducing him to it when you are ready. But don't be discouraged. Jaycoby wasn't fully trained until just before he turned 4. Ugh! It can take a while.
