So after the incidents yesterday (see yesterday's blog entry), we decided to give the potty seat a whirl. This morning we asked Bri if she would like to sit on the big potty. Oh boy, this girl was excited! She stripped right down to nothing. She couldn't even have her socks on for this, I don't know why. She seriously sat on the potty for an hour. She was pumped. For awhile she wanted to sing songs and about a half hour in she asked for some books to read. I was cracking up that my 21 month old baby wanted to read on the toilet so I made Don bring the camera up. I'm sure this will be a picture she will be really thrilled that I took someday, but it was just too funny to pass up. Anyway, no luck for round one on the potty, but Bri sure did have fun. I finally talked her into getting off so we could go to the gym. The second we got back she was saying "poo poo potty Mommy" so she stripped down again and climbed back up on the potty. A couple of minutes later she pooped in the potty! She was so thrilled with herself and there was lots of cheering and clapping from Brighton and from me. So we'll see how this whole thing goes. Hopefully she stays excited about the whole potty thing and we can get her potty trained! I'm guessing it won't be as easy as I'm hoping, but so far so good. (Knock on wood).
