Potty time November 25, 2008

Posted by Merrilee in Family.

Karydis has become increasingly interested in being naked. The lower the temperature outside, it seems, the more she wants to disrobe. We have not been pushing potty training, but I’ve been secretly hoping that this newfound body awareness would lead to potty training. We’ve had a baby toilet in the bathroom for months, now, and it’s gone almost complete unnoticed, so there has not been a lot of progress in the potty department.

This evening, Karydis took her clothes off in the car (not quite all of them, but made amazing progress considering she was strapped in). Once we got home (and taking the rest of her clothes off), she talked about needing to go potty and I offered to read her a story while she sat on her tiny throne. She was enthusiastic about the idea, so I read her a story. At the end of the story there were about three little drops in the toilet! I felt like this was good progress, but she was not done. She wanted more stories on the potty, so Keith took over and at some point she said, “I have to go…” and just let go.

I know potty training is a long road, but I’m glad she decided to take the first step on her own, and on her own terms. I’m hopeful that by the time she’s in college we won’t need to read to her to get her to go.
