There has been a shift in our household dynamic. We have entered a whole new realm of parenting. We. Are. Potty-training.
CeCe started showing some classic signs of "Time to Ditch the Diaper." So we decided at 20 months old, it couldn't hurt just to bring around a potty chair and introduce her to the idea.
The potty chair is like most things that belong to CeCe: It's pink. Three different shades of pink. Shopping for a potty chair was like shopping for a new car. You would not believe the options some of these models have.
Some potty chairs sit on the toilet, others are free-standing; some are shaped like dinosaurs or like princess thrones with cushioned seats; some make flushing noises and some actually CHEER for your children when they drop one in the plastic bowl.
We chose a middle of the line chair. Made by Safety 1st, it is a 3-in-1 free-standing potty chair, a fit-in-the-big-toilet seat and a step stool when folded shut. It was $11 at Wal-Mart.
I see a long road ahead of us, but at least she has the basics down so far: Remove pants, grab a book and chill.
