Yes, folks, Elmo is the first to be potty-trained in our house. I bet you've never seen Elmo tee-tee on the potty, huh? And I also bet we are the first household to successfully potty-train him. However, I must give BB the credit. He worked hard all of 5 minutes conquering this tough feat. Words can't express our excitement...literally. BB seems to know when Elmo needs to tee-tee. Now if we can get BB to let us know when he needs to.
BB working hard at his goal of potty-training Elmo.
Seriously, though. We have begun to "explore" the wilds of potty-training. I wouldn't say that we are very serious with this just simply exploring. We set them on the potty and if after 5 to 10 minutes they haven't gone, we take them off and go about our day. CB seems to be picking it up a little quicker than BB. Which has been typical in their development with BB catching on a couple weeks later. CB has told us a few times that he needed to tee-tee and actually went within seconds of being on the potty but still doesn't mind using his diaper to the fullest, literally. BB, however, replies, "No Sir" when asked if he needs to tee-tee on the potty. We usually put him on it anyway while sometimes he goes and sometimes he doesn't. We aren't feeling any pressure and just taking it one day at a time. Now check back with me this time next year...things maybe different.
“A child can go only so far in life without potty training. It is not mere coincidence that six of the last seven presidents were potty trained, not to mention nearly half of the nation's state legislators.”~ humorist, Dave Berry
