A few weeks ago I posted about 'not' potty training I knew the time was approaching or maybe had approached ages ago and I chose to ignore it but I've been putting it off for ages now. It's not the first time I've put making a change off, last year there was 'the battle of the bottle' - where I bored everyone silly for months about the struggles of getting Leo to ditch his baby bottles and I did the same with moving him from a cot to a bed. You'd think I'd know better by now and realise that I might as well just get on with it, and it's probably not going to be that bad!
On Sunday I had a lovely lie in while Aaron got up with Leo, when I got up we were unexpectedly in full potty training mode. Leo had asked for a new nappy minutes after getting one as he had done a wee, something he had never done before so Aaron asked him if he wanted to wear big boy pants instead and tell us if he wanted one. He agreed and sat on the potty a couple of times to practise.
The problem was though that he is just too big for the potty, it's very hard to get him to sit exactly on it and have room to get the vital equipment pointing downwards! I had a small trainer seat to go on top of the toilet and after quite a lot of persuasion and the promise of a sticker he eventually agreed to try sitting on that instead.
