My mum even bought her a potty and when we go to her house she asks dd to use it (which is fine, she can do that) however, my family always makes remarks that it won't make any difference unless I do it too.
But, I don't want to.
The weekend thing sounds interesting, I will have to look it up.
Nobody told me I had to train mine, if ANYTHING i'm getting crap because I'm "starting too early". O_o. (let me tell you i get crap no matter WHAT I DO. If I had waited? they'd start on me for waiting. My family is INSANE)
We just started with Mr Squishy because he was telling us when he was wet, he was VERY interested in what we were doing in the bathroom. Would yell "BYE BYE POO POO" when i'd do #2.... I figured "Why the hell not" :). Some days go better than others. The last few for us, i've totally and utterly been slacking off. We've all been sick and I don't have the energy to charge up and down the stairs (our 2 bathrooms are either up or down a flight of stairs, either in the basement or on the 2nd floor. Love having a 100 year old house!). however, seeing as he's so sporadic, my husband and I are gathering together a bag full of bribes. We've got sesame street toys, we're gonna get cookies, and sesame street books, and a few other things, so every time he does #2, he gets a prize. Although, I think i may start out bribing him EVERY time, and then move it to every time he does #2 as he's pretty sporadic right now. :) ALTHOUGH I did catch him grunting which usually indicates he's doing #2. I CAUGHT IT IN TIME and got him up to the bathroom & didn't have to clean up a besmirchment aside from helping him wipe his bottom. It. was. Glorious.
