I have a five year old daughter and an almost 18 month old daughter. My older child did not potty train until she was almost 3, we tried at 2, to no avail.
Now, my younger child is showing signs of interest. She pulles off her diaper to pee without one in the morning (if she has no pants on). And she brings me claen diapers before she wets regularly. Could she be ready? Its so much earlier than my first. It seems too good to be true.

Definitely not too early. My not quite 16mo is working on it and is doing really good. My last three girls were all done by 2 years old. Have you read Diaper Free Before Three? It is a good read and was really helpful for me after my oldest two seemed to take forever.

Thanks. I will read it. I would love for her to potty train. I am so surprised by her desire. Tonight, I walked into the bathroom and she screamed "pee-pee"

Definitely go with it. I also highly recommend diaper free before three and also the diaper free baby. The second one may sound intimidating but it's about giving baby/toddler the option to not be 100% reliant on diapers all the time and is great for early learners and using diapers between potty trips as backup if you so wish.
