He walked over to his potty chair and stood over it to pee...the thing is, there was no bowl part to catch anything! So it ended up on the floor anyway.
I'm counting it as a catch!
Yesterday he did the "pee stance" and I told DH to put him on the potty. I thought he peed but DH wasn't sure (I was sitting farther away) and we saw DS get up shortly after sitting down so we assumed he hadn't.......until he picked up the bowl and tried to drink it Thankfully most of it ended up on the floor and not in his mouth.

This story is from April DS when was 26.5 mons. We had just got his Scotty Potty training pants in the mail and he loved them, they have pictures of a boys face on them. We were at a toy store and they have 2 train tables set up, a Thomas one and a Plan toys so DS was really really involved. I asked him a few times if he needed to go to the bathroom and he kept saying no. I could see that he had to go, legs crossed he looks up at me with a panicky look on his face and says "I have to poo" We quickly run to the bathroom (luckily it is open so no key needed and big and private and there are 2 )
Unfortunately we were too late and DS had a poo in his training pants. he looked down and said "Oh no, I pooped on that guy's face." It was so cute and funny It totally kept me calm and giggling while cleaning up this huge poopy mess. DS hasn't had a BM accident since.

Until yesterday, when he tried to crawl off the potty, and the insert stuck to his butt. Potty 'contents' everywhere!!!

<gasp> Mommy! I need to go poop. <grabs rear end> My butt hurts. I think I have to go diarrhea.
She did, poor thing. But, she made it. Funny thing, I don't think she has ever had diarrhea since she has potty learned. But, she knew what it was.
This happened at the head of the line when we were waiting to check out at the commissary. It was right after payday, so it was crowded and the line was incredibly long. DS1 was 3 years old.
Me: (noticing DS1 holding himself)" B, do you need to potty?"
Me, a few minutes later, B still holding himself: "Are you sure you don't need to potty?"
DS1: "No, mommy!"
Me: "B, are you wearing underwear or going commando?"
DS1 pulls down his pants, lifts up his shirt, flashing everyone in line and says: "See, no underwear! I'm going commando!"
Chaotic mama to 5 plus a bonus one on the way.
Not exactly related to PLing but came about as a result of being PL'ed- he specifies if he wants to sleep "unnies on" (underwear) or "penis on" (naked) which I think is hilarious. He calls being naked "wear a penis"
Like the time, right when we started using the potty, that I'm in the living room and all of a sudden hear noises in the bathroom. I run over, and DD has taken her diaper off, pooped in her potty, and was dumping it into the toilet. I was so proud, thinking I had one of those children who potty train themselves in a day ... until not fifteen minutes later she squats and pees on the living room floor.
Now, she's just really into telling ME, "Great job pooping on the potty, Mama!" every time I use the bathroom.
DD: Mama? Yucky poop in pants.
Me: Yes, it would be yucky to poop in your pants.
DD: Poop in potty!
Me: Yeah, poop goes in the potty, you're right!
DD: Mama, yucky poop on ducks?
Me: (trying not to laugh) Yeah, I think it would be yucky to poop on the ducks. I don't think they'd like it very much.
DD: Yucky poop turtles?
Me: Turltes too, they wouldn't like it either.
She thought for a moment...
DD: Yeah. No yucky poop trees!
Me: You don't think it'd be yucky to poop on the trees?
DD: No. Bushes too! No yucky poop trees, bushes, yay!
She seemed very satisfied with herself for figuring out where, in the current environment which had no potty, it'd be safe for her to poop.
We've been PL'ing with DS for three weeks. The other morning I ran upstairs to get his clothes for the day and as I'm walking down the steps I see him naked with my tennis shoes on holding onto the kitchen table with his bottom stuck out and pooping on the floor. I didn't know if I should laugh, cry or shuttle him to the potty and risk getting poop on my shoes.
We have a water fountain at our neighborhood park and DH told him that if you pee in the fountain the police will arrest you. So we walk into preschool the other day and the first thing he says to the teacher is "Daddy says if you pee in the fountain the police will come and get you!" I can only imagine what else he says when I'm NOT there

All the stuffed animals and some of the animals on her pajamas are all potty-trained as well. She takes them to the potty, walks away, makes a peeing noise, goes back over, claps and cheers, dumps it out in the sink in her play kitchen, and gets them a treat.

By the way he never had a poop in his cloth diaper. He potty trained by 2.4.
When DD was very newly potty learning, she hadn't made the connection that SHE could pee on demand. Instead, it was a sit and wait and maybe there'd be some pee or maybe there wouldn't. Well, one day, I was in the living room and I had left her in the bathroom to sit with a book. After a bit, she hollers out to me, "Mommy, I found some peepee!" she "found" some.

DS also cheers/claps for me & DH if we "go" on the toilet.
He likes to offer all his toys potty-tunities too, including his rubber duck, trucks & balls. He's even put a door stop in the potty & said "sss sss".
DD would (optimistic past tense ) stand naked watching the stream shoot forward and calmly remark "I'm peeing".
And then walk through the puddle and complain that the floor was slippery.
(I wonder if dd will start telling dh and me "thank you for getting to the potty in time".)
