This thought has never occured to either of my children, and I am positive
that dh would NOT go for it!
Eli has been peeing in the potty sometimes... but this was completely
his idea. I am not in the group of EC-ers, and as far as potty "training", I learned with Aidan that when they are really, truly ready, it will be a breeze. All attempts before he got to that point were totally pointless and frustrating, as far as I'm concerned. ...So, any interest Eli has acquired in the potty has just been from watching us use it, I guess. He goes in there, stands on the stool, and pees at least once a day, sometimes more. Lately when he needs to poop, he's been saying "poop in potty" over and over. If we're at Target, I tell him to go ahead and poop if he needs to. If we're at home, we sit him on the toilet, but so far he hasn't actually produced any poop in the potty.
Aidan was 2 1/2, btw, when he decided he was ready. So, while I will accomodate Eli's interest when it is possible and convenient, I am in no way convinced that he is "ready" to be in underwear all the time, and I am not about to try to push things along with a baby coming!
Speaking of... Shalena and Rozzie'sma were about to share some belly pics with us!
