Potting training a toddler can be a mom's most fun life challenge as she trains her children. Some little ones just seem to "get it" and with others it's a battle. As I began to research for this subject, I've been astounded at the different ideas, tools, chart and books available for moms today.
Her sister, on the other hand, surprised me. I can remember the day, as an eighteen month old, when she came up to me, grabbed my skirt and said, "Potty." I didn't believe her. Just wasn't possible. This child insisted. It came to me, "HMMM. . . what if?" And, the what if, proved to be correct. She did - and even through the night from that point on. I smiled. Life was good.
Both Dora and Caillou have potty books. This one is almost my favorite and this one The Diaper Free Baby I find very interesting.
