Warning: There is a picture of poop at the end, so if you have a sensitive stomach don't continue reading!
We got Holden a toilet because he has been very interested in whats going on in his diaper and when we go to the bathroom. So we figured why not try and see what he does? We knew 100% not to push potty training and he isn't even 2 yet so it's more of a joke than anything.
So we asked Holden if he wanted to sit on the potty and he said "yea..poo poo?" So he sat on it and immediately went pee. So we got him a few chocolate chips and praised him and praised him. He immediately sat back on it after we emptied out the potty and went pee again..and again...and again...and again...and again. I think he was pushing pee out so he could get chocolate chips. He even brought his waterbottle with him to the bathroom and was chugging water.
His 1st pee in the potty
A few hours later, Kurt left to go to the gym and I was doing the dishes while Holden was sitting on his potty. After he would go he would always say "Mom" and come grab me to look at his accomplishment, even if it was a few dribbles. Well, this time he started bawling crying so I ran into the bathroom and he was sqatting on the ground with poop on the floor. I don't think he understood he could go poop in the potty as well as pee. We talked about it and I told him it was purely an accident and it was no big deal. He then ran into his room and grabbed a diaper! And that is the end of potty training.
That day he went pee probably over 10 times in the potty
And has gone about 2 times since in the past 2 weeks. Time to put the potty away and try another time!
