Unconventional Potty Training

 Let me begin by saying Oliver was a breeze to potty train.  No fuss, no crying.  We started at age 2.  Day time potty trained by 2 1/2 and night time dry by 3.  Hazel on the other hand has made it very clear that she will pee when she feels like it, where she feels like it.  I suppose she figured I would balk at the idea but she underestimates her mothers willingness to embrace all things unconventional.  So, out door potty training is in full swing.  I told Hazel she could pee anywhere she wanted and she would get a cookie.  Something we could both smile about. 
 In between potty time, we played with rollie pollies.

 Bonus feature... foot prints!
 When I made that sweater for Hazel I had intended it to go with some jeans or something.  I don't know, the bare bottom look kind of makes the outfit.
 After we mortified our neighbors, Oliver and Olivia shared a special moment with an exchange of flowers.
Nice work Stud!


  1. As far as I'm concerned, you do whatever it takes for them to get the idea of potty training. I have always been a fan of treats as a reward. I use that one on myself - not for potty training (I have that one down) but to get me to do other things! :)

  2. Actually I think you and I don't have potty training down as well as Oliver. He poops every day... us, not so much. ;)

  3. Starting to potty train our daughter. Reading the experiences of other parents is very helpful.
