Well, ladies and gentlemen, it is potty time in the Robinson household. (Insert face here) I thought I would be thrilled and excited and part of me really is but the other part feels like this is all happening a bit too soon. My girl is only 18 months and in my mind, I just knew we would start this around her 2nd birthday. Why 2? Because my son is 8 and I can’t remember when we started with him. (After some research it turns out we started when he was 19 months). UGH! *removing all thoughts of denial*
For a few weeks now Nori (affectionately known as my girl) will let you know when she is using the bathroom in her diaper. Well, two days ago she went all big girl on me while I was at work; and pooped in the potty. Way to show my little girl! She had her 18-month checkup last week and the pediatrician asked me about potty training. I told her we hadn’t started but I had been browsing potties. Little did I know my girl was pressing the wrap it up button on me and here we are. I was browsing potties online but I didn’t have a plan or a real-time frame in which we would start. Ooooh in yo face! O_o
So here I am shopping online for potties and I come across all kinds of foolishness. I’m talking $80 potty foolishness. Excuse me! You have no job, bring in no income, you can’t even communicate with me 100% but I am supposed to spend $80 for a device you will only poop and pee in. Don’t get me wrong some of them were super cute and all royal and throne-like but not me! I moved along and found what I think is the perfect potty for my girl.
