Garrett went pee pee on the potty for the first time today, not once but twice. The first time was just a dribble. I took off his diaper and sat him on the potty seat (that goes over the regular toilet seat) and told him to put his pee pee in the potty. He thought about it for a minute then pushed out a few dribbles. I haven't started potty training in earnest yet, just getting him used to the potty seat. But he may be more ready than I thought. He's been interested in watching all the rest of the family pee in the potty for a while, so I thought I'd give it a shot. He did great, but I'm not fooling myself. A few dribbles in the potty does not constitute a potty trained kid. Here he is showing me where his pee pee went.
I let him go without a diaper just to let him get used to being diaperless. When I was ready to put a diaper on him, I said, "Let's put your diaper on." To which he replied, "No, playin' wee wee." And he was "playin' wee wee" the whole time the diaper was off.
And then at bath time, I took off his clothes and put him on the potty seat, and then turned on the bath water. That caused a lot of pee pee to go into the potty. Of course, Garrett had to stick his hand in the urine stream to see what that felt like, something he tries to do when Daddy goes pee pee. But I didn't mind because Garrett got right into the bath, pee pee hand and all. Hopefully all will go just as well tomorrow on the potty training front.
