MiLeStOnEs


Today marks a very exciting adventure for our 2 year old, who has decided he needs to pee in the potty like Daddy.  I am sure if you came visiting to see some decorating ideas this won't interest you but maybe if you have a potty trainer you might find this useful. My sister has 5 children and only 1 boy, but she did tell me that putting some cheerios in the potty and telling your child to try to pee in the hole worked for her son, so we gave it go! And it did, it work!  I couldn't believe it! (Today anyway)

I am pretty sure he enjoyed putting the O's in the toilet more than peeing on them and now I am sure I have taught him something I will regret later! But for now you do what works!




Off to buy some Pull-ups for my Big Boy, who will always be our baby!

Love it! I'm SO going to try this once Bradyn finally uses the big boy potty! Your son is by far the cutest two year old ever!

LOL!!! This cracks me up! I can't wait to see what else he uses this tactic on!

So cute! I've never heard of the cheerios trick (I have a girl). Potty training is such an adventure, isn't it?

YES! My sister did fruit loops for her little guys. The only trick is getting them all flushed before a younger one finds them in the toilet and tries to eat them...haha funny stories.

Wow congratulations! I will try that. We are on a progress with our three year old son too, he's getting better though. Maybe the cheerios technique will completely eliminate the diaper hehehe. Thanks for sharing.

I've heard of this cheerios trick before - - - unfortunately it was AFTER my boys were potty trained!
