Let the training begin!

The twins have begun potty training!  Nothing too structured at this point.  They’ve both been making a big deal over diaper changes lately, so it seemed like a good time to introduce the potty chair.  They’ve become slightly obsessed with the “Elmo’s Potty Time” DVD and seem very excited.  So, I brought the potty chair up from the basement to once again reside in the kids’ bathroom.  Yesterday they each tried sitting on it for a few minutes and that was as far as it went.  Today, Joshua asked to sit on the potty three times and he peed every time!  I was shocked!  I praised him like crazy and he was so proud of himself.  I hope it continues to go this easily!  Sam is being a bit more timid.  He tried sitting once again today and that was it, which was fine with me.  They’ll both figure it out in their own time.  Not trying to rush anything, but since the interest is there, I better take advantage!  It will be so nice when that day comes where I don’t have to buy diapers for two any more!!

    Good luck! We started Alex on Thanksgiving Day and after a promising start where he peed every time we put him on, things got sidetracked. Now he pees on the potty only at daycare, often running for it on his own there, yet fights us at home every which way. He turned 3 two weeks ago, and for now we’ve given up and will try again in a few months. In the meantime, the potties (one upstairs, one downstairs) are still out, just in case he wants them.
