Potty Success

I had been asking Caroline if she wanted to sit on the big potty. "No!" was her emphatic answer. I just thought I'd ask, since she'd been telling us when she pooped recently, and when I asked her, "Where does poop go?" she would point to the potty. Well, somebody gave this little potty to Gran, so she brought it to us. Since Caroline was so adamantly opposed to sitting on the big potty, I wasn't even going to bring this one out for awhile. But she found it and began to play with it... so I told her it was a little potty for her. She opened it and sat down , and I said something along the lines of, "If you were going to go pee pee on the potty, we would take off your diaper." Well, she started pulling at her diaper, trying to get it off... so I went with her cues. Surprisingly, she wasn't wet at all (she'd just gotten up from a nap, and supposedly this is a good time to get them to pee in the potty anyway). She was fascinated with sitting there, standing up occasionally, then carefully sitting back down, all the while holding little bits of toilet paper. And after ten minutes, what do you know? She actually peed in the potty! Not bad for her first try!
