Potty Training

You learn something new every day! Tanya expressed her ideas about toilet training.   In Russia, she explained, a mother’s first job is to toilet train her child.  She said it was very important, especially since blankets and sheets had to be washed when soiled.  Pampers changed all that she lamented since it is so easy.  She even asked for a potty and to start training.

I took this to mean that I don’t know what I’m doing. Why, yes, I do indeed have incredibly thin skin and a persecution complex. My research tells me that you can “train” but that you will not be accident-free until a certain internal milestone is reached.  I don’t think that he’s anywhere near ready and that putting him on the potty will freak him out. He won’t sit for it.

So she wants to try.  I talked to Egor about it, he said to get her the potty and let her try. What’s the harm? Truer words were never spoken!
