We went to Target today to get a few things and one of those things was a potty chair. W. has been showing signs of "readiness" so I figured having a potty he could actually use would be beneficial to potty learning. We got it out and he sat on it, played with it, and read books about using it. He even talked about it while he was getting his haircut. He calls it his "own potty." Before he got into the bath I told him to sit on the potty while I put his clothes in his hamper in his room. When I got back to the bathroom he had pee'd in the potty!!!!!! He was so proud of himself, and so was I!! I don't plan to rush him, just encourage him.
